Nene to have one chemotherapy treatment

Denver Nuggets F Nenê will undergo one treatment of chemotherapy on Tuesday, Feb. 26.  The treatment is preventative and essentially eliminates the odds of a recurrence.

Following chemotherapy, Nenê will have a short period of recovery, after which he is cleared by physicians to begin working his way back to the court.  However, there remains no exact timetable for his return.

Nenê had surgery on Jan. 15 to remove a malignant testicular tumor and has been out since taking a medical leave of absence on Jan. 11.
