Lakers’ Larry Nance Jr. tried to keep playing despite suffering concussion

first_img“He’s a tough kid. He’s skilled kid,” Walton said. “He got up there, did what he had to do and walked off. He wanted to keep playing.”The reason seemed simple.“I did not want him to take me out,” Nance said. “I knew if he took me out, things would start to cool down and stiffen up a bit.”Lakers guard Jordan Clarkson then took an intentional foul 13 seconds later to stop the game. But apparently it should have happened sooner.“They didn’t foul because he told them all that he was good,” Walton said. “When I tried to take him out, he tried to argue his case to stay in. But we took him out.” SACRAMENTO >> The back of Larry Nance Jr.’s head landed with a hard thud. The Lakers’ second-year forward stayed on the floor and put his hands around his skull.Even if it took him a few moments to stand up, Nance told teammates he felt fine before sinking a pair of free throws early in Sunday’s game against Phoenix. The Lakers then diagnosed Nance with a concussion. That prompted Lakers second-year guard D’Angelo Russell to tell him, “his word doesn’t matter to me anymore.”Nance received clearance to return for the Lakers’ 101-91 victory over the Sacramento Kings on Thursday at Golden 1 Center after previously missing Tuesday’s contest against Dallas.Lakers coach Luke Walton raved beforehand about Nance’s “basketball IQ and “pride in doing the little things,” which made it unsurprising his two points, seven rebounds and two steals represented a key third-quarter run. But Walton also gushed about Nance making a pair of foul shots despite his dire medical state. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorcenter_img That seemed like a good idea, namely, because Nance had a foggy memory on nearly everything that happened.“I didn’t want them to foul,” Nance said, “but I don’t know how long it took or who came and got me.”What doesn’t Nance remember?“I don’t remember falling. I don’t remember hitting my head,” Nance said. “I don’t remember getting t the bench. But I remember hitting the free throws and coming out of the game. I didn’t know about the concussion at that point until I got back in the locker room. I did some testing and couldn’t touch my nose.”Since then, Nance had to abide by the NBA’s concussion protocol. Through four days, Nance had to complete a series of stationary bike, jogging, running and agility drills without showing any symptoms. He took shots during morning shootaround and pre-game warmups on Thursday before doctors determined he stayed symptom free.And to illustrate his progress, Nance stared at a video camera and touched his nose.“I feel great now,” Nance said, smiling.Nance did not feel great earlier this week. But that did not stop him from hitting a pair of free throws.MIXED SENTIMENTThe conflicted feelings emerged for every moment Lakers forward Thomas Robinson reflected on his rookie season with the Sacramento Kings.Thomas, who the Kings selected fifth overall in the 2012 NBA draft, argued his midseason trade to Houston “sent my career on a rocky route” playing for five other NBA teams.“I was a young player and didn’t know much as far as being a professional,” said Robinson, who made the Lakers’ roster on a non-guaranteed deal. “I know a lot more now as a professional that I wish I knew as a rookie.”Yet, Thomas also expressed gratitude for the Kings both for center DeMarcus Cousins mentoring him and for drafting him.“I got shipped out too early. That’s the business though,” Thomas said. “No hard feelings. I love this organization. They gave me a chance. They started my career. So it’s always love.”ETC.The Lakers will fly to New Orleans on Friday morning and then have an early evening practice. Walton made this call so the Lakers would not feel as sluggish if they arrived at their hotel early Friday morning.Lakers center rookie Ivica Zubac has been on the inactive roster because of week-long back soreness. He participated in Wednesday’s morning shootaround and plans to practice on Thursday.last_img read more
