Nene could return tonight

The Pepsi Can already promises to be electric tonight, but the Nuggets could get an extra charge with the possible return of Nene. The bruising power forward has missed most of the season after undergoing cancer surgery to remove a tumor.

“That’s a pretty great story in terms of all he’s been through,” Avery Johnson said today after shootaround.

Nene surprised his teammates this week when he took the court for scrimmage and now he appears ready to take the next step. Though he likely won’t play more than five minutes, expect the emotional boost for his teammates to last much longer.
