Coming into tonight’s game against the Detroit Pistons, Knicks point guard Raymond Felton was a game-time decision. Well, it has been announced that Felton will miss Tuesday’s game “due to hamstring soreness and a pinched nerve in his hip,” according to ESPN New York.
Felton is considered day to day by the team. He first injured his hamstring in the preseason.
Both the hip and hamstring injuries have impacted Felton’s performance this season. The veteran point guard is shooting just 37 percent from the field and 20 percent from beyond the arc.
Felton, according to reports, is considering sitting out multiple games to let the injury heal.
“I don’t want to sit out any games. But if I have to, then I got to do what I got to do, so I’m healthy enough to help this team,” Felton told reporters on Tuesday.
It is unclear at this time when Felton will return to the court for the Knicks, but hopefully for the team’s sake, it’s sooner rather than later. The Knicks could use any extra help Felton can give them, seeing as they are currently sitting at 3- on the season.
However, they are playing the Pistons, who are also 3-6 thus far this season. Maybe the Knicks made the right call to sit Felton tonight.
