Andrei Kirilenko did not practice, will not play against the Celtics

Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports

Reports out of Nets practice today are that Deron Williams (ankle) was limited and Andrei Kirilenko (back) was held out and will not play on Wednesday against the Boston Celtics, the second to last preseason game for the Nets.

This will be the 4th straight DNP for Kirilenko, who continues to struggle with back spasms.

Brooklyn will be without Williams, Kirilenko, Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett when they suit up against the Celtics on Wednesday. They have yet to see their full, healthy starting lineup during the preseason, and there are already rumblings that Williams will not be ready by opening night. As noted, Kidd said he hopes Kirilenko will be back in uniform for practices between the Miami preseason game and Opening Night in Cleveland.
