Report: Wizards' Nene out 4-to-6 weeks with MCL sprain
Wizards forward/center Nene is out 4-to-6 weeks with an MCL sprain, according to a report.
The Wizards just cannot catch a break this season.
After finally getting some semblance of continuity and sustained consistency in their play, power forward/center Nene went down Sunday night with a knee injury. Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports is reporting Nene will miss 4-to-6 weeks with an MCL sprain after an MRI revealed no tears or further damage to his left knee.
After initial fears of a season-ending knee injury, Wizards center Nene has suffered a sprained left medial collateral ligament and will return this season, a league source told Yahoo Sports.
Nene will miss four to six weeks, a league source told Yahoo Sports.
Nene has battled injuries the past three seasons, missing 71 games through two and a half seasons. Losing him now would put a major dent in their hopes of making noise in the playoffs, and might even threaten their odds of making it. Here's video of the injury.
Nene is fourth-best in the team in points-per-possession differential at +2.8 per 100 possessions this season with the Wizards. Washington moved back to .500 with a win Sunday at 28-28, currently the fifth seed in the East.
