NEW YORk (AP) -- Knicks point guard Jason Kidd missed New York's game against the Brooklyn Nets on Monday night because of back spasms.
With Kidd hurting, the Knicks told Kidd not to make the trip to Barclays Center and cause further discomfort during the ride. They planned to start forward Kurt Thomas in a big lineup, moving Ronnie Brewer to the guard spot.
Kidd is averaging 8.0 points and 3.4 assists in his first season with the Knicks.
