Analysis: He's scored in double figures in three straight games, averaging 16.7 on 74.1 percent shooting with 5.7 boards. Nene started in place of Clint Capela on Friday, but that was just to match up with Joel Embiid.
Jan. 25 2:30 PM PT3:30 PM MT4:30 PM CT5:30 PM ET22:30 GMT6:30 3:30 PM MST5:30 PM EST2:30 UAE (+1)23:3017:30 ET4:30 PM CTNaN:� - Nene (rest) will not play Wednesday at Boston.
Analysis: Nene, who was also given the night off Friday for some rest, was coming off a solid showing Monday at Milwaukee, scoring 17 points and grabbing seven boards. The point and rebound totals were each one off season highs.

Analysis: The 34-year-old had not missed a game since Dec. 10. Nene no longer has much fantasy value, often playing fewer than 20 minutes off the bench.

Analysis: Nene's playing time surely will increase with starting center Clint Capela sidelined at least four weeks after an MRI revealed he has a small fracture on his left fibula.
July 6 10:35 AM PT11:35 AM MT12:35 PM CT1:35 PM ET17:35 GMT1:35 10:35 AM MST12:35 PM EST21:35 UAE19:3513:35 ET12:35 PM CT16:35 - The Houston Rockets have agreed to terms with Nene on a one-year, $2.9 million deal.
Analysis: Nene averaged 9.2 points and 4.6 rebounds in 57 games for the Washington Wizards last season. When healthy, the Brazilian remains a formidable presence in the paint who can give the offensive-minded Rockets some needed toughness.
