Jason Kidd’s days as a starter may be over.

Mike Woodson removed the struggling veteran from the starting lineup prior to last night’s 96-88 victory over the Washington Wizards and made Kidd the back-up point guard, the role Kidd expected to play when he signed a three year contract last July.

Woodson did not say the move is permanent but considering that Kidd had scored a total of 30 points in 11 games last month, the Knicks can’t survive without getting more production from the shooting guard position.

“I didn’t come in this league as a scorer,” Kidd joked, “and it doesn’t’ look like I’m going to leave as a scorer.”
