NBA free-agent forward-center Drew Gooden is expected to sign a 10-day contract with the Washington Wizards following the loss of Nene, sources told Yahoo Sports.

Nene, who was averaging 14.2 points and 5.8 rebounds, is expected to miss six weeks after being diagnosed with a sprained MCL on Monday. Gooden is expected to sign with the Wizards on Tuesday, though the 11-year NBA veteran would likely not play that night against the Orlando Magic as his first practice with Washington is scheduled for Wednesday, according to a source familiar with the circumstances.
