Andrei Kirilenko 'hopes to play' around Christmas time

Rob Carr

Andrei Kirilenko told the media prior to the start of the Nets game against the 76ers that he is hoping to return to action sometime around Christmas. Kirilenko hasn't played since November 8, due to back spasms.

Kirilenko, who signed with the Nets in the offseason has played in just four games this season. He's averaging 5.8 points and 3.3 rebounds in 13-plus minutes per game.
