Without Kirilenko’s length, the Nets will struggle even more to defend Pacers forward Paul George, who’s averaging a career-high 23 points per game on 45 percent shooting.
Additionally, center Andray Blatche injured his hip in the first half of the team’s 120-95 loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder. He walked with a noticeable limp after the game.
Blatche traveled with the team to Indiana, even with his status in doubt. He’s officially listed as questionable to play.
