Felton return will be boon to Knicks offense

Felton hasn't played since breaking his finger against the Lakers on Christmas Day.

The Knicks are well aware of the troubles that have plaguing the last six weeks as they’ve been without point guard Raymond Felton.

Felton gave the Knicks some good news, however, when he acknowledged he’s shooting for a return Saturday night in Philadelphia.

“When you’re moving Jason [Kidd] off the ball [and] putting me at the point, [I’m] just not used to all of that — adjusting on the fly and getting everyone else going accordingly,” Carmelo Anthony said. “Trust me, we’ll be glad when Raymond comes back [because] when everyone has to adjust on the fly and leaving me to run the point, try to make things happen, and try to get things going for myself along with everybody else, it can be tiring at times.”  

Felton, who was working on his conditioning and shooting on the side court with assistant coaches during yesterday’s session, has yet to be cleared for contact, but said there’s a “big chance” he’ll play against the 76ers. 

Pablo Prigioni, meanwhile, sat out yesterday’s practice after colliding with Kris Humphries in last Monday’s game and injuring his left big toe. But he’s hopeful he can return for Thursday’s game.

Prigioni noted how the team struggled to get into their sets in the fourth quarter of the Nets game without two of their three point guards being available.

“It was hard to walk at first and forget about running, but later after that, the pain started to go down,” said Prigioni. “It’s a little better now. … Nothing broke, I think. I hope.”
