Denver Nuggets forward Nene is scheduled to undergo a single chemotherapy treatment next week as part of his recovery from testicular cancer.
The team said in a news release Thursday that the treatment is preventative, and that it "essentially eliminates the odds of a recurrence."
The 25-year-old Nene had surgery last month to remove a malignant tumor. He took an indefinite medical leave of absence from the team January 11th.
The team says Nene will have a short period of recovery after the chemotherapy on Tuesday, but there's no timetable for his return to the court.
