Raymond Felton PG DAL 3 months ago

Felton exercised his $3.9 million player option to remain with the Mavericks next season, Real GM reports.

The decision was obvious for Felton, who likely would not have been able to fetch more than a minimum offer as a free agent. The 30-year-old appeared in 29 games for the Mavs this season, averaging 3.7 points and 1.4 assists on 40.6 percent shooting. Felton will remain in a bench role next season, though he could see a slight bump in minutes with Rajon Rondo gone and J.J. Barea's future with the team in question.

Felton endured the least productive year of his 10-year career this season, averaging 3.7 points and 9.7 minutes played in just 29 games.

Felton was reportedly in the running for a starting position during training camp but an ankle injury and a legal-mandated suspension derailed any chances of that happening. He moved further down the depth chart when the team acquired Rajon Rondo. He has a player option for next season but he remains a role player at best.

Felton (hamstring) logged three minutes of action in Game 4 against the Rockets. He posted two points and one rebound.

Felton has been dealing with various ailments throughout the season and hasn't been too effective. He capped off his best month in the regular season in April with averages of 9.4 points, 3.4 rebounds, and 1.0 steals. It's unlikely he'll be hitting that kind of production on a normal basis in the postseason, but he's still likely going see some minutes in the rotation if he's healthy.

Felton (hamstring) will play in Sunday's Game 4 against the Rockets, Earl Sneed of Mavs.com reports.

Felton and Richard Jefferson will come off the bench, with J.J. Barea and Al-Farouq Aminu in the starting lineup, according to Earl Sneed of Mavs.com. Felton should still have a key part to play in Sunday's game, as Dallas only has three guards in the rotation.

Felton (hamstring) is likely to play, but still a game-time decision, Earl Sneed of Mavs.com reports.

If he plays, Felton is still a decent risk given that he could see limited minutes for a team doing whatever it needs to avoid elimination. J.J. Barea and Devin Harris can both be expected to see extra minutes.

Felton (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Game 4 against the Rockets on Sunday, Earl K. Sneed of Mavs.com reports.

Felton pulled his right hamstring during Game 3 on Friday and won't be evaluated until he receives treatment Sunday morning. If he's unable to take the court, J.J. Barea and Devin Harris will be in line for a larger role in staving off elimination.

Felton pulled his hamstring during Friday's Game 3 against the Rockets, the Star-Telegram reports.

Felton was moved into the starting lineup for Rajon Rondo (back) on Friday but ultimately was restricted to just 13 minutes on the court with a hamstring injury. He should be considered day-to-day heading into Game 4 on Sunday while Devin Harris and J.J. Barea serve as potential beneficiaries if Felton is ruled out.

Felton will start in Friday's Game 3 against the Rockets, Bobby Karalla of Mavs.com reports.

Felton is the expected starter moving forward with Rajon Rondo (back) unlikely to play for Dallas again. Although, J.J. Barea and Devin Harris have a chance to see just as much time on the court as Felton, leaving all three point guards with similar value ahead of Game 3.

Felton could be a factor off the bench Tuesday when Dallas takes on Houston in Game 2, especially with point guard Devin Harris questionable with a toe injury.

Felton did not play in Game 1 but may be forced in action in Game 2. The veteran guard saw extended minutes down the stretch of the regular season with both JJ Barea and Devin Harris missing time.

Felton scored 10 points (4-9 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 1-2 FT) Wednesday in a win over the Trail Blazers. He added four assists and two steals.

Felton has seen his workload increase down the stretch with the team opting to rest regular members of the rotation. His minutes will likely decrease during the postseason.
