    Nyk Logo Knicks @ Bobcats 12/5/12. Kidd and Felton both to suit up.

    GREENBURGH, N.Y. -- New York Knicks point guard Raymond Felton will play on Wednesday against the Charlotte Bobcats despite suffering a bone bruise and contusion in his left hand.

    "It's going to be tough, but I'm going to play," said Felton.

    The Knicks are also optimistic that Jason Kidd (back spasms) will return from a four-game absence. Kidd says he'll play against the Bobcats but might not start.

    Mark L. Baer/USA TODAY Sports
    Carmelo Anthony might have both of his point guards in the lineup Wednesday night.
    Knicks coach Mike Woodson called Kidd "probable" and wants to see how the 39-year-old feels on Wednesday morning, presumably after the morning shootaround in Charlotte.


    "We'll just have to play it by ear and see how he feels," Woodson said. "It would be nice to have him back."

    Felton banged his left hand on Phoenix Suns guard Sebastian Telfair's knee while trying to split a double team in the fourth quarter of the Knicks' win on Sunday.

    An MRI taken shortly after the game revealed the bone bruise and contusion.

    Felton will play Wednesday's game with his left, non-shooting hand bandaged but doesn't believe that it will affect the way he dribbles the ball. He said he might feel discomfort catching passes and that his hand was still sore, but it's nothing he can't play through.

    Assuming Kidd plays against Charlotte, the Knicks will have their full complement of point guards healthy for the first time in 10 days.

    Kidd missed the past four games -- beginning with the Knicks' overtime loss to Brooklyn last Monday -- due to lower back spasms.

    He is unsure how the injury originated, but said Tuesday that he is pain-free and will not have any limitations due to the injury or conditioning when he returns.


    However, Kidd did not expect to start against Charlotte due to his extended absence. Woodson said he'll monitor Kidd's minutes closely because the Knicks play in Miami on Thursday and then travel to Chicago for a Saturday night game.

    "I've got to be open-minded because he's here for the long haul and we don't want any setbacks," the coach said.

    The Knicks (12-4) went 3-1 without Kidd with wins over Milwaukee, Washington and Phoenix.

    New York was able to move the ball well and keep its turnovers to a minimum thanks to Felton and third point guard Pablo Prigioni.

    Prigioni played an important role off the bench in the wins over Milwaukee and Washington. The 35-year-old rookie and longtime veteran of the Spanish League missed practice on Tuesday for personal reasons, but is expected to make the trip to Charlotte with the Knicks.

    Thanks mostly to Kidd, Felton and Prigioni, the Knicks entered play Tuesday with the fewest turnovers per game and top assist-to-turnover ratio in the league.

    In other injury news, Marcus Camby (sore left foot) sat out of the majority of practice on Tuesday but is expected to fly to Charlotte with the team.

    The 38-year-old veteran has played sparingly for the Knicks after missing the entire training camp and preseason with a sore left calf. He's said in recent days that he feels fine physically, so his lack of playing time, particularly during blowouts, has led to questions for Woodson about Camby's role.

    "Marcus is a pro about this whole thing," Woodson said. "He's going to do whatever's asked of him and he's done that. When he's really ready to play, we'll get him back out there because we're going to need him."

    This Game-Thread is not about the mediocre Charlotte Bobcats on Dec. 5th .. its about our rotation performance in the next 9 days crucial schedual ....

    How do u play back to back games .. or better yet 4 games in 5 days .. or 6 games in 9 days vs some tough competitive oponents?

    Coach Woody is sitting on 12-4 record going on the road the next 3 games to start our 6 games in 9 days off at the Lottery-Charlotte Bobcats territory first .. then the next night we play in Miami against the Championship Heat BIG-3, then we rest a night to swing north to a cold windy Chicago Bulls hometown for our first meeting with the Roseless Bulls, then the next night (5th day) we are at home facing the .500 record Denver Nuggets .. then one day rest before taking the A train to Brooklyn on the 7th day .. then on the 9th day we are at home vs Bum-Damnphoney and his crew of elite All-Stars .. just so coach Woody can take pity to give celebrity coach Bum-Damnphoney a win in MSG for oldtime sake.

    What will our Knicks record be on the morning of December 14th???
    The odds on a 18-4 record are a million to 1 dollar .. 15-7 are 50-50 odds
    Strange right?

    Yeah, but I think Woodson will monitor both carefully, if Kidd isn't totally confident he'll rest, Bobcats don't suck anymore, but if we could pull off another 4th quarter of resting guys that'd be huge. While we fans are pumped for tomorrow vs Miami, from a coaching standpoint Bobcats and Heat each count as 1 win, we don't want to go 0-2 while a split would have to be considered acceptable (though clearly not what we want), you don't want to risk throwing a should-win game to rest for a tough game and wind up 0-2 here I feel, take care of business tonight, if there are problems with either then you don't play them, but no offense to Ray, he is a tough dude and I love him, but how many of us would sit out a YMCA game with a bruised non shooting hand?

    Naw I'd rather not have tomorrow be Kidd's first game back or the first game with both in the backcourt together in a couple weeks...to beat Miami it will take a good start so better they look rusty at the start of tonight's game

    Agreed. Limit Kidd at least to say 20 minutes but they gotta play today and shake off the dust.

    Yeah I'm leaning that way as well. We should win quite comfortably even without them.
