Nene is starting for Marcin Gortat (back), who is ruled out for Wednesday’s game against the Bulls.
Gortat’s absence caught the Wizards’ beat writers off guard and hopefully we got this out to you guys in time for some of you to get Gortat out of lineups. Their update came right at tip-off.
Update: The Polish Hammer rose from the ashes and checked into the game in the second quarter. He fared 4 minutes and went back to the bench. A trainer was seen wrapping something around his back. We’re going to say his return is questionable. He appears to be fine though.
