Nene Injury Update: Denver Nuggets Center Unlikely To Play Vs. Washington Wizards

The Washington Wizards are in for a tough matchup tonight against the Denver Nuggets, but things just got a little bit easier, according to this report from J. Michael Falgoust. The Nuggets will probably be without their starting center Nene.

Nene is one of the most difficult matchups in the NBA because he combines size, strength, athleticism and a smooth offensive game. He has been averaging 13.5 ppg and nearly nine rebounds. It will be much easier tonight for the Wizards now that they don't have to deal with Nene.
