C - ATL
Nene will be available tonight in an emergency against the Memphis Grizzlies.
Nene was originally scheduled to have the night off but with Kenneth Faried being ruled out due to a sore knee, he will be on stand by. PJ Tucker will see minutes as a backup behind Clint Capela tonight.
Nene will not play in Tuesday's game vs the Atlanta Hawks or on Wednesday when the Rockets take on the Memphis Grizzlies.
Nene has only averaged 12 minutes off the bench in his last eight games but the veteran is getting a couple of days off to rest up for the stretch run.
Nene saw 10 minutes off the bench vs the Philadelphia 76ers on Friday night, and he made the most of it by grabbing six rebounds and scoring four points.
The boards were Nene's most since back on December 27th when he also pulled down six. Nene should not be a part of your fantasy plans.
Nene put in six points, five boards, one dime, one block and one steal in 14 minutes of game action.
Nene is nothing but a reserve big man for the Rockets with Capela and the Manimal both healthy and working. Leave him on the wire.
Nene played 16 mins last night against the Brooklyn Nets and scored 7 points on 3-of-5 shooting and making his single free throw attempt, while also contributing four rebounds and one block.
Nene saw his most minutes since December 25th, but in the OT loss he was simply not needed as the Rockets went small for most of the game.
