Andrei Kirilenko is done playing in the NBA for the time being, according to Jeff Zillgitt of USA Today.
Kirilenko hadn't played for the Nets since November 14 and his trade to the 76ers doesn't hold much more promise. Kirilenko is likely to be waived by the 76ers and will reportedly take some time away from the NBA. There is a chance he ends up on a team's roster later in the season, but AK-47 can be safely dropped from fantasy rosters. Dec 11 - 10:55 AM

Andrei Kirilenko has been traded to the 76ers.

He is likely to be waived and will likely wind up with another team. Perhaps he heads to Utah or a contender, but obviously teams aren't going to be in hot pursuit of Kirilenko. He can be cut just about everywhere in fantasy leagues.
Dec 10 - 9:16 PM

Andrei Kirilenko (personal) is out for Wednesday's game against the Bulls.

The Nets are in desperate need for bodies with Brook Lopez (back) and Joe Johnson (flu) already ruled out for Wednesday, so it speaks volumes that the Nets aren't willing to use AK-47 no matter what. Kirilenko has seen his name pop up in several trade rumors, but he likely won't have a role wherever he ends up as his glory days are likely gone. Feel free to leave him on the waiver wire.
Dec 10 - 9:58 AM

The Nets have re-engaged in trade talks that would send Andrei Kirilenko and a second-round draft pick to the 76ers.

If this deal gets done, the Sixers would promptly waive Kirilenko, as they're only interested in the draft pick. It will be interesting to see where AK-47 winds up if this deal is completed, as the Clippers and Cavaliers have both expressed interest in adding the veteran swingman. However, he’d likely be constrained to a minimal bench role wherever he lands, so he can remain on the waiver wire in all but the deepest of leagues.
Dec 9 - 4:21 PM

Andrei Kirilenko (personal) will miss Wednesday's game against the Bulls.

There aren't any fantasy implications here as Kirilenko hasn't suited up for the Nets since November 14. While the 33-year-old could be a rotation player for another NBA team, the Nets' unwillingness to use Kirilenko should keep him off fantasy rosters for the time being.
Dec 9 - 1:29 PM

Andrei Kirilenko (personal) sat out of practice again on Sunday.

He is clearly not wanted in Brooklyn, and the Jazz trade rumors don't seem to be going away. Until Kirilenko is back on the court, he won't be worth owning in almost any league.
Dec 7 - 12:24 PM

Andrei Kirilenko could be traded to Utah and the Jazz have discussed it, according to Jody Genessy of the Deseret News.

He was a fantasy star with the Jazz a decade ago and perhaps a move back to Utah would help him. Kirilenko hasn't played since Nov. 13 and is probably done getting playing time with the Nets. There's almost no reason to stash him anywhere right now.
Dec 6 - 5:27 PM

Confirming an earlier report, Andrei Kirilenko returned to Nets practice on Monday.

AK-47 is back with the team, but not much detail was provided other than that and he's unlikely to be traveling with the team for road games due to his personal issue. He's not a fantasy option, and it would be surprising if he suddenly started playing after weeks of inactivity.
Dec 1 - 12:47 PM

In a surprising move, Andrei Kirilenko (personal) is expected to return to Nets practice on Monday, a source tells NetsDaily.

Well then. Kirilenko was thought to be out indefinitely while attending to a family matter (and waiting out a trade), but apparently he'll be back on Monday. That guarantees him absolutely nothing under coach Lionel Hollins, but the Nets are such a mess that Brooklyn may want to see if AK-47 has anything left in the tank.
Dec 1 - 9:22 AM

Andrei Kirilenko and Markel Brown will be inactive for Sunday's game vs. the Bulls.

Neither of these guys should be on a roster in any format as both AK-47 and Brown are completely out of the rotation. Move along, nothing to see here.
Nov 30 - 2:39 PM

Andrei Kirilenko is now unlikely to be traded in the foreseeable future.

He is dealing with some for of family matter in New York and it could keep him in the state until January or February. The report adds that Kirilenko has all the power while the Cavs and Clippers remain interested. He is out of the rotation and is not worth owning in any league.
Nov 29 - 2:21 PM

Andrei Kirilenko is likely to be traded, and a few teams have emerged with some interest.

Philadelphia (of course) is said to be interested if it nets them an extra asset or two in the form of picks, while Cleveland is monitoring Kirilenko and the Jazz may have some interest in a reunion. In the Utah scenario, Kirilenko would be dealt after December 15 for Toure Murry and Jeremy Evans. Regardless of where he's ultimately sent, Kirilenko's days as an impact player are over. He remains away from the team indefinitely.
Nov 24 - 9:25 AM

Andrei Kirilenko still hasn't rejoined the Nets for "personal reasons" and the team is likely to either trade him or waive his contract.

A deal has been discussed with Philadelphia, involving Kirilenko and Sergey Karasev, but that wouldn't happen until Dec. 15 at the earliest. The Sixers' rotations are chaotic enough that AK and Karasev would be unlikely to hold reliable value in standard leagues, assuming they are even dealt to Philly.
Nov 23 - 9:41 AM

The Sixers and Nets have been in talks to make a deal involving Andrei Kirilenko and Sergey Karasev.

Russian owner Mikhail Prokorov is probably not too thrilled about this. Kirilenko's time in Brooklyn is about done and he will likely be waived by the 76ers. He's not really worth owning in any league.
Nov 21 - 4:16 PM

Andrei Kirilenko (personal) is not traveling with the Nets on their current road trip, and head coach Lionel Hollins doesn't know when/if he'll return.

Kirilenko has completely fallen out of the Nets rotation, and sources are saying the situation may not be resolved until he's on another team. AK-47 isn't worth owning in any league, as most of his season averages fall on the right side of the decimal point, and when he's in uniform there's no guarantee he steps on the court. It's looking like he may have played his last game wearing a Brooklyn jersey.
