WAKING UP with the Wizards, who play at the Detroit Pistons tonight for their sixth exhibition game with the regular season exactly a week away. …
The Wizards have two preseason games left, Tuesday at the Detroit Pistons and Wednesday vs. the Cleveland Cavaliers in Cincinnati.
For Nene to be absent isn't all that unusual for the Wizards.
The big man sat out 21 games last season and admits he's still not at full strength because of a sore left foot and knees.
Nene is back with the Wizards and will play in Saturday's game vs. the New Orleans Pelicans in Lexington, Ky.
