Kidd placed on injured list

East Rutherford, NJ (Sports Network) – The New Jersey Nets placed All-Star
guard Jason Kidd on the injured list Friday as he continues to be hampered by
a bone bruise on his left knee.

Kidd has missed a total of five contests this season, the first on November 22
(sore left knee) and then four straight in early March because of the current
injury.

In 62 games this season, Kidd is averaging 16.0 points, a league-leading 9.5
assists and 6.7 rebounds per contest.

Meanwhile, the club activated swingman Tamar Slay from the injured list. Slay
had been sidelined with a groin injury.
