Notes: Felton (hamstring) sits out

10/19/2013

GREENBURGH, N.Y. -- You can add Raymond Felton to the Knicks' injury list.

Felton sat out of Saturday's practice with a strained left hamstring, according to the Knicks.

The point guard said he injured his hamstring in Thursday's preseason win over the Washington Wizards.

"They're just sitting me out to let me rest a little bit," Felton said. "If I had to play, I would play."

Felton's status for Monday's preseason game against Toronto is unclear, but he downplayed the severity of the injury.

"They told me to just take some time off because they don't want to me to actually strain it or pull a muscle. Then I'd be out two, three weeks and I won't play during the regular season," Felton said. "Preseason, these games don't really count."

Also, Iman Shumpert (sprained right elbow) sat out of practice for the second straight day. Shumpert's absence, though, was expected. He worked on the side with a Knicks trainer, dribbling with his left hand.

Both Felton and Shumpert are being listed as day-to-day.

METTA OK: Metta World Peace was back on the practice floor and scrimmaging after missing Thursday's game with an ankle injury. He should play Monday in Toronto. ... J.R. Smith (knee) is traveling with the team to Toronto and Green Bay. Woodson hopes Smith can begin scrimmaging some time on the road trip.
