NBA Playoffs, Jazz Nuggets: Nene knee only sprained, could return for game 7

Apr 29, 2010, 3:04 PM EDT

That sigh of relief you just heard came from the city of Denver, where the news is out that Nene’s knee injury is not that bad.

It is simply a sprain, he is not traveling to game six in Utah Friday but could be available for a game seven Sunday in Denver, according to Chris Thomason of FanHouse. Nene is officially listed as day to day.

Having Nene back, even not at 100 percent, would be a huge lift for the Nuggets, who need to win the battle inside to win this series. But first they will need to get to a game seven, which means winning game six on the road without him. A tall order, but something they are capable of.

Game six is going to be a fun one to watch.
