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.
 
1/2/2015 11:33:00 AM
Description: Wizards power forward Nene is questionable for Friday's game against Oklahoma City due to a sprained left ankle.

12/8/2014 7:34:00 PM
Description: Wizards power forward Nene was a late scratch on Monday against the Celtics.
Insight: This was unexpected after Nene played over the weekend. Hopefully, owners got him out of the lineup before tip off. Kris Humphries is a good fantasy option when Nene is not in the lineup.
 
12/3/2014 5:41:00 PM
Description: Wizards power forward Nene will not play on Wednesday against the Lakers.

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.
Insight: This is not a good sign, as Nene (10.6 ppg, 4.7 rpg) is always a threat for a multi-game stint in street clothes. DeJuan Blair and Drew Gooden would fill in accordingly.

Description: Wizards power forward Nene missed the season opener due to a one-game suspension, but should be back in the lineup for the game against Orlando.

10/27/2014 5:33:00 PM
Description: Wizards power forward Nene is a contributor to every fantasy category besides free throw percentage and 3-pointers.
Insight: Nene is still a solid fantasy contributor at the age of 33, but he is injury prone. Have a capable backup center if you draft Nene.
 
5/10/2014 11:27:00 AM
Description: Washington power forward Nene struggled from the field, shooting just 3-for-14, as did most of the Wizards' roster in Game 3.
Insight: Nene also managed just three rebounds and will have to be much better in both categories if Washington is to compete in this series.
 
Hot4/29/2014 10:37:00 PM
Description: Washington power forward Nene returned from his one-game suspension and delivered 20 points, seven rebounds, four assists, one block and one steal against the Bulls in Game 5 of the Wizards playoff series Tuesday.
Insight: Nene lost his temper and went after Bulls guard Jimmy Butler late in Friday's Game 3 loss, so he was forced to sit out Game 4, but Washington still won. The Wizards won again Tuesday to clinch the series. It was Washington's first series win since the first round in 2005, which also came against the Bulls. Nene was a huge difference-maker in the series, averaging 17.8 points, 6.5 rebounds and 3.3 assists.
