On Monday night, New York Knicks‘ point guard Raymond Felton was questioned by police on for “allegedly pointing a gun at a woman.” As details began to emerge, Felton was arrested on three weapons charges and the NBA is now going to ”monitor” his situation.
According to Fred Kerber, Marc Berman and Brian Lewis of the New York Post, Felton has been released on bail and is expected to practice Wednesday and play Thursday when the Knicks take on the Miami Heat.
So the point guard who was arraigned Tuesday evening on two gun charges, is expected to practice Wednesday and then play for the Knicks in Miami Thursday, The Post has learned.
That may have been the only bright spot for Felton in recent tumultuous weeks. Felton surrendered to police early Tuesday and then was charged with two counts of weapons possession, one felony and one misdemeanor — facing a maximum of seven years in prison. Felton’s case was adjourned until June 2 and the Knicks point guard left Manhattan Criminal Court on Tuesday night on $25,000 cash bond, posted by his mother.
Felton turned over his gun to the police Tuesday.
Felton is averaging 10.4 points, 6.0 assists, 3.0 rebounds and 1.0 steals per game this season.
