This report is a shame because Nene was starting to light it up on the court, and is two days removed from a game winning dunk and career highs in points.
The Washington Post is reporting that Nene could miss the remainder of the season after suffering a knee injury.
There is a fear among some members of the Washington Wizards that Nene is done for the season with a torn ligament in his left knee, although the team won’t know for certain until the Brazilian big man meets with team doctors and has an MRI exam on Monday. According to a person with knowledge of the situation, “It doesn’t look good.”
Nene reportedly need a wheelchair to board the team plane.
Washington moved back to .500 with a win Sunday at 28-28, currently the fifth seed in the East.Powered by Sidelines
