Nene Injuried, Marcin Gortat to Start Friday

nene_2013 [1]After four straight injury plagued seasons (he played in just 45 percent of his teams’ games those years) Nene finally started this one healthy and was expected to be a force inside… and that lasted one game. He’s injured again although we don’ know how seriously, reports J. Michael at CSNWashington.com.

After the game, Nene could be seen limping as he left the locker room and it’s a left calf injury, CSN later confirmed….

Nene opened strong for the Wizards by hitting his first three of his first four field goals, all mid-range jump shots. But he apparently came down awkwardly with all of his weight on his left leg on the third attempt. He finished with 12 points and three rebounds in 30 minutes.

If Nene is out, you can expect to see Marcin Gortat start for the Wizards. He came off the bench in Game 1.
