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.
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 returned to New York to consult with a hand specialist Thursday where it was determined that surgery will not be needed, but he will wear a splint to stabilize his finger.
