    I saw him running awkwardly up and down the court last night. Anyone else see this or is it just how he normally runs? It made me cringe thinking his plantar fasciitis might limit him from playing 30+ minutes regularly (esp. in playoffs).

    I think the reason he didn't play many minutes last night is to rest him and avoid any injury or further injuries. He didn't have his usualy pep last night, at least from what I could tell, although I was up in the upper bowl. I'd say they are resting him, letting him recover more from his foot injury

    plantar fasciitis has Nene on a 22 min/ night limit or something close to it.

    He hasn't looked the same since the injury.

    I'd like to know how he feels, and what they aren't telling us.

    Is he playing at 60%?

    I have always thought that favors runs kind of awkwardly..... He runs very stiff looking, kinda like he has a sore back all the time.
    I dont think it is due to the foot thing, i think this is just how he runs normally.

    PF is brutal and can be totally incapacitating. If he truly had it, there's no way he should have come back as quickly as he did.

    I agree. The thought of jumping while having it makes me cringe.
