Brooklyn Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov will be in attendance at Thursday’s game against the Atlanta Hawks in London, his spokesperson confirmed.

Prokhorov has not seen the Nets play in person since Nov. 1, when they beat the Miami Heat at Barclays Center.

There has been a lot of turmoil surrounding the team since -- most notably coach Jason Kidd’s decision to re-assign assistant Lawrence Frank to doing “daily reports” and center Brook Lopez's season-ending foot injury -- though Prokhorov has not made any changes.

Coming into the season, Prokhorov had championship expectations for his roster -- which will cost an estimated $190 million between payroll and luxury taxes -- but the Nets (15-22) haven’t come close to meeting them.

Recently, Prokhorov has rarely conducted interviews. He answered a couple questions from the New York Times via e-mail in early December.
