Injuries sideline Wiz's Butler, Jazz's Kirilenko, Brewer
Kirilenko (calf) missed his second straight game with muscle spasms in his right calf. While the Jazz were also without Brewer (groin), they did get center Mehmet Okur back from a stomach virus.
Butler was coming off his third career triple-double, getting 17 points, 12 rebounds and 12 assists Sunday in a loss to the Lakers in Los Angeles on Sunday, but rested his left hamstring against the Jazz as the Wizards wrapped up a five-game Western Conference road trip.
