NBA: Six minutes into Saturday's 111-100 win over the Milwaukee Bucks, Washington's Nene left the game with a right plantar fascia injury. The power forward, who is averaging 11.5 points and 5.2 rebounds per game, has sat out games because of plantar fasciitis in his left foot since being traded to the Wizards in March 2012, but the other foot now has flared up. Small forward Otto Porter Jr., a second-year player averaging 8.1 points per game off the bench, did not play in Saturday's game because of tightness in his left hamstring. He said the decision to sit out Saturday was a precautionary measure.
