News: Hilario put up 17 points (8-13 FG, 1-4 FT) to go with seven rebounds, three assists, a steal and a block in 40 minutes as the Wizards downed the Bulls in overtime Tuesday. Impact: Hilario scored the first six points of overtime while being guarded by Defensive Player of the Year Joakim Noah. The Brazilian big man is a big reason why the Wizards won the first two games against the Bulls on the road and he looks like he'll play a big role in the Wizards' run in the playoffs.(RotoWire, )

News: Hilario broke free from his minutes limit in the start Sunday by finishing with 24 points (11-17 FG, 2-5 FT), eight rebounds, three assists, two steals and one block in 35 minutes during Game 1. Impact: Hilario finished the regular season by coming off the bench and playing no more than 24 minutes in any of the four games since he returned from a two-month absence. That all changed in Sunday's outing. Based from this performance, Hilario looks like he's ready for a full workload throughout the Wizards' run in the playoffs.(RotoWire, )

News: Nene will start at power forward Sunday, the Washington Post reports. Impact: Nene missed nearly two months with a sprained MCL in his left knee this season and has been held to a minutes limit in a bench role since returning. We're unclear whether the minutes limit has been lifted, but the fact that Nene is back in the starting lineup looks promising for his fantasy value in playoffs leagues.(RotoWire, )

News: Nene insists that the team will keep his minutes to less than 20 for the regular season finale Wednesday against the Celtics, CSN Washington reports. Impact: The Wizards will play Nene on Wednesday, but likely hold him to a minutes limit to keep him fresh for the playoffs. This is not too out of the ordinary, considering he has averaged 20.3 minutes on the floor in the three games he has played since returning from in injury on April 9.(RotoWire, )

News: Nene (knee) scored 18 points (8-12 FG, 2-4 FT) to go along with four rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block in 24 minutes Monday against the Heat. Impact: Nene appears to be rounding back into shape and is an important player for the Wizards to have back into the fold for their playoff run.(RotoWire, )
Mon. Apr 14, 2014
News: Nene (knee) is on the active roster Monday and thus could see some run against the Heat, reports. Impact: Nene has yet to play more than 20 minutes since returning from injury and isn't a very enticing option due to his lack of run, as the Wizards are trying to preserve him for the playoffs.(RotoWire, )
Sat. Apr 12, 2014
News: Nene (knee) won't play in the second game of a back-to-back set Saturday against the Bucks, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. Impact: Nene, who had 10 points Friday against the Magic, will sit Saturday but should be ready to play in the playoffs. Trevor Booker may see more minutes.(RotoWire, )
Fri. Apr 11, 2014
News: Nene scored 17 points on Friday night in just his second game back after missing more than a month of action because of a sprained knee. Impact: The Washington big man has scored in double-figures in both games since returning and should be ready to go when the playoffs tip off next week.(STATS, 11:22pm)
Wed. Apr 9, 2014
News: Nene (knee) saw his first action since Feb. 23 on Wednesday, when he scored 10 points (5-9 FG, 0-4 FT) in 17 minutes against Charlotte. Impact: Nene came off the bench in his return from a sprained left MCL on Wednesday. However, given his extended lay-off and the magnitude of Wednesday's game, Nene's minutes were understandably limited. Nevertheless, he was pretty effective scoring the ball, although it's worth noting he did not record a rebound. With the Wizards expected to be careful with easing Nene back into the fold, Trevor Booker could see a few more starts at power forward, although he'll likely be relegated to the bench at some juncture. In any event, Nene probably doesn't hold serviceable fantasy value outside of the deepest leagues at this point.(RotoWire, )
Tue. Apr 8, 2014
News: Nene plans to ease himself back when he returns Wednesday from a knee injury. He expects to see limited minutes when Washington hosts the Charlotte Bobcats in a pivotal game in Eastern Conference playoff seeding. Impact: Nene returned to practice this week for the first time spraining the medial collateral ligament in his left knee Feb. 23. Nene said Tuesday his whole body is sore and he needs to get back to his "old condition." He has five games to return to full basketball shape in time for the playoffs.(STATS, 3:45pm)
Tue. Apr 8, 2014
News: Nene (knee) intends to make his return to the court Wednesday but only expects to play limited minutes, the Charlotte Observer reports. Impact: Nene could be of use in very deep leagues over the final week, but we're not using him in standard leagues or in any games on daily sites.(RotoWire, )
Mon. Apr 7, 2014
News: Nene has returned to practice after being sidelined six weeks with a sprained knee. Impact: Nene practiced Monday for the first time since he was injured Feb. 23 in a win over the Cleveland Cavaliers. Coach Randy Wittman said Nene did ''almost'' everything the Brazilian would do in a regular practice. The coach said he would wait to see how things go on Tuesday before deciding whether Nene plays Wednesday against the Charlotte Bobcats, a pivotal game for playoff seeding in the Eastern Conference.(STATS, 1:41pm)
