Agent Marc Fleisher speaks Monday about former Jazz forward Andrei Kirilenko's recent injury.

Fleisher on what he knows about Kirilenko's injury and whether he received a concussion, which some media outlets reported: "I talked to him about 45 minutes after it happened. He told me he did not suffer a concussion. He said he broke his nose and had some bruises. … He said to me he was feeling fine the next day and they'd given him a nose job later that day. He said that hurt a little bit, but he expected that he probably would not miss any games. … I don't know how many days they'll tell him that he has to protect the nose. He's playing his butt off. He's really playing good."Brian T. SmithTwitter: @tribjazzbsmith@sltrib.comfacebook.com/tribjazz
