Nets to have full squad for Spurs showdown; Spurs shorthanded

Updated: February 5, 2014



The Brooklyn Nets were once again hit with the injury bug in the past week with Andrei Kirilenko (sore calf), Andray Blatche (sore hip), and Joe Johnson (knee tendinitis) all missing time the past three games.

Reports out of the Nets camp today have all three players planning on playing Thursday which would give Brooklyn a full compliment of players to take one of the West’s top teams in San Antonio.

Kirilenko’s absence has been a huge hit to the Nets defensive intensity in the last three games and Blatche’s offensive bench production has really hurt so if they can come back strong on Thursday they should have a great shot at beating their nemesis.



The Spurs won a double-overtime game in Washington last night and Tony Parker left early with a back issue so it is likely he wont play tonight in Brooklyn.

San Antonio is already without Kwahi Leonard and Manu Ginobili so not having Parker will really hurt.
