Raymond Felton PG DAL 3 Days

Felton (foot) has progressed to doing exercises in a pool, Earl Sneed of Mavs.com reports.

Felton is nursing a high ankle sprain and has exceeded the original 10-day recovery timeline. However, with the regular season still a week away, and Felton facing a four-game suspension, he'll have plenty of time to continue his recovery before taking the floor for the first time in a Mavs uniform.

Felton has a severe ankle sprain and will be out at least 10 days, Mavs' official site reports.

This 10 day timetable for Felton's return indicates that he has a fairly severe ankle sprain. Felton will have more than 10 days to recover before the regular season starts, so expect him to take as much time as he needs to heal his ankle. Even if Felton does start the season off healthy though, he will only be worth a late round pick in deeper leagues.

Felton suffered a sprained right ankle Friday in Dallas' preseason game against Oklahoma City, ESPN Dallas reports.

Felton was helped off the court but x-rays were negative. Even if he is healthy by opening night, he will miss the first four games of the year due to suspension.

Felton will be suspended four games to begin the 2014-15 season, NBA.com reports.

After pleading guilty to attempted criminal possession of a weapon and criminal possession of a firearm in late July, the final stanza of his punishment has been issued by commissioner Adam Silver. Once he's eligible to take the court, he'll have to contend with Devin Harris and Jameer Nelson for run at the point.

Raymond Felton was fined $5,000 and sentenced to 500 hours of community service on Wednesday, as part of his plea bargain involving weapons charges.

Felton pleaded guilty to attempted criminal possession of a weapon and criminal possession of a firearm, but he avoided jail time or probation. The NBA has not announced any punishment for Felton, who may face a short suspension to begin the season. Whether he'll start at PG for the Mavericks remains uncertain, as Dallas has shown interest in veteran free agents Mo Williams and Jameer Nelson.

Mavericks PG Raymond Felton is eager to "show everybody that ... [he] can still play as an elite point guard at this level."

Acknowledging his struggles and vowing to turn things around has become a tiresome summer ritual for Felton, who averaged a career-worst 9.7 points and 5.6 assists last season. "I was just fighting with a lot of injuries and I was fighting with a lot of mental stuff off the court," Felton said. He faced felony weapon charges after allegedly threatening his wife with a handgun, but avoided jail time by reaching a plea bargain in June. He claims to be in his best physical shape in "four or five years," but despite his offseason optimism fantasy owners should pass over him until the late rounds.

Raymond Felton said he's in the best shape he's been in for the last four or five years.

"I'm in the best shape I've been in for the last 4 or 5 years," Felton said on Tuesday. The 30-year-old also added that he plays best in a free-flowing system like Rick Carlisle's systems, which can be backed up by career-high numbers that he posted with the Knicks under Mike D'Antoni during the 2010-11 season. While the bar wasn't set very high to begin with, it's a promising sign that Felton is getting himself in shape as he prepares to open the season as the Maverick's starting point guard. If Felton can stay healthy, he could end up providing a solid return to fantasy owners who take a chance on him later in drafts.

Raymond Felton said he's looking forward to a fresh start in Dallas and would also like to play with Carmelo Anthony.

Felton is coming off the worst year of his career and was perhaps the worst starting point guard in the entire league. "A lot of things happened last year. It's going to be good to just put all that behind and just move on and start off fresh," Felton said. While changing uniforms could only help him, we still can't sign off on targeting him in fantasy leagues due to how awful he was last season.

Raymond Felton was traded to the Mavericks on Wednesday.

The Mavericks obviously didn't make this deal to bring on Felton and the $3.8 million on his contract this year or the $4.0 on his player option for next season. Last season, Felton turned in career lows in points, field goal percentage, free throw percentage, and steals while his minutes were the fewest he's played since his rookie year. The Mavericks will likely play Monta Ellis at the point a little more and we're not very bullish on a Felton bounce-back year despite how a change of scenery can only help him.
