DALLAS – Raymond Felton has suffered a setback.
Now in his first season with the Dallas Mavericks, Felton tweaked his right ankle in practice Tuesday. It’s the same ankle the 10-year veteran injured – a high right ankle sprain – during an Oct. 10 preseason game against Oklahoma City.
"He was able to finish the practice,’’ coach Rick Carlisle said. "But we’re going to watch it and hopefully it’s not any kind of a significant setback.’’
Felton finished serving a four-game suspension handed down by the NBA on Saturday and was eligible to play Monday against Indiana. But he was placed on the injured list, Carlisle said, because of a "coach’s decision.’’
Carlisle isn’t sure if Felton would be healthy enough to play in Wednesday’s home game against the New York Knicks. The same Knicks’ organization which traded Tyson Chandler and Felton to the Mavs on June 25 for Samuel Dalembert, Shane Larkin, Jose Calderon, Wayne Ellington and two second-round draft picks.
