SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- The Utah Jazz on Saturday activated All-Star forward Andrei Kirilenko 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 for Utah Saturday.
