Kidd out vs. Magic with sore back

GREENBURGH, N.Y. -- Knicks point guard Jason Kidd will sit out of Wednesday night's game against the Orlando Magic with a sore lower back.

Mike Woodson said Kidd's back is "just sore" and that, if needed, the 39-year-old point guard could play against Orlando.

"We're being cautious and we're just taking it a day at a time," Woodson said.

Kidd's lower back has flared up in recent days. He sat out of the Knicks' optional practice last Friday after feeling soreness following a win in Boston the previous day. He also left the bench in the second half of weekend games against Philadelphia and Atlanta to get treatment and rest his back.
