Newsday's Al Iannazzone takes you inside the Knicks.
Raymond Felton’s hand injury is much more serious than originally thought and could sideline him for at least a month.
X-rays revealed a fracture in Felton’s right fifth finger. The Knicks said the next course of action will be determined after his return to New York. But Felton told reporters in Phoenix he might need surgery and that could keep him out 4-to-6 weeks.

Carmelo Anthony and Kobe Bryant were the brightest stars Christmas afternoon in Los Angeles, but it was the two guys that were missing the last time the Knicks and Lakers played who made a difference.
Steve Nash’s brilliance at point guard and Pau Gasol’s big plays late helped lift the Lakers over the Knicks, 100-94.
You knew once Nash came back from his left injury he would have an...Read more »
The change in the Knicks has been dramatic since Mike Woodson replaced Mike D’Antoni.
With D’Antoni back at the Garden with the struggling Lakers tonight, Woodson was asked this morning to explain why the Knicks’ play is so different. After thinking about it, trying to find what he wanted to say, Woodson responded:
“Maybe I scared them into playing. I don’t know. I had some things that...Read more »
Jason Kidd spearheaded every win the Nets had over the Knicks from the 2001-02 season through 2007-08 and Tuesday night he showed his old team what they could have had.
Kidd was on the Nets’ radar over the summer. But they never truly pursued him. They went in a different direction and ended up with C.J. Watson, who is a good backup and much younger. Kidd appeared heading back to the Mavericks,...Read more »
Before J.R. Smith hit the game-winning shot that lifted the Knicks over the Bobcats 100-98, he missed many wide-open looks and made a strange decision seconds earlier that could have come back haunted him and his team.
After stealing a Michael Kidd-Gilchrist pass, Smith appeared to have a layup, but he backed it out and some of his teammates gave him an earful.
Raymond Felton gestured...Read more »
The Knicks are apparently looking forward to the March 27 game against the Grizzlies and looking for some kind of payback.
Last night’s 105-95 Grizzlies' win was a physical contest that really had a playoff atmosphere.
“Hats off to the Grizzlies,” Rasheed Wallace said. “But one thing that we’re saying: they’ve got to come to the Garden.”
In the second quarter J.R. Smith elbowed...Read more »
Ronnie Brewer had his left leg in a long black compression device while the Knicks practiced today.
Mike Woodson called it precautionary because Brewer had soreness and swelling in the left knee that was scoped in September. The Knicks are calling him probable for tomorrow’s game against the Spurs.
“He’ll play,” Woodson said. “It’s a precaution. Today we weren’t going to do much anyway....Read more »
J.R. Smith has been one of the key factors in the Knicks’ 4-0 start with not just his scoring, but his overall play off the bench.
Smith admitted he’s a little surprised at the Knicks’ record and how well they’re playing.
“Yes and no,” Smith said after practice Saturday. “I say yes because of how old our team is and the injuries to Iman [Shumpert] and [Amar’e Stoudemire].
“I say...Read more »
Having Jason Kidd, J.R. Smith, Marcus Camby, Steve Novak, Iman Shumpert (when healthy), Rasheed Wallace and Kurt Thomas means you have depth and the already injury-plagued Knicks may need it.
Letting Jeremy Lin go wasn’t a popular decision, but the Knicks improved at point guard with more polished and respected players Raymond Felton, Jason Kidd and Pablo...Read more »
And so it begins.
Amar’e Stoudemire’s injury has opened up the possibility to Mike Woodson playing different lineups depending on the match-ups.
This is not the ideal situation because you want to have the same starting five as much as possible.
But take tonight for example.
The Knicks could start Raymond Felton, Ronnie Brewer, Tyson Chandler, Kurt Thomas and Carmelo Anthony...Read more »
