The Utah Jazz activated All-Star forward Andrei Kirilenko on Saturday for their game against the Memphis Grizzlies.
Kirilenko missed the last 26 games after injuring his knee in a collision during a game at San Antonio on Nov. 27. The Jazz were struggling already
when Kirilenko sprained a ligament in his right knee, and things only got worse without him.
Utah went 6-20 during Kirilenko's hiatus.
Kirilenko has played in just 14 games this season, averaging 14.8 points, 7.2 rebounds and 2.4 blocked shots per game.
Guard Kirk Snyder, who has a left knee injury, was placed on the injured list to make room for Kirilenko.
