Kirilenko leaves game with calf strain
FEB 26, 2013 8:32p ET
Before exiting the game, the forward had played 10 minutes, racking up a steal, an assist and two rebounds. He had not attempted a shot.
This will be Kirilenko's third minor injury this season. He missed four games in late November and early December with back spasms, and he sat for the five games preceding the All-Star break with a left quad strain. Without Kirilenko and in games he's left due to injury (before Tuesday, that is), Minnesota is 3-7.
By late in the second quarter, the team had not yet offered a prognosis on his injury, and one is unlikely to come until after the game. The Timberwolves play Thursday in Los Angeles against the Lakers and Saturday in Portland before returning home to face Miami on Monday.
