Nene Could Miss Games Due to Left Calf Injury

Nene is listed as day-to-day with a left calf injury, but according to Denver Nuggets head coach George Karl, the big fella could be out of the lineup for a while. Per the Denver Post: “First it was the left heel, and now it’s the left calf that could keep the Nuggets big man sidelined. Officially he is listed as questionable for Denver’s next game, Tuesday at home against Phoenix. But after Saturday’s win at Indiana, coach George Karl said: ‘How long Nene will be out, I don’t know. He’ll probably miss Tuesday’s game, maybe a few more. … I haven’t heard the specifics, just someone whispering to me that it might be four or five days.’ The Nuggets had a rare day off Sunday and will return to practice today. Nene injured the calf against the Pacers — he had already tallied 11 points and five rebounds in 22 minutes. He has missed five of Denver’s 28 games this season and missed much of training camp, while his representatives worked out his new contract with the Nuggets.”
