Bucks Coach Kidd Returns After Missing 17 Games


Jason Kidd spent a lot of time walking the sideline in his first game back as coach of Milwaukee. It wasn’t because he didn’t like what he saw, but more because of orders from his doctor.

The Bucks gave Kidd a 107-100 victory on Tuesday night over the Orlando Magic in his first game back after having surgery on his right hip Dec. 21. He missed 17 games. “I was told not to sit long, so I had to get up and try to get in shape,” said Kidd, who added that he felt great and would travel with the team to Memphis for its next game.
