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."
