Shaun Livingston a Game Time Decision, but will likely play, Kirilenko out

Howard Smith-USA TODAY Sports

The Nets game notes say that Shaun Livingston is a game time decision for the team's game against the Pacers tonight with a sprained left ankle. Livingston has been a huge boost off the bench for Brooklyn this season, averaging 6.8 points per game and 3 assists while shooting 56% from the floor in 20 minutes per game. He has also taken some weight off of Deron Williams, who has been a little slow to get back to full speed following his ankle injury.

Livingston said that he will have no issues, and he just "tweaked it last night."

Livingston is the only one on the injury report, but Andrei Kirilenko has been ruled out as he deals with his back spasms. Toko Sheneglia has been called back up to the Nets after spending the past several days with the Armor.

Kirilenko is the only Net ruled out, so it looks as if Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce will play. Jason Kidd was adamant on sitting KG in back-to-back games this season, this of course being the Nets second game in as many nights.

For the Pacers, Danny Granger is the only one on their injury report, he is still suffering from a strained left calf. George Hill, who returned last night against the Raptors, is expected to start.
