The loss of Nene isn't a shock to the Wizards. This rodeo isn't anything new, though this time it's for a prolonged period -- six weeks -- and during the stretch run of the regular season.
With Nene out for at least the next six weeks the Wizards will turn to the likes of Kevin Seraphin, Chris Singleton, and Trevor Booker to fill that void.
Tuesday could be the start of Chris Singleton's future if he can help secure the Wizards' for their first postseason berth since 2008.
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.
