SAN ANTONIO — Move over, Mehmet Okur and Kyrylo Fesenko.
You're likely not the only Utah Jazz players done for the season.
At practice Friday, Andrei Kirilenko didn't sound too optimistic that he'll play again this season.
"My guess," Kirilenko said, "is I'm done."
Guards Raja Bell and Ronnie Price are running out of time to get healthy for one last hurrah this year as well.
Because of various ailments, none of those five veteran players traveled with the Jazz on their final road trip of the season to the Alamo City and New Orleans.
Kirilenko has gradually increased his activity while trying to nurse the bruised nerve in his knee back to full strength after injuring it at Oklahoma City two weeks ago.
Wednesday's season-finale would be his last chance to don a Jazz uniform this season — and the same goes for Bell and Price, who haven't been officially ruled out of action yet.
Kirilenko isn't sure how much sense it would make to return for just one game, but part of him hopes to play in front of a Jazz crowd in what could be his final game ever with Utah after a 10-year stint in Salt Lake City.
"If it's going to get better, I'll play. Definitely," Kirilenko said. "I don't think (that'll happen), but I'll try to do my best and be healthy. Best thing for me right now is to get my strength back."
The small forward is about to enter the free-agency market, which he hasn't done since entering the NBA. He signed a max deal contract extension worth $86 million with the Jazz six years ago, but that happened at the beginning of the 2004-05 season.
The 30-year-old admits not knowing what the future holds is strange.
"I'm kind of first time in this position. I have always had a contract," he said. "Even the year before I know where I'm going to be next year. This time it's kind of a new experience for me. =85 Even if it's new experience, I'm safe. I know I'm going to play."
Nobody knows that yet.
He continues to talk about his desire to stay put, though. Utah is a second home to the Russian-American citizen.
However, Kirilenko admitted he doesn't know if he's part of the Jazz's restructuring process.
He is curious to see what response he'll get on the market.
"We can talk with the people and see what they thinking about us, what the Jazz thinking. We can kind of decide," Kirilenko said. "Jazz definitely have all of the preferences. I'm living here. My kids (have grown up) here. I've never played anywhere else. I know everybody so well, so many great memories."
Kirilenko cautioned that people shouldn't look too deeply into the fact that his Salt Lake City mansion is on the real-estate market.
"It's common procedure," he said.
That's because two things happen every offseason for the Kirilenkos: They put their multi-millionaire dollar house(s) up for sale and the family heads to southern France.
Kirilenko has previously sold two homes in Salt Lake City.
"Every year when I'm leaving the country I'm trying to sell it," he said. "If it sells, it sells. If not, it (does) not."
DONE DEAL?: Guard Kyle Weaver has been a pleasant surprise since joining the Jazz a week ago out of the D-League. With the team down to only 10 players, including him, it's likely he'll be signed to stay with Utah through the end of the season.25 comments on this story
But because his 10-day contract expires after today's game against San Antonio, the guard said he packed up all of the belongings he brought with him from Austin just in case.
HAPPY HAMMY: Devin Harris had an offensive explosion in his return to the Jazz lineup Thursday after missing the past seven games with a hamstring injury.
Perhaps even better than his 26-point performance?
His healing hammy held up.
"It feels fine, feels good," Harris said.
The Jazz's starting point guard said his hamstring has returned to about 80-90 percent full strength.
