Mavericks Will Be Without Kidd for At Least a Week

Jason Kidd is getting, scratch that Jason Kidd is old and when you’re old you tend to get hurt a lot. Kidd is being sidelined with a strained right calf for at least a week. However, Coach Rick Carlisle seems to think it will be a little longer than a week.

The injury occurred during Friday’s game against the Utah Jazz. Kidd was playing defense just 2 minutes into the game when he tried to plant while trying to draw a charge. “I felt like I got kicked in the calf.” Kidd said. He actually had to be informed by a trainer that no one actually hit him in the leg. Kidd also said that he was happy that it was “just a strain.”

Remember Kidd has already missed four games earlier this month due to a lower back injury. Is this a sign, perhaps? Will he even make it through the season? Only time will tell. It’s not just Kidd who has faced a lot of injuries this season, though. It seems like a lot of players are not properly conditioned because of the shortened season. Dirk Nowitzki just came back from taking four games off to work on his sore right knee.

It’ll be interesting to see if the players get stronger throughout the season, or if they will continue to get these nagging little injuries. Will there be anyone standing in the playoffs? Will Lebron and Wade be able to crawl their way to the championship? We’ll find out soon enough.

Tiger Woods had emergency plastic surgery after Elin took up golfing on his face


Tiger Woods has been in hiding since wife Elin Nordegren belted him in the face with a nine-iron five weeks ago and forced him to undergo emergency plastic surgery, a report claims.

Furman Bisher, who has been described as America’s top golf writer, claims Nordegren attacked Woods moments before his infamous late-night crash after allegedly catching him texting mistress Rachel Uchitel.

According to Bisher, Woods has not made a public appearance since the scandal broke in an attempt to conceal the attack.

The sportswriter alleges Nordegren broke Woods’s cheekbone and almost knocked out two of his teeth.

“At one point Tiger turned away to look at the TV, and as he turned back, Elin hit him on the right side of the face with the head of a 9-iron,” Bisher wrote on his blog.

“Tiger ran scared as hell out of the house (which is why he had on no shoes) with Elin swinging the golf club throughout the hallway to the garage.”

Nordegren then allegedly chased Woods and knocked out the windows of his car.

Bisher claims that following the crash Woods spent a brief time in a hospital before flying by private jet to Pheonix, Arizona, where he met cosmetic surgeons.

The golfer underwent procedures to fix his cheek and teeth, he said.

Bisher said he was making the claims to “present the picture in its clearest form”.

His allegations have not been verified by Woods’ spokesperson or the police.
