Wizards’ Nene Ready for Start of Season?
Will Nene be eased back into the picture or will he be pushed full-speed ahead? The 7-footer spent the summer rehabilitating from various injuries, both shoulders, both knees and his left foot, as he split his off-season between homes in Denver and Brazil.
“He got in town Aug. 30. He’s been on the floor. He feels good,” Wizards head coach Randy Wittman said. ”He’s had a whole summer where he didn’t have to worry about the pounding and the stuff he did last summer having the injuries he did and having to play on the (Brazil) national team and never gave his body a chance to recover. He’s feeling good. He looks good. I’m pretty pleased with that. I anticipate him being ready to go.I anticipate we’ll head into the season with no restrictions.”
