Reports: Felton questionable vs. Pistons

November, 19, 2013
New York Knicks point guard Raymond Felton is dealing with hamstring soreness and a pinched nerve in his hip, according to reports.

Felton injured his hip against San Antonio on Nov. 10 when he was hit on a screen.

Both injuries have hampered Felton's play. He is having a tough time defending the opponent's lead guard and is shooting just 38 percent from the field and 21 percent from beyond the arc.

"It's very tough," Felton said, according to a story posted on Newsday's website. "Me, I'm just not the type of guy who complains. I'm still trying to come out and play through whatever, trying to do whatever I can to help this team, but at the same time I don't want to hinder the team."

He is questionable for Tuesday's game against the Pistons and reportedly is considering sitting out a few games.

"It’s a pinched nerve," Felton said, according to a story on the New York Post's website. "I can’t put no timetable on it. It’s not a bone, not a muscle. One of the things that have to go away.

"I sat out a lot of games last year [with a fractured pinkie], and one of my things this year is not sitting out," Felton added. "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."

With Felton out, Woodson will reportedly consider starting seldom-used point guard Beno Udrih.

Metta out: Metta World Peace will be out Tuesday with a knee injury. Woodson confirmed a report by stating that World Peace had fluid drained from his left knee Monday.
