Report: Nene May Have Torn Left ACL

by April 29, 2010

The Denver Post reports that the Nuggets (who staved off elimination from the Playoffs last night) may not have the services of their big man for the rest of this season: “The Nuggets sure hope they’re wrong, but a source familiar with the situation said the team is extremely fearful that Nene tore his left ACL in Wednesday’s Game 5. Nene was attended to by team trainers and doctors after his second-quarter fall, and today he will undergo the revealing MRI. The team listed the injury as a left knee sprain.”
