Knicks’ Raymond Felton sits out of practice with injury


With all of the injuries the New York Knicks are going through, their roster is getting pretty slim as far as depth goes. Well, it just got a little thinner with point guard Raymond Felton having a hamstring injury of his own. According to the Knicks, Felton did not participate in Saturday’s practice because of a strained left knee.

Via ESPN New York:

It is unclear when Felton first suffered the injury. The Knicks’ starting point guard played just 15 minutes in the team’s preseason win over Washington on Thursday.

Afterward, coach Mike Woodson said he was resting Felton. He added that he expected Felton to play more minutes in Monday’s game against Toronto.

Throughout the preseason coach Mike Woodson has primarily played Felton in the backcourt with Pablo Prigoni, who played in place of Iman Shumpert. Woodson has said that he is resting Felton now so that he will be able to play more minutes against Toronto on Monday.

New York has a few more preseason games, and will begin their regular season on October 30, against the Milwaukee Bucks.

As of right now, there are no further details on Felton’s injury, but a more news comes out, make sure to stay updated at FanSided.
