Back spasms prevented Jason Kidd from playing in the first inter-borough battle last night between the Knicks and Nets at the Barclay’s Center. Kidd, who’s had back issues in the past, didn’t even attend the game. At 39, Kidd is the league’s 3rd oldest player, so this could be just the first of many lingering injuries for the 18-year veteran this season.
According to Newsday:
Jason Kidd didn’t make the trip to Milwaukee.
The lower back spasms that kept him out of Monday’s overtime loss to the Nets will keep him out of tomorrow’s game against the Bucks. The Knicks are listing him as day-to-day.
