How's your foot? Nene: My Achilles, it's better. It's progressing. It's still a little sore. It's hard to warm up, and get relief. Do you have a return date in mind yet? We'll see day-by-day. Today, I played a little bit, and we'll see how I feel tomorrow. Grantland

Will you play in the FIBA World Cup in 2014 if Brazil gets a wild-card bid? I don't know. I had injuries in the past, and that gave other players the opportunity to play, to develop a little bit, to get experience. The season here, in the NBA, is almost 115 games if you make the playoffs. [The Brazilian Basketball Confederation has] no clue what it is. At the end of the season, you need rest. You need to calm yourself down a little bit. Grantland
