PORTLAND, Ore. -- Utah Jazz forward Andrei Kirilenko did not
travel with the team for Saturday night's game against the
Portland Trail Blazers because of lower back inflammation.

Utah coach Jerry Sloan gave no timetable for Kirilenko's return.

"For what we know, the tests have been OK, so we'll just have
to go from there," Sloan said.

Kirilenko is averaging 11.5 points, six rebounds and 4.8 assists
for the Jazz this season.
