Andrei Kirilenko has missed 17 games this season for the Brooklyn Nets, and as of now, he doesn't seem all that close to returning. Before Thursday night's game against the Clippers, Kirilenko told Devin Kharpertian of The Brooklyn Game that he is at least "10 days" away from returning. Of course that isn't a concrete timetable, with Kirilenko then saying that he doesn't know if he'll play after 10 days, but they'll "reevaluate" the situation then. Jason Kidd was no more optimistic about Kirilenko's return, saying before the game that he had "no update" on his injury and that he may return...

OKLAHOMA CITY -- It was a bit of an incongruent scene at the Los Angeles Lakers practice facility Thursday as coach Mike D'Antoni lamented his team's lack of any healthy point guards while Jordan Farmar simultaneously shot swish after swish on the court behind him. While Steve Blake (elbow) will be out at least six weeks and Steve Nash (nerve root irritation) doesn't even have a timetable of when he could get back to game action, Farmar's return could be just around the corner.

Beasley was unable to fully participate in practice this morning, the second day in a row, and will miss his fourth straight game when the Heat host Cleveland on Saturday (7:30 p.m., Sun Sports). “I’m not doing anything except lifting weights and cardio,” he said today. “I shoot a little bit– Not a little bit. I shoot probably more than I’m supposed to. Nothing’s gonna change in that aspect. I just can’t run up and down. I just don’t want to strain it or irritate...
