Nene Didn't Aggravate Plantar Fasciitis In Extended Minutes
Nene didn’t aggravate the plantar fasciitis in his left foot while scoring 19 points against the Bobcats on Saturday, but he was noticeably fatigued late in the game. Nene played a surprising 29 minutes in the game, as he has been limited to 20 minutes previously.
Nene sat out the Washington Wizards' light practice on Sunday.
Nene returned a few weeks earlier than expected, but doesn't feel forced back due to the Wizards' struggles.
“Pressure? All the players have pressure. There’s not pressure on me,” Nene said. “I just got back, and I try to do my best.”
Nene is expected to play on Monday against the Spurs.
