01:26 PM ET 12.27 | After a riveting, dramatic, short-handed win over the Phoenix Suns last night, good spirits were flattened by some disappointing news: an X-ray revealed Raymond Felton has a fractured pinky finger. Estimates have been made that this newest injury could keep Felton out 4-6 weeks. Though fans and analysts alike have bemoaned Felton's recent struggles (he's had bone bruises on both hands that were affecting his shooting and passing), there's no doubt that Felton is the best choice as a starter among the Knicks' collection of point guards. Felton is younger, quicker, more capable of scoring, and at least competently skilled in passing compared to Jason Kidd and Pablo Prigioni. However, with Felton now sidelined for the next few weeks, it's understandable to be concerned if the Knicks can get by without their starting point guard.
