Knicks’ Felton has bone bruise on non-shooting hand

Well, it could have been worse. It’s not broken.

Raymond Felton suffered the hand injury in the fourth quarter against the Suns Sunday. The Knicks say an MRI revealed it to be a bone bruise, reports the New York Daily News. While it’s not his shooting hand, the severity of the injury would impact his ball handling.

“It’s swollen right now,” Felton said. “It’s a lot of pain, but we’ll see what happens.”

Felton is listed as day-to-day. Which doesn’t mean much coming from the Knicks, where Jeremy Lin was listed as day-to-day before his surgery last year and Amare Stoudemire was listed as day-to-day to start this season.

Jason Kidd is out — he also is listed as day-to-day but it’s longer term than that — which means the Knicks point guard duties will fall heavily on Pablo Prigioni.
