Brooklyn Nets forward Andrei Kirilenko and rookie guard Markel Brown were held out of Nets practice Monday, according to the team.
Kirilenko has been away from the team since just prior to their two-game road trip over the weekend. The team cited “personal reasons” for Kirilenko’s departure, but reports and confirmations by The Brooklyn Game indicate that Kirilenko’s “probably” played his last game in Brooklyn, due to his diminished role with the team, and they’re scouring the trade market to unload him.
Brown, who made his NBA debut Saturday night and hit a three-pointer for his first career points, was held out with a right hip pointer.
The Nets play next Wednesday night in Philadelphia against the 0-13 76ers.
