Kevin Garnett out for his fifth straight game; Mason Plumlee will start in his place

Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports

Jason Kidd announced before tonight's game against the Sacramento Kings that Kevin Garnett will miss his fifth straight game due to back spasms.

Kidd said that he wasn't concerned about KG's back and that "he looked good today." Mason Plumlee will start in Garnett's place once again tonight. Kidd thinks that the Nets are fine without Garnett and that the Nets have actually improved with him out of the lineup.

The Nets have three important games this week: the Raptors, Heat, and Wizards are all on tap; the team can use Garnett as healthy as possible for those three contests.
