Despite the Wizards having a laundry list of injuries during the preseason, the suspicion here was that Nene and DeJuan Blair were being held out for precautionary reasons.
With the NBA regular season tipping off this week, it's prediction time. Some bold, some straight to the point.
Nene didn't play the last four games of the preseason, instead resting his sore right calf, but he'll be on the court for Wednesday's regular-season opener at the Orlando Magic.
Some are bold, some are mild, some are straight to the point. Either way, I made lots of predictions about the Washington Wizards and the NBA for the about to tip-off 2015-16 season.
Now that the preseason is over, and the Wizards can focus on the Orlando Magic for Wednesday's regular-season opener, what can be expected in the early going?
