BEIJING — Russian basketball standout Andrei Kirilenko has had the Utah Jazz on his mind lately =AD more specifically, Jazz owner Larry H. Miller.

Miller recently was released from the hospital after a 59-day stay following a heart attack and battling kidney failure and gastrointestinal bleeding.

"I want to wish Larry to stay healthy," said Kirilenko. "I heard the things that were going on. We'll keep praying for him.

"We need him, we need him. He's the biggest fan. He's a great man, a great person."
