    Felton out 4-6 weeks and update, no surgery

    From ESPN

    Raymond Felton may need surgery

    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 4 to 6 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. The next course of action will be determined after his return to New York.

    "I may need surgery," Felton told reporters, according to the New York Post. "I got to do what's best for my hand so I can get back and help this team."

    Wednesday's game against the Suns was Felton's first missed game of the season. Jason Kidd started in Felton's absence and scored 23 points with eight assists and six rebounds in 31 minutes. The 39-year-old veteran made five of his eight 3-point attempts.

    The Knicks improved to 21-8 with their 99-97 victory at Phoenix.

    "We just have to go back and assess it and see where we are and go from there, but again, like I said, injuries occur," Knicks coach Mike Woodson said. "Key guys get banged up here and there and we have enough guys on our team that guys just got to step up and play until guys get back. That's how it's got to be."

    Felton, 28, is averaging 15.8 points (second on the team) and leads the Knicks with 6.3 assists per game.

    I'm with you Flimflamman. The guy is a bulldog and has played through two bruised hands and broken fingers. He has to attempt those open shots even if he misses because he was hitting them early and has to keep the defense honest. It's like a boxer that breaks his hand during a fight that keeps fighting. Get well Ray.

    I think we'll be fine, he will be missed, but we have experienced PGs.

    Felton is NOT out 4-6 weeks. The title of this thread is very misleading. Felton MAY be out 4-6 weeks if he requires surgery. Its still up in the air. He is meeting with doctors in NY today to determine his course of action (surgery vs rest & treatment)

    We'll see for sure soon I guess.

    I figured. I changed it for the time being before people press that panic button.

    "Knicks weren't ready to give any timetable on Felton's fractured pinkie but intrepid reporter Roger Rubin got it
    out of the Knicks point guard late in our interview, around midnight in the East. After Felton said he wasn't sure how long he'd miss, Roger tossed out the question: "Could this be season-ending?'' Felton bit, said no way, he's been told 4-to-6 weeks, presumably after surgery. Knicks PR quickly broke up the scrum. Knicks officially said Felton will meet with a hand specialist to determine the next step. Jason Kidd was in good spirits after." -Berman of the Post-

    Whatever course of action helps Felton get fully healed is what the Knicks should pursue, if that is surgery then so be it. I don't want to see a hurt Felton out there hurting the team.

    I think its best for him and our team to have the surgery. It sucks but I think we can deal with it and just hope for the best.

    Good teams play good through injuries which is what we've been doing all year. As long as we're full strength come April.

    Exactly, PG is the one spot we can afford an injury. Lets not pretend like he wasn't hurting us big time this month anyway. Maybe some time off will allow him to heal and get him to play like he did in November.

    I wonder who Woodson wants to start at the 2 now? I doubt we can start Kidd and Pablo.

    I bet J.R. gets shifted to the starting unit and Pablo becomes the backup point off the bench. I'd be pretty interested to see how that works actually.
