Raymond Felton Out 4-6 Weeks

New York Knicks/NBA(NEW YORK) -- New York Knicks starting point guard Raymond Felton announced Wednesday night that he has a fractured right pinkie finger and will miss the next four to six weeks.

Felton saw a hand specialist in New York Thursday, where the 28-year-old learned he wouldn't need surgery.

Felton injured the finger while diving after a loose ball in the Knicks' 100-94 loss to the Lakers on Christmas.

In 28 games this season, Felton has averaged 15.8 points, 6.3 assists and 2.9 rebounds a game.
