Nene's return near
Karl has gone from hopeful to optimistic about Nene's chances of playing in Game 2 against the Los Angeles Lakers.
"My gut says that there's a good chance he'll play," Karl said.
Nene did some running at practice and will be evaluated today after the shootaround. The Nuggets desperately need some added bulk in the middle after Lakers center Pau Gasol eased his way to 36 points and 16 rebounds in the opener.
"If Nene can give us some minutes, that will give us some presence on Gasol," Karl said.
