To get over .500 again, the Wizards have to do it without Nene, who is out six weeks with a sprained ligament in his left knee. They're just 1-6 without him this season and 7-34 overall.
When the Wizards made a move to trade two players last week for one, it was with the intention to sign a player to open roster spot.
While the Wizards hold their breath pending an MRI of Nene's left knee on Monday, they have to start considering options.
The day after matching his career high of 30 points, Nene went down hard in the middle of the third quarter with an injured left knee in a game the Cleveland Cavaliers.
