Andrei KirilenkoBrooklyn Nets forward Andrei Kirilenko suffered a setback with his back spasms and will not suit up for the team tonight against the Indiana Pacers, according to Nets head coach Jason Kidd.

The injury predicated the Nets calling up sophomore Tornike Shengelia from the Springfield Armor, after the team sent him to the D-League team’s training camp just a few days ago.

Kirilenko suffered the spasms in preseason and missed the team’s regular season opener against the Cleveland Cavaliers.
