Nene admitted that he tore his left plantar fascia soon after re-signing with the Nuggets, the Washington Post reports. He tried to play through the injury until he could no longer do so.
Recommendation: Nene's injury problems have followed him to the Wizards, where he has missed 27 games. Many of the games he missed were due to the same foot issues that hampered him in Denver. Nene is averaging 12.3 points, 6.4 rebounds, and 2.6 assists in 23.8 minutes per game this season.
This guy is looking like a bigger and bigger catch with each passing day.
