Nene is a game-time decision for the Wizards going into tonight's game vs. the Nuggets (CSN, CSNwashington.com and NBC Sports Live Extra, 6:30 p.m. ET).
While Trevor Ariza is a better one-on-one defender than Paul Pierce, the Wizards have actually been better as a unit through 17 games by allowing even fewer points and lesser accuracy.
Wizards radio voice Glenn Consor joins Sports Talk Live to talk about the great start to the Wizards season, Paul Pierce's impact,why Ernie Grunfeld should get a lot of credit and more.
Nene could play for the first time in six games vs. his old team, the Nuggets, but the Wizards won't be sure until he goes through morning shootaround with his sore right foot.
