Gortat Bracing for Bigger Role with Nene Out

Basketball Insiders

The Wizards will be without Nene on Sunday for a critical game they’ll need to win to maintain home-court advantage in this series. But they are more confident about their chances after going 13-9 in games Nene missed after he sprained his left knee on Feb. 23.

“It’s going to be a huge loss for us,” said (Marcin) Gortat, who is averaging 11.7 points and 9.7 rebounds in the series and recorded two double-doubles. “Inside offense is going to go through me. There is an opportunity for me to play a bigger role. I just got to perform. I got to be on top of my game.”

LeBron James tested his injured left ankle during a portion of practice Sunday, but it’s still not known if he’ll play in Cleveland’s season opener.

James has been slowed since spraining his ankle in practice on Sept. 27. The three-time NBA champion sat out the Cavaliers’ first three exhibition games before making his debut last week against Chicago. He played 30 minutes but may have aggravated his ankle while making a spin move in the loss.
