Former Jazz forward Andrei Kirilenko broke his nose and injured his left shoulder Saturday during a CSKA Moscow game.

CSKA's website said a postgame medical examination by doctors "did not reveal a concussion." However, Kirilenko will undergo additional tests during the next few days, with "special attention" paid to his shoulder.

Kirilenko has excelled while playing overseas during the NBA lockout and was recently named weekly MVP of the Euroleague.

The longtime Jazz player will be an unrestricted free agent when the NBA's work stoppage ends.Brian T. SmithTwitter: @tribjazzbsmith@sltrib.comfacebook.com/tribjazz
