DALLAS - Mavericks guard Jason Kidd will be out at least a week because of a strained right calf.

Coach Rick Carlisle said before Sunday night's game against San Antonio that Kidd would be sidelined, and probably longer than a week. The game against the Spurs was the first of five games for Dallas in seven days.

When speaking to reporters at halftime, Kidd said he felt good. He said he continue to do rehabilitation and see how he felt next weekend.

Kidd got hurt playing defence just more than two minutes into Friday's game victory against Utah. He said he tried to plant while trying to draw a charge when he got hurt.

"I felt like I got kicked in the calf," said Kidd, who was told by a Mavericks trainer that nobody had actually hit him. "I'm happy it was just a strain."

Kidd was wearing a sleeve over his right calf while riding a stationary bicycle before Sunday's game.

The 38-year-old Kidd missed four games earlier this month because of a lower back injury. Kidd is averaging 4.1 points and 5.1 assists per game this season.

Kidd said his back was feeling good.
