Nene scored 10 points on 4-of-8 shooting (2-of-5 from the line), adding seven rebounds, three steals, one assist and two turnovers through 34 minutes of action on Sunday.
Nene isn't a very exciting guy to own, posting averages of just 10.0 points, 5.0 rebounds, 1.3 assists, 0.6 steals and 2.5 turnovers per game on 42.7 percent shooting from the field through the month of March. If you're in an extremely deep league and desperate for a big, you can justify having Nene on your roster, but he's not a great guy to own in standard leagues. Mar 29 - 5:17 PM

Nene scored 14 points on 6-of-14 shooting with seven rebounds, one steal and one block over 26 minutes in Friday's loss to the Clippers.

Nene isn't producing anything close to 12-14 team value in standard leagues recently, but has been showing signs of heating up. If he can near that threshold we'll let you know.
Mar 21 - 3:01 AM

Nene returned to the lineup on Monday against the Blazers with 12 points, seven rebounds, two assists and one block in 31 minutes.

He missed the last two games due to the birth of his twins. Nene picked up a little more playing time that usual tonight and will likely be closer to 25. Plus, he's a candidate to be rested with a road game on a back-to-back set coming up on Sunday for the Wizards. Owners in most leagues can probably do better.
Mar 16 - 9:40 PM

Nene (personal) will play against the Blazers on Monday night.

He missed two games due to the birth of his twins. With Nene back, Drew Gooden will slide back into a bench role. The Wizards do have a road game in a back-to-back set on Sunday, so there's a chance Nene sits out for that game.
Mar 16 - 5:20 PM

Nene (personal) is expected to return to the Wizards on Monday, a source told Marc J. Spears of Yahoo! Sports.

He was at shootaround and is expected to play. If Nene does serve his usual role, it would send Drew Gooden back to the bench with Kevin Seraphin's role shrinking. If he's out again, Gooden should start, Seraphin's role would be increased and even DeJuan Blair could get in on the fun.

Nene (personal) will not play against the Kings on Saturday.

He has been out due to the birth of his children, so it's great to hear he's missing time for good reasons. With Nene out, Drew Gooden will get another start and should get close to 30 minutes with Kris Humphries (groin) also out. DeJuan Blair and Kevin Seraphin could get close to 10 minutes each, as well.
Mar 14 - 5:26 PM

Nene (personal) was not at practice on Friday.

There's no word yet if he'll be able to play on Saturday, so we would consider him questionable. If he's out, Drew Gooden would likely get another start with DeJuan Blair and Kevin Seraphin backing him up.
Mar 13 - 3:35 PM

Nene (personal) is out for Thursday's game vs. the Grizzlies, and Drew Gooden will start in his place.

In his previous start this season, Gooden put up 18 points, five rebounds, and a 3-pointer, so he's worth a look as a plug-and-play option in daily leagues. It's not currently known how long Nene will be away from the team, but we'll be considering him questionable for Saturday's game against the Kings. Stay tuned.
Mar 12 - 6:54 PM

Nene fouled out of Tuesday's game with zero points in 20 minutes of action, though he did get six rebounds, two assists and two steals.

The veteran PF said before the game that he "hates" the Bulls but he didn't support his comment with any actions tonight, and the Wizards fell 92-97 in Chicago. Nene has been a borderline fantasy option, due largely to his 25-minute role, and he's only worth deploying if you're in need of rebounds, steals and especially FG percentages.
Mar 3 - 11:10 PM

Nene scored 21 points against the Pistons on Saturday with seven rebounds, one assist and two steals in 30 minutes.

It's his first 20-point game since Jan. 24 and Nene hasn't been very productive since. In his previous February games, he averaged just 11.2 points, 4.6 boards and 2.0 assists on 55.0 percent from the field and 52.0 percent from the line. He's not worth owning in standard leagues.
Feb 28 - 9:38 PM

Nene was quiet in 21 minutes vs. Detroit, finishing with four points on 2-of-10 field goals and 0-of-2 free throws.

He grabbed five rebounds with four assists and two steals, but hurt 9-cat owners by turning the ball over four times during his limited time on the court. Kris Humphries continues to play well off the bench and Nene is averaging only 27 minutes over the past month, making him a borderline option in most 12-team leagues.
Feb 22 - 6:38 PM

Nene hit 7-of-8 shots for 14 points, four rebounds, three assists and four steals in Wednesday's loss to Toronto.

Nene is averaging 13.2 points, 4.0 rebounds, 2.2 assists and 1.0 steals on 62 percent shooting over his last five games, and while his rebounding is pretty bad, he has traditionally been a good steals guy, and he's scoring in double figures consistently right now.
Feb 11 - 11:13 PM

Nene played 38 minutes against the Raptors on Saturday with 16 points, four rebounds, two assists and one block.

He looked fine after a day of rest on Wednesday. Nene getting this much playing time is unusual and his fantasy owners can expect him to see minutes in the 20s. Considering the likelihood of him missing games, he's not a must-own player.
Jan 31 - 11:19 PM

Nene (foot) will play against the Raptors on Saturday.

He missed Wednesday for precautionary reasons and should get his normal amount of playing time. Nene and Kris Humphries will split the minutes at power forward.
Jan 31 - 5:25 PM

Nene (foot) did practice on Friday and is expected to play on Saturday against the Raptors.

He rested on Wednesday on the second game of a back-to-back set and coach Randy Wittman said it was precautionary. Nene will get a few more rest days throughout the season, so he's going to be tough to own in standard leagues. If you grabbed Kris Humphries because of Nene's absence from Wednesday, you might want to adjust your expectations.
