The Deseret News can predict the future? Kirilenko out versus Nets

I'm reading through my Google Reader and find this, (click for bigger picture)

It states that AK will be a game-time decision "tonight" against the Nets.  Except that we don't play the Nets until tomorrow (Wednesday).  So I figured it must have been about the Nets @ Jazz game.  The RSS feed must have wacked out.  But I cclicked on the link and it was no longer there (Update: It's now live again).

But thanks to the miracles on the internet, I was able to get the Google cache,

BOSTON — Sixth man Andrei Kirilenko did not practice when the Jazz worked out Tuesday morning at Emerson College here.

Kirilenko has what the Jazz are calling a "strained upper back muscle."

He is listed as a "game-time decision" for Utah's visit to New Jersey on Wednesday night, which is stop No. 2 in a five-game Eastern road trip.

Kirilenko played 31 minutes off the bench in the Jazz's 100-91 loss at Boston on Monday night, scoring 12 points with 4-of-6 shooting from the field while blocking two shots.

Also today, according to the team, All-Star power forward Carlos Boozer "went through the majority of practice" this morning.

Boozer is being called "doubtful" for Wednesday's game against the Nets.

He has missed 14 straight games due to a strained left quadriceps tendon and bruised kneecap sustained Nov. 19 vs. Milwaukee.

So it's likely that someone pushed the wrong button and it went live.

That's another big blow to the team if AK can't go.

The other big news from this is that Boozer looks like he's still out despite going through a full practice.  He has said that he has other issues besides the strained quad tendon.  I wish he would elaborate.

But maybe this whole thing has been a carefully orchestrated conspiracy by DesNews to run the Jazz season.  Here's the connections,

DesNews -> Owned by the LDS church -> Larry H Miller is LDS -> LHM owns the Jazz.

There you have it.  :)
