Nene went through a full two hour practice for the Wizards on Tuesday and is hoping to make his season debut on Wednesday, if his feet respond positively in the morning.
That was a quick ride from "out indefinitely" to "back in action," although we also haven't see him play yet. This will be a big hit to guys like Kevin Seraphin, Trevor Booker and possibly Emeka Okafor, unless Seraphin continues to start at center like did for the start of the second half on Monday. As for Nene, the talent and skills are all there, but his health will likely be an issue all year. He's been out with plantar fasciitis all season, but finally appears ready to battle through it. If you have someone to cut and need a big man, go get him.
