NEW YORK — Nene will take the court again Wednesday morning for the second time in a row, and unless there’s an 11th-hour flare up with his right foot, he’ll play tonight vs. the Brooklyn Nets (CSN, 7:30). The team, however, is calling him a game-time decision. 

Nene has missed the last four games with soreness. His absence has made it difficult for Marcin Gortat, who has had to take on some of his duties playing in the high post and facilitating. 

“We’re talking about my Achilles. I just been doing everything I could to feel better. I’ve seen progress,” Nene said. “I feel much, much better. It’s a step. A day-by-day step and reduce the pain. I’m ready to go.”

With Bradley Beal and Martell Webster back in the lineup, that leaves Al Harrington (right knee) as the only missing piece from the roster. Glen Rice (right wrist) is with the team but appears unlikely to play after hurting himself in a postgame celebration in Monday’s 102-101 win at the New York Knicks. 

“He got hurt in the celebration. Don’t ask me. I don’t know what it is. We can’t catch a break,” coach Randy Wittman said. “He’s had a sore wrist the last couple weeks but we’ve been able to take care of it enough where he can still play. He got it jammed or something in the jubilation.”
