New York Knicks point guard Raymond Felton told reporters Wednesday that he expects to miss four to six weeks with a fractured finger, but insisted he'll play again this season.
"This isn't a season-ending injury," Felton told reporters in Phoenix, according to New York Newsday. "It's something that will last 4 to 6 weeks at the most."
Felton suffered a broken right pinkie finger during the third quarter of a Christmas Day loss to the Los Angeles Lakers when he and Steve Nash fought over a loose ball. X-rays revealed the break.
"I may need surgery," Felton told reporters, according to the New York Post. "I got to do what's best for my hand so I can get back and help this team."
Jason Kidd started for Felton, who missed his first game of the season. The 28-year-old had averaged 15.8 points and leads the team with 6.3 assists per game.
