On Bleacher Report's Team Stream Now, our Devin Kharpertian broke down the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly for the Brooklyn Nets heading into 2014-2015. Check it out above.

Here we go again?

It's just the second day of camp, and Andrei Kirilenko missed practice today due to a back issue. Kirilenko missed 37 games last season, most notably because of back spasms, which he described as "the worst of my career." Today, the issue is being described as a "tight lower back."

A Nets official said Kirilenko's sitting out was just precautionary, adding that Kirilenko entered training camp in much better shape than in the previous year.

As Kirilenko enters his 13th NBA season, you have to wonder if his age, now 33, is catching up with him.
