The Wizards just cannot catch a break this season.

After finally getting some semblance of continuity and sustained consistency in their play, power forward/center Nene went down Sunday night with a knee injury. Now via Bullets Forever, the Washington Post reports that there is a growing fear within the season he could be lost for the rest of the season.

There is a fear among some members of the Washington Wizards that Nene is done for the season with a torn ligament in his left knee, although the team won't know for certain until the Brazilian big man meets with team doctors and has an MRI exam on Monday. According to a person with knowledge of the situation, “It doesn't look good.”

via Wizards nervously await MRI exam results for Nene.

Nene has battled injuries the past three seasons, missing 71 games through two and a half seasons. Losing him now would put a major dent in their hopes of making noise in the playoffs, and might even threaten their odds of making it. Here's video of the injury.
