Knicks' Raymond Felton expected to play vs. Clippers


According to Ohm Youngmisuk of ESPN New York,

Raymond Felton said there’s a “95-percent chance” he will play against the Los Angeles Clippers, barring an overnight setback, after missing the last four games with a nerve issue in his hip and leg.

The Knicks and Clippers are set to play Wednesday night in the Staples Center.

“I had a good practice today, hopefully nothing flares up on me tonight,” Felton said on “The Michael Kay Show” on ESPN New York 98.7 FM. “It’s like a nerve, a pinched nerve shooting all the way down my leg from my hips, it has been pretty much both [hip and leg].”

The Knicks lost their sixth straight game on Monday, and fell to 3-10 on the season, which is enough to be in fourth place in the Atlantic division. Felton feels that the team is in no need to panic or be fearful of the rest of the season, and spoke with ESPN about it.

“I am here to tell you we are not panicking,” Felton said. “Not at all. We had a great practice today, everybody is positive.”

This is in reference to J.R. Smith’s statement about worrying over the team’s poor start to the season.
