In a bit of good news, 24 hours after the Nets got devastating news about their All-Start center Brook Lopez, both Andrei Kirilenko and Jason Terry returned to practice today. Kirilenko had told reporters that he was targeting a return "around Christmas time," and it seems as if he might be on pace to play sometime next weekend, if all goes well.
