Andrei Kirlenko Will Not Travel to the West Coast
Posted By Sports Talk Florida News Desk On November 12, 2013 @ 12:56 PM In NBA | No Comments
The Brooklyn Nets, stumbling and struggling at 2-4, have a three-game West Coast road trip coming up. But as much as they’ve been struggling, they have even more challenges ahead as reserve forward Andrei Kirilenko will miss the entire trip with his sore back that has limited him this season.
Kirilenko has been a disaster this year due to the injury. He’s averaging six points and three rebounds on 42 percent shooting, and the Nets have been outscored by 6.4 points per 48 minutes with him on the floor. Defense was the biggest reason Kirilenko was brought on board, but with him on the floor, opponents have scored an insane 1.15 points per possession.
