Calf Injury Puts Nene on Bench
Chris Dempsey of the DENVER POST reports, "A number of NBA stars are not playing for their country in the Olympic qualifying tournament for the very reason of what happened Saturday to Nuggets forward Nene. Nene suffered a right calf strain in Brazil's semifinal loss to Argentina. While the extent of the damage isn't known, a Brazilian team doctor said through a spokesman that the injury was "bad" and estimated he could be out four to six weeks. If correct, it could keep Nene out of the first weeks of training camp, which starts in early October. All of this will be clearer once Nuggets doctors examine Nene, who is expected to be in Denver on Monday."
