New York Knicks' Raymond Felton out 2-3 weeks


The New York Knicks have struggled at point guard this season.

On Tuesday, starting point guard Raymond Felton apparently “tweaked” his hamstring when he drove to the basket during the third quarter of the Knicks’ 109-94 loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Felton missed Wednesday’s 83-78 victory over the Chicago Bulls.

On Thursday, the Knicks announced Felton has a strained hamstring and will be out for 2-3 weeks.

Felton is averaging 10.3 points, 5.2 assists and 2.4 rebounds per game.

With Felton out, the Knicks will likely turn to Pablo Prigioni. He’s averaging 3.7 points, 2.8 assists and 1.9 rebounds per game. They also signed Beno Udrih away from the Orlando magic in the offseason. In 14 games this season, he’s putting up 4.2 points, 2.2 assists and 1.8 rebounds per game.

The Knicks are also heavily involved in talks with the Toronto Raptors about acquiring point guard Kyle Lowry. Lowry became more than expendable to the Raptors when they acquired point guard Greivis Vasquez in the Rudy Gay trade last week.

The Knicks reportedly also have interest in Denver Nuggets’ point guard Andre Miller.
