After missing Raymond Felton since Christmas Day, the New York Knicks appear to be inching closer to getting their starting point guard back in uniform.
According to ESPN NY's Jared Zwerling, Felton is optimistic that he'll be able to return Saturday against the Philadelphia 76ers. Here's Felton's quote after Tuesday's Knicks practice:
Big chance, big chance, but I can't speak on that. That's not my decision to make...If it's up to me, I'd play in Boston, but they're not going to let me do it because there's a possible chance if I break it again, I'll be out two months because they're going to have to go in and have surgery on it. So it's tough.
According to the report, Felton participated in shooting drills and conditioning on Tuesday—with just a wrap on his pinkie finger. It's encouraging news for both the Knicks and Felton, since the team has missed his playmaking ability for about a month now.
Felton also noted that even though it's just his pinkie out of place, it's a tough injury to overcome:
Everybody looks at it as a little pinkie, all that, he shouldn't be out, but I fractured that pinkie in three places.
