Knicks point guard Raymond Felton was diagnosed with a fractured pinky finger on his right hand, according to Newsday.

Felton injured the finger on Tuesday against the Lakers when he and Steve Nash both went for a ball. Originally, the injury was thought to be a sprained ligament, but X-rays revealed a fracture, which could keep Felton out for four to six weeks.

“I was hurt. I was angry. But it happens. It was a freak accident. Can’t be too upset. Just have to do what I’ve got to do and get the treatment so I can get back,” Felton said. “It’s tough, because I want to be there for my teammates and my team but I have to do what I have to do.”

Prior to the injury, Felton had started in all 28 games and was averaging 15.8 points and 6.3 assists per game.

knicks should have kept Lin or Lin should have stayed with the Knicks. Felton isn't as durable
