EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- All-Star point guard Jason Kidd is making progress in his recovery from knee surgery, but the New Jersey Nets said Wednesday
there is no timetable for his return.
Kidd had his left knee re-evaluated Wednesday by the Nets' medical staff in consultation with Dr. David Altchek of the Hospital for Special Surgery in
The team said his rehabilitation is proceeding on schedule.
Altchek performed micro-fracture surgery on Kidd's knee July 1.
Kidd seemingly is in no rush to return to the court. The summer trades of Kenyon Martin and Kerry Kittles, the release of backup shooting guard
Lucious Harris and the decision by Rodney Rogers to opt out of his contract have turned the Nets from a contender to an also-ran.
Earlier this week, Kidd said he dreamed of being traded, but he said he hasn't asked to be sent elsewhere.
Kidd intends to be cautious in his recovery.
A likely scenario would have Kidd returning sometime before the Feb. 24 trade deadline, giving other teams an opportunity to gauge whether one of the
game's best point guards is still capable of playing at his usual level under a contract that will pay him $90 million over the next five years.
