Jason Kidd – Back Injury

Jason Kidd will miss Wednesday’s game with a back injury, which the Knicks have described as back spasms.

Fantasy Analysis – Kidd also missed his last game and the Knicks compensated by moving Carmelo Anthony to Small Forward and starting Kurt Thomas at power forward.  They will likely roll out that same lineup tonight at Milwaukee.  Kidd could likely return Friday against the Wizards, but check it just to make sure.

If you are thinking about starting Kurt Thomas, don’t.  He started the last game for the Knicks, but only played 8 minutes.  J. R. Smith (41 minutes) and Rasheed Wallace (23 minutes) were the primary beneficiaries of Kidd’s absence.
