New York Knicks point guard Raymond Felton might sit out against the Phoenix Suns on Wednesday night because of a sprained pinkie that he sustained in the loss to the Los Angeles Lakers on Christmas.

Felton sprained his left pinkie in the third quarter after diving for a loose ball and colliding with Lakers point guard Steve Nash, according to Marc Berman of The New York Post. The sprained pinkie itself might not be too serious but Felton had already been dealing with a bone bruise in both bands. He admitted after the game that his shot was off in the fourth quarter, finishing with 10 points on a night when he shot 5-of-19 from the floor.

"If it’s as tough in the fourth quarter when I couldn’t shoot the ball like I wanted to do, I’m not going to try to play. We’ll see. We’ll see what happens. I can’t answer that right now.’’
Berman also reported that Steve Novak said he blacked out for a few seconds after Lakers forward Metta World Peace elbowed him in the head while going for a rebound in the fourth quarter. World Peace fouled out with 1:58 remaining the game. Novak will undergo tests to determine whether there's anything that needs to be watched but he said he doesn't think it's a concussion. Novak finished the game with three points on two shots in 15 minutes.
