Jason Kidd underwent hip surgery last month, keeping the Bucks coach from the team.

He’s expected to return soon.

Marc Stein of ESPN:

The Bucks have gone 8-7 under Joe Prunty with games in Houston tomorrow and New Orleans Saturday.

But at 19-25, Milwaukee is still 3.5 games and five teams from playoff position. It’ll take impressive work by Kidd to get this team into the postseason.

The big question: How much longer does he want this job before moving into the front office?
