New York Knicks point guard Raymond Felton said Wednesday night that he expects to miss four to six weeks with a fractured finger, but he stressed the injury won’t end his season.
“This is not a season-ending injury,” Felton told reporters in Phoenix, according to Newsday. “It’s something that will last four to six weeks at the most.”
Felton broke his right pinkie finger in the third quarter of the Knicks’ loss to the Lakers on Christmas Day when he and Steve Nash dived for a loose ball. X-rays on Felton’s right fifth finger revealed the fracture. Felton won’t be accompanying the team to Sacramento for their Friday night game against the Kings. He’s flying back to New York City on Thursday to see a doctor to determine if surgery is required.
