Jason Kidd says Kevin Garnett ‘probably’ won’t play in back-to-backs

The Nets bolstered their starting lineup this summer by gutting a rebuilding Celtics team and adding Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett to fill out what should be one of the most formidable starting lineups in all of basketball next season.

Age is a legitimate concern, however, as Pierce is 35 and Garnett is 37.

The regular season is a long grind for veteran players, and making sure that the team is as close to full strength as possible for the playoffs is an important part of managing the team throughout the year.

It’s not surprising, then, that first time head coach Jason Kidd is already having discussions about resting one of his new key players.
