The New Zealand Breakers will finally get to welcome back shooting guard Kirk Penney after a nine game injury absence, when they host the Cairns Taipans in their Australian basketball leauge match on Thursday night.

Penney's been out with a back injury and says it's been frustrating not being able to play but now feels fully fit.

This week's match will also feature former Breaker and Tall Black Phill Jones, who'll be leading the Cairns side.
