Jason Kidd's recurring back problems are a growing concern for the Knicks despite Mike Woodson saying on his weekly radio show that he expected the veteran point guard to be available for Wednesday's game against the Orlando Magic.
On Sunday, Kidd played just five minutes in the Knicks' win over the Atlanta Hawks after being limited to just 15 minutes one night earlier in a loss to the Sixers. The Knicks announced at halftime that Kidd would not return against the Hawks and that he was simply being rested.
However, a Knicks source said Kidd received treatment for his back during the game; he left the arena immediately after the game without speaking to reporters.
"He's fine," Woodson said on Sunday. "I just decided to rest him."
