AUBURN HILLS, Mich. (AP) — Detroit’s Rodney Stuckey and Charlie Villanueva missed Tuesday night’s game against Dallas with injuries.
Jason Kidd was out for the Mavericks, missing his second consecutive game with a lower back problem. Dallas coach Rick Carlisle has said the 38-year-old guard isn’t likely to play Wednesday night at Boston either.
Stuckey has a sore groin and hasn’t played since last Wednesday. Villanueva has a sore right ankle and has played six minutes all season.
