Description: Wizards power forward Nene is probable for Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals Saturday against Toronto
Insight: Nene is dealing with shoulder and ankle issues and didn't play the final two games of the season. Expect Nene (11.0 ppg, 5.1 rpg, 1.8 apg) to be out there, but limited in playing time.
 
4/14/2015 7:08:00 PM
Description: Wizards power forward Nene will not play on Tuesday against the Pacers.
Insight: Nene is dealing with shoulder and ankle issues, and with nothing to play for, Washington will rest him. Drew Gooden will start in his place.

Description: Wizards power forward Nene will rest against the Knicks on Friday according to CSN Washington. Small forward Paul Pierce will also not play due to rest.
Insight: Let's face it, the Knicks stink up the place, so the Wizards figure they don't need Nene to beat them. He will be back in the lineup on Saturday versus the Grizzlies. In daily leagues, Kris Humphries is a good option because he will get more opportunities on Friday without Nene.

Description: Wizards power forward Nene had his best game of the season.
Insight: He went 8-of-13 from the field and 4-of-6 from the line for 20 points, six rebounds, four assists, one steal, and two turnovers. Nene is worthy of a roster spot, but will not produce numbers like these every night.

12/1/2014 12:30:00 PM
Description: Wizards power forward Nene, who left Saturday's game due to plantar fasciitis, wasn't able to practice Monday morning and should be considered questionable ... at best.
