Nene will be held out of Wednesday's game against the Kings for rest, Craig Ackerman of AT&T SportsNet Southwest reports. The Rockets are electing to sit out most of their regular rotation as Wednesday is the regular season finale. With a few days off before the playoffs begin, it seems as though Houston is looking to get their guys an extra night off and prevent any injuries from occurring before the postseason begins.
Nene finished with seven points (2-5 FG, 3-7 FT), eight rebounds and one steal during Tuesday's 120-104 victory over the Wizards. Nene ended up being tagged as probable heading into the contest but word did not come through prior to tipoff regarding whether he would take the floor or not. He ended up seeing his usual workload and producing well, coming relatively close to a double-double.
Hilario (back) has been upgraded to probable for Tuesday's matchup with the Wizards, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports. Hilario has missed two consecutive games with a sore lower back, but if all goes well during pregame warmups, he's expected to be available off the bench. That said, with Clint Capela healthy and starting as usual, Hilario will likely be stuck with minutes in the teens or low-20s as a reserve, which limits his overall fantasy impact.
Nene (back) is listed as questionable for Tuesday's game against the Wizards, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports. Nene has missed the last two games while nursing a sore lower back, but there appears to be some growing optimism regarding his status for Tuesday. Expect another update on Nene following the team's shootaround in the morning.
Nene (back) will not play in Sunday's game against San Antonio, Craig Ackerman of AT&T SportsNet Southwest reports. Nene will be missing his second straight game due to lower back soreness. Tarik Black handled much of the backup center duties in Nene's absence on Friday and will likely do so again Sunday. Looking ahead, Nene's next chance to play will be on Tuesday against the Wizards.
