Beginning today, Nuggets F Nenê will take an indefinite leave of absence from the team to tend to a personal medical issue.
“I’m very upset that I have to put a little delay on being with the team to take care of my health,” said Nenê. “It is hard to go through when things seem to be going so well. I thank God that he showed me this issue so I can take care of it. I want to get back on the court as soon as possible to help my teammates. My family and I ask that you respect our privacy during this time.”
“Our thoughts and prayers are with Nenê and his family,” said Nuggets Head Coach George Karl. “Our main focus is to support him as a family and as teammates.”
The Nuggets organization will continue to support Nene’s wishes and respect his privacy. The team will provide further information when it becomes available.
Nenê, 6-11, 260, is in his sixth season with the Nuggets.
