PHILADELPHIA (AP) -Charlotte point guard Raymond Felton missed the Bobcats' game Wednesday night against Philadelphia because of a left knee injury.
Felton said he was day to day and hoped to play Friday night against Indiana.
``If it was up to me, I'd play now,'' he said.
Jeff McInnis started against Philly.
Felton was hurt against Phoenix on Tuesday night when he drove into the lane and made a spin move on Suns guard Steve Nash, who fell down in front of him. Felton tripped over him and landed awkwardly on his left leg.
A foul was called on Nash, and Felton attempted both free throws. But after missing the second, he crumpled to the floor and stayed there during the Suns' possession.
Felton, who averaged 19 points in the first three games, was attended to for several minutes before getting to his feet. He was then helped into the locker room without putting any pressure on his left leg.
``It scared me at first,'' Felton said. ``I had some stiffness and swelling but the swelling has gone down.''
