The Brooklyn Nets had Jason Terry and Andrei Kirilenko back on the court this afternoon. Well, sort of. Kirilenko, who has played in just four games this season due to back spasms, went through some non-contact drills at practice today. Terry, who has hasn't played in nearly a month -- out since November 20 -- due to a knee injury, also went through some non-contact drills today.

Kirilenko said earlier in the week that he was targeting a return to action -- more likely practice, not a game -- sometime around Christmas. As for Terry, we don't have any firm update other than the report that he was a week or two away, again, earlier this week.

One other note, Joe Johnson was not with the team today due to "personal reasons."

He is expected to play tomorrow, which will be helpful as the Nets take on a Philadelphia 76ers team that is expected to have Michael Carter-Williams back in the lineup.

Meanwhile, Devin Kharpertian believes Deron Williams and Kevin Garnett have been hinting that Paul Pierce held back on early season injuries.
