Jason Kidd expected to miss week, more with calf strain


Jason Kidd did not play Sunday in the Mavericks overtime win against the Spurs and it may be a week or more before he returns.

Kidd suffered a calf strain and had to leave Friday’s game not to return. Then before Sunday’s game coach Rick Carlisle said he could be out for at least a week, reports the Express-News.

Kidd is among the Mavericks struggling to start the season, shooting just 28.2 percent overall and 25.8 percent from three, giving the Mavs four points a game.

Expect to see more Roddy Beaubois and Delonte West for Dallas, which could be good for them. Both have shown flashes of playing well and now get the chance to prove themselves in a bigger role.
