The Washington Wizards are waiting for Nene Hilario and Kevin Seraphin to return from injury, hoping they won't miss any regular season games.
According to the Washington Post, the Wizards are very optimistic that both big men will be ready to go in a few weeks when the contests start to count.
Nene is working his way back from a plantar fasciitis in his left foot, something the 6'10 Brazilian has been dealing with all summer. Head coach Randy Wittman has seen progress in Nene's recovery.
"He’s going to be able to maybe start getting some shots up and get on the floor a little bit in that manner," Wittman said. "So, it was a positive report."
As for Seraphin, the forward was injured last week against the Cleveland Cavaliers when he strained his calf. Wittman doesn't expect the ailment to have any long-term effects.
"He’s better," Whitman said. "He’s able to get up on and walk on it now. Whereas yesterday he wasn’t able to, so that’s a great sign. He’s still probably going to be a little bit of a ways away, but if he keeps making these strides, we’ll see."
