The string on injuries hitting the Denver Nuggets continued on Saturday night when Nene left the court against the Indiana Pacers with a calf strain, reports HoopsWorld. He is expected to miss a few games. Nene had 11 points and five rebounds in 22 minutes before he was forced from the game.
The Nuggets play three games during the week, one at home against the Phoenix Suns and then on the road against the Dallas Mavericks and the Memphis Grizzlies. He might sit out all three of those so he can be ready for Sunday's game against the Oklahoma City Thunder, the first meetup between the two teams this season. It is ESPN's Sunday Night Game of the Week.
