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.
