Knicks point guard Jason Kidd and Magic swingman Aaron Afflalo are both sidelined for Wednesday night’s game between New York and Orlando because of injuries.

Kidd, who sat out the second half of Sunday’s win over Atlanta, was again out with a sore lower back.

Coach Mike Woodson said Kidd may have tweaked his back playing extended minutes with starting point guard Raymond Felton out recently. An 18-year veteran, Kidd has averaged 28.5 minutes this season - roughly three to five minutes more than Woodson wants.

Afflalo, who leads the Magic with 16.7 points per game, missed his second straight game with a strained left calf.
