Andrei Kirilenko practices but unlikely for Cavaliers

Brooklyn Nets/Ben Couch

Andrei Kirilenko was all-in Tuesday, going hard in a 5-on-5 practice, but afterwards, AK-47 said that while he's traveling to Cleveland, he's unlikely to play before the Nets home opener vs. the Heat Friday.

Other than Shaun Livingston, who's nursing a sore neck, all the Nets were on the court Tuesday, apparently including Toko Shengelia. As the Nets prepared for their quick trip to Ohio, Kirilenko and Kevin Garnett gave their assessment of the team, remarking on what they say is extraordinary chemistry.

However, Garnett did reveal a potential conflict that's been brewing between him and Brook Lopez

Monday, the Nets listed both Kirilenko and Shengelia as inactive for the opener.  One point still not confirmed: whether Lawrence Frank will take Jason Kidd's place as head coach.
