Mavs' Kidd out at least 3 games with back injury

Dallas Mavericks guard Jason Kidd will miss at
least the next three games because of a lower back injury.
Kidd was sidelined for Saturday night's game against New
Orleans, and coach Rick Carlisle said the guard also won't play
when the Mavericks hit the road on consecutive nights against
Detroit and Boston next week.
Carlisle says the team will re-evaluate where Kidd is after
that. The coach says the injury isn't thought to be serious but
that the team "will err on the side of caution" with the
38-year-old Kidd.
Kidd, who left late in the first quarter of Thursday night's
loss at San Antonio, is receiving treatment and Carlisle says he's
doing better every day.
