Will Andrei Kirilenko Return vs. Bucks?


It looks like Andrei Kirilenko may finally return to the floor, if he has his way.

The Brooklyn Nets forward, who’s battled back spasms this season he calls the worst of his career, told a fan on Instagram through his account @ak47net that he’d return to the Nets rotation the game after Christmas Day, meaning Friday night’s game against the Milwaukee Bucks:


Kirilenko hasn’t played since an overtime loss against the Washington Wizards on November 8th, returning to practice in the last week. The final call ultimately goes to Nets trainer Tim Walsh, but if Kirilenko’s telling fans he’s ready to go, he most likely means it.
