Default Re: Larry Nance Jr out for 4 weeks

His value to the team was obvious in our blowout defeat at the hands of Portland 1/10/17. Mozgov is good against traditional lineups, but when teams go small or start small he seems to be a liability. This is why Cleveland brought him off the bench during their championship run last year.

Nance Jr is probably the only big we have that is a good perimeter defender. Going forward I think Walton needs to be a little more flexible with lineups. Against teams that really rely on a stretch 4 for spacing, we should consider starting games small as well, starting either a Nance Jr, Robinson, or Black in place of Mozgov.

Also, Nick Young is giving us good defensive effort but I think Clarkson is a real pest on defense, and should probably get some starting nods against certain teams.
