Malone is expected to miss Sunday's game at home against New Jersey, and Monday's against his former Jazz teammates at Utah. He will make the trip to Utah, but said he didn't want to get into the game unless he played at least 15 minutes or so, which seems unlikely. "The most important thing is to be all the way back," he said. Jackson said Malone's not ready to play yet. Malone tore a ligament in his right knee Dec. 21 and landed on the injured list for the first time in his career.

Kidd-Injury Status: Knee; Questionable for March 6 at L.A. Lakers
Hopefully he doesn't play, that would really increase our chances of winning and it would allow GP to have a big game.

Kidd Is Expected to Play; Bryant May Miss Month
The network did not get much information out of the Nets, but ABC officials can relax. Even though the team lists his fate as a game-time decision, Kidd worked out with the team at practice Saturday and will most likely play against the Lakers on Sunday afternoon.
"But that's not guaranteed," said Kidd, who missed the first three games of the Nets' West Coast trip with a bruised left knee. He said he felt better and would see how he felt Sunday before deciding.
