Jason Kidd Injury: Guard Leaves Game With Calf Strain, Will Not Return

The Dallas Mavericks have had a revolving door of players getting injured, and in tonight's game against the Utah Jazz guard Jason Kidd suffered a calf strain to his right leg in the first quarter. Kidd came up limp just over two minutes into the game and was taken to the locker room, and after being examined it was decided that he would not return.

This is the second injury that Kidd has suffered this year. On Jan. 6 against the San Antonio Spurs, Kidd left that game with an injured lower back and ended up missing four games due to that injury.

The Mavericks are already missing Dirk Nowitzki who is out trying to regain his stamina and Delonte West who sitting out tonight's game with a hamstring injury. So far tonight the Mavericks have not needed those players as they are leading the Jazz 58-50 at the half.
