Rockets center Nene will miss the remainder of the playoffs with a left adductor tear.

Nene took himself out of the game after throwing down a breakaway dunk in the first quarter of Houston’s 125-104 Game 4 win over the Spurs.

Initially diagnosed as a left groin injury, an MRI Monday morning revealed a tear.
