Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical:

Felton returning to Knicks lineup vs. Sixers

The SportsXchange

New York Knicks guard Raymond Felton will return to the lineup Saturday night against the Philadelphia 76ers after missing five weeks with a fractured right pinky, according to ESPN New York.

Felton will start at point guard and expects to play without a minutes restriction.

"If I need to play him 40 (minutes), I might play him 40," coach Mike Woodson said.

Felton will have a precautionary X-ray taken after the game to make sure he can go against the Atlanta Hawks on Sunday. He will play alongside Jason Kidd, who missed practice Friday with a back ailment. However, Kidd is expected to play.

"I feel great, I feel great," Kidd said. "I'm young, I bounce back."

The Knicks will go with a three-guard alignment against the Sixers, with Iman Shumpert as a swingman.

The Knicks (26-14) went 7-7 without Felton.
