New York Knicks point guard Raymond Felton tweaked his ankle toward the end of the third quarter during the team’s recent blowout win over the Indiana Pacers, according to Tony Williams of The Star-Ledger. While Felton was seen limping around the locker room after the game, he told reporters that he was “fine” and will “definitely” be ready for Game 3.Felton was removed after suffering his injury, but following the game coach Mike Woodson told reporters that this was done more as a precaution considering the Knicks were pulling away from the Pacers. He added that he didn’t want to take any chances with Felton, considering the point guard’s importance to the team."Raymond is a big piece of the puzzle. He runs that pick-and-roll great, especially if everybody runs it right and separates correctly [because] then somebody's always gonna be open." Woodson said. "When the ball is not stopped, any number of guys have an opportunity to be a part of the play and be a playmaker and either score or pass it. ... We're not the only team that runs it. There's a number of teams in our league that run it, but it has been a successful play for us throughout the season and Raymond is the reason why."Felton will have several days to rest his ankle, as the Knicks and Pacers don’t resume the series until Saturday. Considering the way he and Woodson are talking about the ankle, he would appear likely to suit up this weekend.Follow @hoopsinjurynews
