MIAMI -- Nene hasn't fully practiced since the Wizards' season-opening loss to the Detroit Pistons, but the 7-footer was circled as active by coach Randy Wittman before tip off vs. the Miami Heat on Sunday.
As introductions took place, Nene was on the court with his teammates in a suit.
Nene (left calf) came down awkwardly on his leg on a shot in the 113-102 loss at the Pistons on Wednesday. He did run on the treadmill at Verizon Center before the team departed for Miami.
The outlook was bleak after the Wizards blew a 14-point lead to the Philadelphia 76ers in their home-opener on Friday because John Wall appeared in doubt because of back spasms. Wall sat out both practices leading into this game, but he assured he'd play when the Wizards shot around at American Airlines Arena on Sunday morning.
