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.
Jan 30 - 2:32 PM

Nene (foot) will not play against the Suns on Wednesday.

He has a handful of foot injuries and it's hardly a surprise to see him sit. Kris Humphries will start and should be worth a look in standard leagues and DFS tonight. Nene is not worth owning in standard leagues.
Jan 28 - 9:36 PM

Nene had a quiet game vs. the Lakers on Tuesday with six points, six rebounds, two assists, one steal and two turnovers in 26 minutes.

He's averaging a mediocre 13.1 points and 5.3 boards in 26 minutes since Dec. 31, but the bigger issue is his injury history -- Nene has missed 33.0 percent of his games over the past three seasons. Backup PF/C Kris Humphries has been terrific for two straight games and Nene's owners shouldn't rely on more than top-100 value going forward.
Jan 28 - 12:56 AM

Nene scored a season-high 24 points with four rebounds, three assists and no turnovers in 34 minutes against the Thunder on Wednesday.

It's his second 20-point game in his last three and his 34 minutes tonight were the first time he's played more than 31 minutes since Nov. 20. Nene's minutes tend to fluctuate and he only played 18 minutes on Monday, so it's still going to be hard to trust him. If you want to give him a try following this game, you can give him a look.
Jan 21 - 11:40 PM

Nene stuffed the stat sheet against the Nets on Saturday with 20 points, six boards, two assists, two steals and two blocks in 28 minutes.

His minutes have solidified at 26.3 per game in 2015. In his previous nine games, Nene averaged 11.7 points, 5.7 boards, 2.6 assists and 1.0 steals on 52.4 percent from the field. That's usable production in standard leagues, but there's no need to bend over backwards to add him considering how much he's hurt.
Jan 18 - 2:40 AM

Nene grabbed 10 rebounds in 24 minutes during Tuesday's home victory, but he scored only seven points on 2-of-9 shooting, with three turnovers and zero assists or blocks.

Kris Humphries (10 points in 24 minutes) has been a thorn in Nene's side this season, essentially splitting minutes at the PF position. Nene had been on a roll with 16.3 points and 7.7 boards over the past three games, but so far this season he's outside the top-150 in 8-cat and 9-cat leagues. Owners in typical leagues should let him float along on the wire.
Jan 13 - 9:48 PM

Nene scored 14 points on 6-of-8 shooting on Sunday, adding six rebounds, one turnover, and one steal.

Nene's numbers are up so far in January, with averages of 13.0 points, 5.2 rebounds, 2.2 assists, and 1.2 steals per game. He's good for some points and steals, but his limited contributions to rebounds, and particularly blocks (0.4) make him more of a deep league asset.
Jan 11 - 6:32 PM

Nene (ankle) practiced on Thursday.

Nene had a 20-point, six-rebound outing during his last game, and given the fact that he practiced today, it's looking like his ankle injury is no longer an issue. However, the current timeshare he has with Kris Humphries has really limited his value.
Jan 8 - 2:21 PM

Nene played just 24 minutes in a start against the Knicks, but still managed 20 points, six rebounds, four assists and a steal on 8-of-13 shooting.

He really struggled on Monday but looked much better tonight, and might finally be getting healthy again after dealing with an ankle injury.
Jan 7 - 10:02 PM

Nene started and posted six points, seven rebounds and one assist in 27 minutes on Monday.

Nene and Kris Humphries (10 points, five boards, one block, 25 minutes) are locked in a value-killing timeshare. Both are deep league material at best.
