Markel Brown (hip pointer) and Andrei Kirilenko (personal) will not travel to Philadelphia with the Nets.

Neither was at practice Tuesday and neither was expected to make the road trip anyway. Brown's absence is injury-related but Kirilenko is currently at odds with coaches and management and should be given his walking papers soon enough.

Markel Brown (right hip pointer) and Andrei Kirilenko (personal reasons) did not practice on Tuesday.

Kirilenko is on the trading block for Brooklyn with suitors in Philadelphia, Cleveland and the Jazz. In the Utah scenario, Kirilenko would be dealt after December 15 for Toure Murry and Jeremy Evans. The long and the short of it is that Kirilenko's days as an impact player are over. He remains away from the team indefinitely.

Andrei Kirilenko (personal) did not practice on Monday.

Kirilenko hasn't appeared in any of the last five games and his minutes have been dramatically reduced when he has played. He has made his displeasure with coach Lionel Hoillins publicly known and the team has openly discussed trading the veteran forward. He is currently away from the team, so don;t expect a return to the floor anytime soon.

Markel Brown (right hip pointer) did not practice on Monday.

Brown suffered the injury over the weekend, but he is so buried down the depth chart that fantasy owners need not be remotely concerned.

Joe Johnson scored 12 points (5-16 FGA) going 2-for-7 from three-point range with four rebounds, five assists and one block in the Nets' 99-87 loss to the Spurs on Saturday.

Johnson had a rather quiet night from the field, converting only 31.3 percent of his field goal attempts finishing with just 12 points in the Nets' fourth loss in five games. However, he is now shooting 45.6 percent from the field and 38.6 percent from behind the three-point line on the season which has resulted in a solid start for the veteran shooting guard.

Deron Williams scored 24 points (10-21 FGA, 2-2 FTA) going 2-for-4 from three-point range with five rebounds, seven assists, two steals and two blocks in the Nets' 99-87 loss to the Spurs on Saturday.

Williams is now averaging 18.1 points, 3.3 rebounds and 6.3 assists while shooting 46.0 percent from the field and 36.5 percent from downtown through his first 12 games. As long as he can continue to stay off the trainer's table there is no reason to think he can't continue to be one of the top fantasy players the rest of the season.

Mirza Teletovic scored 22 points (8-14 FGA, 2-2 FTA) going 4-for-8 from three-point range with eight rebounds and one assist in the Nets' 99-87 loss to the Spurs on Saturday.

Teletovic received increased playing time as he was moved to the starting lineup in place of Kevin Garnett on Saturday to give the veteran big man some additional rest. Unless his minutes increase in the near future, his fantasy value is going to remain limited as the season progresses.

Update: Kevin Garnett will not play on Saturday. Mirza Teletovic will get the start.

The veteran Garnett will get his first day off this season to rest, and Mirza Teletovic will receive the start.
