The Hawks waived Nene (hip) on Thursday. With the massive four-team, 12-player deal that was agreed upon earlier in the week officially approved by the NBA, the Hawks quickly parted ways with Nene, who was likely only included in the deal that sent Clint Capela (heel) to Atlanta for salary-matching purposes. Nene has been sidelined all season after a chronic left adductor injury bothered him prior to the Rockets opening training camp. The 37-year-old never resumed any on-court work with the Rockets prior to being dealt, so it's looking rather unlikely that he'll be ready to play at any point this season as he heads to the free-agent pool. Given his advanced age and lengthy injury history, Nene's 18-year NBA career could be over.
Hilario is being trading to the Hawks as part of a four-team deal, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.com reports. Hilario is part of a massive deal that will send fellow teammate Clint Capela to Atlanta as well. The 37-year-old did not take the court once for Houston this season and it remains to be seen if a new home will spark a changed role for the veteran.
Nene (hip) is listed as out for Wednesday's game against the Trail Blazers. The 37-year-old has been away from the team all season after he aggravated a chronic hip adductor injury shortly before the Rockets convened for training camp. With Houston offering few updates on Nene's rehab thus far, he's looking unlikely to make his 2019-20 debut until after the All-Star break.
Hilario (hip) is listed as out for Monday's game against the Spurs. The Rockets have provided few updates on Nene since he suffered a setback with a chronic adductor injury prior to training camp. His absence looks like it'll stretch into the 2020 portion of the Rockets' schedule.
Hilario (hip) is listed as out for Thursday's game against the Raptors. Hilario has yet to play this season while working back from a chronic hip adductor issue. The veteran big man remains without a timetable for his return.
