Felton has been out since Dec. 10 with a strained right groin.
“I don’t think so,” Mike Woodson said when asked if Felton might be available against the Spurs. “I don’t think so, unless something changes, but I don’t think so.”
Pushed on Felton, Woodson said: “Until the medical and Ray agree he’s ready to go, he’s not on the floor practicing yet. So, I want Ray back in uniform but I can’t push a button and say, ‘Ray, you’re playing tomorrow.’ It’s not that type of deal. He’s got to go through the process and we’ll get him back when he’s ready.”
Felton has been in and out of the lineup this season with groin and hamstring injuries. He’s averaging 10.3 points and 5.2 assists.
The Knicks may also be without backup point guard Pablo Prigioni, who remains out with a hairline fracture of his right big toe. Prigioni said last week he needed another week or so to recover.
Felton, Prigioni and J.R. Smith all got treatment Monday and only did some shooting.
“[Smith] was just taking it easy today,” Woodson said. “He played a lot of minutes based on coming off flu-like symptoms. Hey he’ll be ready to play. He’s not the one, I’m just trying to get those other three guys back ready.”
