Nene activated from the injured list

Denver, CO (Sports Network) – The Denver Nuggets activated forward Nene
from the injured list on Sunday.

The 22-year old former first round pick, who has missed the last 13 games
with a sprained left knee, was injured in a loss to the New Jersey Nets back
on February 13 when he landed awkwardly on Vince Carter’s foot.

Nene has averaged 9.7 points and 5.9 rebounds in 37 games this season for
the Nuggets. For his career, the Brazilian native has averaged 10.9 points and
6.3 rebounds in three seasons, all with Denver..

To make room for Nene on the active roster, the team placed forward/center
Mark Pope on the injured list with a strained left hamstring.

Denver hosts the Milwaukee Bucks this evening.
