Raymond Felton Out 4-6 Weeks, But Won’t Need Surgery

by December 28, 2012

According to the New York Knicks, point guard Raymond Felton doesn’t need to go under the knife for his fractured right pinkie finger. But he won’t be hooping for a while either — Felton will be out of action for the next 4-6 weeks. Per the NY Post: “The Knicks announced tonight Raymond Felton won’t need surgery on his fractured right pinkie but will be out four to six weeks as expected. Felton returned to New York today to consult with a hand specialist and instead of surgery, Felton will be in a splint to stabilize the finger. The Knicks called the injury a ‘complex’ fracture. Felton said last night surgery was a possibility but expected to miss about 4 to 6 weeks. He broke his pinkie on Christmas when he fought for a loose ball with Steve Nash and the ball caromed off his hand. Jason Kidd will become the starting point guard, moving over from shooting guard.”
