When asked about Andrei Kirilenko's status and potential return, Jason Kidd claimed there was no news.

"There is no update," Kidd said. "Hopefully, sometime in 2013 would be great. But if he comes back in 2014, that would be fine, too."

Kirilenko has missed 18 straight games because of back issues.

Asked if he will return to the Brooklyn Nets soon, Kirilenko said, "I hope so.''
