Nene had an MRI on his left calf strain Tuesday, after the Wizards left to play a game at the Toronto Raptors, to determine if his leg is OK to do more.
He hasn't played since Nov. 27 because of the tear in the muscle. Nene initially injured it six days prior in a game against the Detroit Pistions but made it worse when the Wizards were playing two games in three nights.
Angered that he pushed himself because the calf didn't feel right going into that game, the 7-footer walked off the court in disgust after just two minutes against the Boston Celtics.
He told CSNmidatlantic.com on Tuesday that even though he has been doing more individual drills, he still has to determine if he can push off the injured leg without discomfort before knowing when he can play again.
The MRI is the first step before he literally takes his next step. Nene, Gary Neal (thigh), Bradley Beal (leg) and Drew Gooden (calf) also didn't make the trip north for Wednesday's game in Toronto (CSN+, CSNmidatlantic.com and NBC Sports Live Extra, 7:30 p.m. ET).
