Nene made 1-of-5 from the field for four points with five rebounds, two assists and one steal in 20 minutes against the Celtics on Saturday.
He's playing just 21.5 minutes per game since his return to the lineup earlier this month and he's missing a lot of free throws, as well. Nene is too injury prone to be worth owning in standard leagues at this point. Dec 27 - 9:14 PM

Nene scored 12 points (on 6-of-8 shooting) in his return to the starting lineup, but only managed to add two rebounds, one assists, one steal, and one turnover over 24 minutes of action.

Nene's struggles from the line (53.8 percent) and low rebounding totals (5.3 per game) really limit his upside. He remains a constant injury risk, but if you're in desperate need of a big man, he's capable of filling the position in standard leagues. Kris Humphries put up 14 points and six rebounds over 29 minutes off the bench, and it looks like the two are destined for a timeshare.
Dec 25 - 3:52 PM

Nene will start against the Knicks on Christmas Day.

This will be Nene's first start since November 22 as he's come off the Wizards' bench for the last nine games following his knee injury. Fantasy owners can feel free to plug the 32-year-old into their lineups, while his return to the starting lineup will put a dent in Kris Humphries' value.
Dec 25 - 11:35 AM

Nene hit 8-of-10 shots for 20 points, six rebounds, two assists and one steal in 26 minutes on Friday against the Heat.

Kris Humphries played just 13 minutes and perhaps Nene is ready to take the lion's share of minutes back at power forward. He has health issues and hasn't been great this season, but Nene is worth a look if you need a big.
Dec 20 - 1:05 AM

Nene played through his sore knee on Wednesday and had 12 points, six rebounds and a block off the bench in 21 minutes.

Kris Humphries started again and could keep the job, but regardless of which player is starting a week from now, given Nene's injury history, a timeshare looks very likely going forward.
Dec 10 - 9:43 PM

Nene (foot, knee) is available to play against the Magic on Wednesday.

He will come off the bench and we're not expecting him to play more than 20 minutes tonight. If you were planning on rolling Kris Humphries tonight, this news shouldn't totally dissuade you. Nene's return is more likely going to hurt Drew Gooden.
Dec 10 - 5:35 PM

Nene (knee, plantar fasciitis) expects to play on Wednesday, though he's officially listed as questionable.

He made it through shootaround without any setbacks, though his right foot is still causing him pain and he's unlikely to log more than 20 minutes in a bench role. Kris Humphries will earn another start at PF and is worth deploying as a source of low-volume scoring and rebounds.
Dec 10 - 5:08 PM

Nene (knee) will be a game-time decision for Wednesday's game against the Magic.

He was unable to play in Monday's game vs. the Celtics, so owners will once again have to check back prior to tip-off for the official word. Nene is no longer a must-own player considering he has been benched in favor of Kris Humprhies, and will likely be brought along slowly in an effort to keep him fresh for playoffs. If Nene can't go, Humphries will be an excellent plug-and-play option.
Dec 10 - 11:54 AM

Nene (knee) will not play against the Celtics on Monday.

This news comes just a few minutes before tip, so get hm out of your lineup ASAP. Nene has a slew of injuries in his NBA career and he could miss more time. Kris Humphries makes sense as a spot-start tonight.
Dec 8 - 6:54 PM

Coach Randy Wittman said Nene needs to get into shape.

This might explain why the Wizards aren't playing him many minutes. Kris Humphries should have a couple more games to put up numbers, so give him a look if you need some short-term help. Neither are terrific adds in standard leagues.
Dec 8 - 5:34 PM

Nene played just 16 minutes against the Celtics on Sunday with five points, six boards and one block.

The Wizards are going to cap his minutes for a little while longer and he's going to come off the bench. Nene has too many injuries in his past to count on him in standard leagues and it would appear Kris Humphries is the better asset right now.
Dec 7 - 4:14 PM

Nene will continue to come off of the bench and play limited minutes in an effort to avoid re-aggravating his plantar fasciitis.

He was able to play 18 minutes in his return on Friday and played well with eight points, eight rebounds, two steals and one block. Washington is going to do everything they can to keep him healthy throughout the season which makes it tough to own him in standard leagues. Until Nene sees his minutes increase, he will only be an asset in deeper leagues while Kris Humphries will continue seeing decent minutes until further notice.
Dec 6 - 10:35 AM

Nene played 18 minutes off the bench on Friday against the Nuggets with eight points, eight rebounds, two steals and one block.

He didn't get big minutes against his former team, but the Wizards crushed them tonight. Nene probably won't see many minutes because the team is likely concerned with him aggravating his plantar fasciitis, so he's not necessarily a player to own in standard leagues.
Dec 5 - 10:14 PM

Nene (foot) will play on Friday against the Nuggets and come off the bench.

He is very likely to see limited playing time, which sounds like it'll be about 20 or so. Nene is not a fantasy option tonight and he's a questionable player to own just because of all the injuries. Kris Humphries takes a hit.
Dec 5 - 6:40 PM

Nene (foot) was a full participant during shootaround, but remains a game-time decision for Friday's game vs. the Nuggets.

Nene is likely going to be a minutes restriction upon his return, making him an unattractive option in most leagues. If he does play, Kris Humphries will head to the bench, and it'll be difficult for him to put up any meaningful numbers in standard leagues. Stay tuned.
