Nets expected to be at full strength against the Spurs

Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

Andrei Kirilenko spoke to the media today after practice and said that he'll be ready to play when the Nets take on the San Antonio Spurs on Thursday night.

Kirilenko has missed the team's last three games with a sore right calf, and in that span the Nets went 1-2, with losses to the Thunder and Pacers and the lone win coming against the 76ers on Monday night at home.

Also of note, both Joe Johnson (knee) and Andray Blatche (hip) who sat out Monday night did practice today, and both seem confident that they will be able to play tomorrow night.

Again, the Nets won on Monday night against the 76ers while shorthanded, but with the Spurs in town, they'll need all the bodies they can get in order to knock off the team with the third best record in the NBA.
