SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -Utah Jazz forward Andrei Kirilenko missed practice Thursday because of a problem with his visa, a day before Utah hosts the Los Angeles Lakers in Game 6 of the Western Conference semifinals.
A Jazz spokesman says the Russian was absent because he was resolving a visa issue. No other details were immediately available.
The Jazz returned to Utah early Thursday after a 111-104 loss in Los Angeles, putting the Lakers up 3-2 in the series.
