Andrei Kirilenko out at least two more games

By Matt Moore | NBA writer

Here's a shocker: A Timberwolf will miss some time!

Andrei Kirilenko, the latest in a brutally long list of Minnesota players to miss games with injuries, is not expected to travel with the team on its upcoming two-game road trip as he continues to recover from back spasms.

Kirilenko is averaged 13 points and 7.8 rebounds per game this season and has anchored Minnesota's defense and offense as its most consistent player. As the Wolves try to get themselves healthy so they can then get right, they'll need Kirilenko healthy.
