No Andrei Kirilenko for Jazz in game 2

May 4, 2010, 6:59 PM EDT

Andrei Kirilenko’s calf could be a deciding factor in the Lakers/Jazz second round series… and it’s still not right.

Kirilenko will not suit up for game two tonight in Staples Center. He told the Salt Lake Tribune’s Ross Siler and others he might be ready for game three. Maybe. But Kirilenko thought he would be ready for game six of last series, he tends to be a bit optimistic about these things.

The Jazz need him. They are undermanned against the long and active front lone of the Lakers. Kirilenko would start to balance the scales.

But not until his calf lets him.
