Utah forward Andrei Kirilenko missed his third straight game on Sunday because of inflammation and irritation on a bone spot in his right foot.
He suffered from the same ailment in December, and was hoping to postpone surgery until the offseason.
"There is a possibility," Kirilenko said Sunday night about undergoing surgery now.
"We'll see ... but it doesn't feel any better," he said. "It just feels same way, you know. It feels sore. We'll see what the doctors say."
