Jason Kidd's circus shot that was replayed round the world this weekend had a downside: Kidd hurt his back making it. The latest: the Nets guard will play Tuesday against the Raptors, but it hurt him versus Cleveland. As for Richard Jefferson, he has had a setback dealing with pain in his ankles and may yet require surgery. Meanwhile, Fred Kerber reports Rod Thorn has been the most active GM in trade talks and is willing to deal ANY of his players... the Chicago Tribune says Vince Carter is not being offered.
