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

Miller recently was released from the hospital after a 59-day stay after suffering from a heart attack, 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.
