The Rockets announced that Nene will miss the remainder of the playoffs with a left adductor tear.
This is a huge blow to the Rockets with Nene being such an important piece in their rotation thus far. He was on fire in the postseason, averaging 10.0 points, 4.7 rebounds and 0.7 steals in just 17.9 minutes per game. There is no official timetable as of yet, but Nene is currently looking into his treatment options. Clint Capela will get increased minutes, while we could also see Montrezl Harrell enter the rotation. Ryan Anderson will also be asked to play some center minutes. Check back on another update.
