“We’ll see what happens,” Felton said Sunday after practice. “It’s day-to-day, questionable so we’ll see tomorrow.”
Felton will go through shootaround in Orlando and then a decision will be made.
“We just have to play it by ear and see how he feels,” coach Mike Woodson said. “He goes through shootaround tomorrow and he says he’s good to go. Medical says he’s OK then we’ll suit him up
Felton has been bothered by both the hamstring and a hip injury all season, and said he doesn’t want to return too early. He came back Nov. 27 after missing four games, played seven games and then played his last game Dec. 10 before going out again.
“It’s just something to think about because I don’t want to keep aggravating this hamstring and if you keep aggravating something possibly it could tear and I definitely don’t want that so I’m just trying to be cautious for sure this time and make sure I’m 100 percent,” Felton said.
When he does return, he doesn’t want to be on a minutes-restriction, either.
“If I come back I want to come back and play,” he said. “I don’t want to be under no minute restriction or anything like that. At the same time, I don’t control the minutes, either. That’s something that coach controls. If he get something from the doctors telling him that I can’t play that many minutes then he’s forced to do what he has to do. We’ll see what happens.”
