New York Knicks Raymond Felton Says Ankle Is Fine; Starting Game 3

New York Knicks point guard Raymond Felton suffered a “twisted” ankle in Game 2 of their playoff series against the Indiana Pacers but it appears the hefty point will be just fine for Game 3, this despite missing yesterday’s practice. The missed practice was for “personal reasons” though there have been suggestions saying Felton wouldn’t have been able to practice even if he attempted to do so.

Thankfully though, all looks okay on the injury front as according to Ian Begley, Felton says he is “totally fine” and that his ankle is “100%”:

Raymond Felton says his left ankle, which he twisted in Game 2, is “totally fine” and he’s 100 percent healthy for Game 3

Felton had been walking around after Game 2 with a noticeable limp, according to reports, but the tweak appears to have healed in time for tomorrow’s Game 3 in Indiana.

The Felton news most certainly comes as welcoming to Knick fans as a Felton injury would’ve forced both Pablo Prigioni and Jason Kidd into extended minutes.

Felton is averaging 16 points a game to go along with 3 assists on 61% shooting through the series first two games.

The series, which is currently tied at one a piece, shifts to Indiana this weekend with first tip on Saturday’s Game 3 scheduled for 8PM Eastern.
