Brooklyn Nets coach Jason Kidd has discussed the possibility of power forward Kevin Garnett not playing in both games of back-to-back sets this season.

"When you look at KG probably no back-to-backs but those are just topics right now that are being thrown around" Kidd said Friday.

The Nets will play 20 sets of back-to-back games. Garnett is 37 and the Nets want to make sure their newly acquired veteran stays healthy throughout the regular season.

Brooklyn has plenty of depth behind Garnett with newcomer Andrei Kirilenko who can start along with Reggie Evans and Andray Blatche.
