Raymond Felton was told on Thursday that surgery on his fractured left pinke would be unnecessary and that the finger would be stabilized by a splint. Felton will miss between four and six weeks.

Felton called his injury “a freak accident.”

“Key guys get banged up here and there, and we have enough guys on our team that guys just have to step up,” said Mike Woodson.

Woodson plans to increase Pablo Prigioni’s minutes with Felton unavailable.
