Jason Kidd Injury: Dallas Point Guard Doubtful To Return With Lower Back Injury

The Dallas Mavericks got off to a slow start in their match up with the San Antonio Spurs and things could be getting worse after point guard Jason Kidd left the game with a lower back injury. Kidd is doubtful to return to the game.

Kidd handed out three assists in 10 minutes before exiting the game. He is off to a slow start this season averaging 5.6 points, 4.7 assists and 4.0 rebounds per game. Vince Carter subbed in for Kidd with Jason Terry sliding over to the point guard position. Rodrigue Beaubois and Delonte West would also be other options for the Mavericks at point guard if Kidd is unable to return.

Lamar Odom On Recent Performance: 'Still Ugly'

After getting off to a slow start in Dallas, Lamar Odom had his best performance of the season against Phoenix, scoring 15 points on 6-12 shooting and grabbing 5 rebounds.

However, last season's Sixth Man of the Year in LA is still not entirely satisfied with his play for the Mavericks:

"This is still ugly for me," Odom said after his 15-point, five-rebound, two-steal night in the Mavs’ 98-89 win Wednesday over the Suns. "I’m used to really playing at a high level. I could really help this team. There are so many plays, so many plays, basketball plays. I’ll just keep working and working and working until I get to that level that I’m used to playing at."

After starting off the season as a back-up power forward and center, which was his role for the Lakers, Odom has found more success recently playing as a small forward as a part of a super-sized front-line next to two 6'11+ players in Ian Mahinmi and Dirk.

That group was on the floor for Dallas' 12-1 run in the fourth-quarter of the Suns game.

Defensively, Mahinmi's foot-speed allows Dallas to live with the dribble penetration the two 30-something forwards allow, while Odom's size at 6'10 is a valuable weapon at the small forward position.
