With JaVale McGee and his crazy antics gone, the Wizards need a presence in the middle. Nene just may be the answer. This past week, the newly acquired forward/center recorded two 20-plus point, 10-plus rebound games. Then, he was ruled out with back spasms for Sunday's contest against the Celtics. But even though he was out, Trevor Booker and Kevin Seraphin filled in nicely. As long as these guys can stay healthy, a frontcourt that includes Nene, Booker and Seraphin could be a decent replacement for the void left by McGee. —Jose Martinez
