Description: Wizards power forward Nene left Saturday's game due to plantar fasciitis.

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.
Insight: Drew Gooden had a big game in his absence (18 points, five rebounds), but should return to his backup role.
 
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.

Description: Washington power forward Nene struggled from the field, shooting just 3-for-14, as did most of the Wizards' roster in Game 3.

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.

Insight: Nene lost his temper and went after Bulls guard Jimmy Butler late in Friday's Game 3 loss. Trevor Booker (6.8 ppg, 5.3 rpg) and Drew Gooden (8.3 ppg, 5.2 rpg) will see more minutes in his absence.

Description: Wizards PF/C Nene was ejected from Game 3 of the Eastern Conference quarterfinals against the Bulls on Friday for escalating an altercation with Jimmy Butler.
Insight: Nene and Butler came face to face and Butler must have said something Nene objected to because Nene grabbed the shooting guard around the head with both hands. He could be looking at a suspension.

Description: Wizards power forward Nene (knee) is probable for Monday's game against Miami.

Description: Wizards power forward Nene (knee) will return Wednesday, the team announced.
Insight: Nene missed the last 21 games with a sprained MCL. He'll play limited minutes at first but his return will eliminate whatever fantasy value Trevor Booker and Drew Gooden had.
 
4/5/2014 1:23:00 PM
Description: Wizards power forward Nene, diagnosed with a sprained MCL, could return on Wednesday, according to a csnwashington report.
Insight: The injury was supposed to keep Nene (14.2 ppg, 5.8 rpg, 3.0 apg) out for 4-to-6 weeks so this is in line with his original timeframe. His playing time could be limited until the postseason.
 
3/24/2014 4:17:00 PM
Description: Wizards power forward Nene, diagnosed with a sprained MCL, could be ready by the first week in April, according to a Yahoo report.

Insight: The injury will keep him out 4-to-6 weeks. Dropping Nene is understandable if you can't spare a roster spot. Backup Kevin Seraphin (5.5 ppg, 2.7 rpg) could be worth a look in deeper formats.

Description: Washington PF/C Nene is headed for an MRI on his injured knee with what the team fears may be a torn ligament, according to a Washington Post report.
