Nene is still on a minutes limit for the Washington Wizards due to plantar fasciitis in his left foot, having played under 25 minutes in 10 out of his last 11 games, including the past nine.
The Wizards will determine if Nene is prepared for an increase in minutes during the team's next stretch of four games in five nights.
“You don’t want to add minutes to a brutal schedule. We’ll see when we get through this schedule here, after Christmas, seeing where we’re at in terms of adding,” said Wittman, who has found it difficult to monitor Nene's minutes. “But yeah, I anticipate that’s the direction we’re headed in, of those minutes starting to increase.”
