  • Kidd to Miss Nets Game With Back Spasms

    Share Zagsblog Share Zagsblog
    BROOKLYN — Knicks starting shooting guard Jason Kidd will miss tonight’s historic first game against his old team, the Nets, in Brooklyn due to back spasms.

    Our man, Tommy Dee of The Knicks Blog, had it at about 6 p.m.

    In typical Knicks style, the team made no pre-game announcement about Kidd’s status.

    Knicks coach Mike Woodson told reporters he didn’t know who he would start, but the team later announced a starting lineup of Raymond Felton, Ronnie Brewer, Carmelo Anthony, Kurt Thomas and Tyson Chandler. 

    “Don’t know who’s going to start,” Woodson said when asked if Kidd would start. “I don’t know if we will have everybody. I’ll know more when I get back in there.”

    Kidd is averaging 8.0 points, 3.4 assists and 3.3 rebounds.
