Story Update: According to the Los Angeles Lakers Larry didn't practice yesterday due to right knee tendinitis, he's listed as "doubtful" for tonight's game.

One of the greatest basketball players in Wyoming Cowboy history makes his NBA regular season debut tonight.

Larry Nance Jr. successfully landed a spot on the Los Angeles Lakers 15-man roster thanks to a solid preseason with the team.

His regular season debut starts at 8:30 p.m. Wednesday night as the Lakers host the Minnesota Timberwolves. The game is nationally televised on ESPN.

He had a chance to show his athleticism a lot this preseason...

Laker fans have become really excited about their first round draft pick...

We'll miss seeing Nance in brown & gold, but wish him the best of luck in the purple & gold this season.
