Dallas Mavericks point guard Jason Kidd will be sidelined for at least a week with a strained calf sustained Friday night, according to ESPNDallas.com.

"It's not real serious, but it's going to take a while," coach Rick Carlisle said Sunday, according to ESPN. "We're going to say that it's going to be at least a week and it's probably going to be longer."

Kidd, 38, has already missed three times more games this season due to injury than he did last year.

"He's been so consistent just being out there on the floor," Carlisle said. "Really, I don't remember him sitting a game for injury since I've been here. We've rested him a couple of times, but it may have been a couple things where he was banged up slightly." Kidd is averaging just 4.1 points and 5.1 assists for the struggling Mavericks this season.
