Andre Kirilenko out at least two weeks, Jazz suddenly flat

Pretty soon the Jazz may just hold an open casting call for power forwards.

We talked about the already injury-filled battle at the four between Carlos Boozer and Kenyon Martin, but the Jazz had a secret weapon — an AK-47. Andre Kirilenko.

Well, we thought they had one.

David Locke of KFAN in Salt Lake City has tweeted that Kirilenko will be out at least a couple weeks with a strained calf, which means the entire first round.

A Kirilenko is out at least two weeks. Strained calf for third time in workout yesterday. New spot same calf

Bad, bad news for the Jazz. This is a tight series and without the AK-47 wildcard, Denver is suddenly looking like they have the leg up. So to speak.

    WHAT A BUNCH OF CRAP. IF THESE GUYS WOULD WORK OUT ON A REGULAR BASIS LIKE MALONE AND STOCKDON DID MAYBE THEY WOULDN’T GET HURT AS OFTEN. IT SEEMS LIKE EVERYTIME YOU TURN AROUND KIRILENKO IS OUT WITH SOME TYPE OF MUSCLE PROBLEM.
    SUCK IT UP JAZZ AND PLAY BALL.
