Raymond Felton's return to the hard court may be short-lived. 

The New York Knicks point guard, who appeared in his first game Wednesday after missing four straight contests with hip and hamstring injuries, was in considerable pain after the team's loss.

Marc Berman of the New York Post has the news:

Felton calls it "mindboggling". Was in pain in locker room and had to sit back down.

The details at this point are pretty scarce, but Felton played 35 minutes on Wednesday in what was his first game in 11 days, and this is likely a result. 

New York's next game is on Friday, and it will probably depend on how Felton's body reacts overnight as to whether or not he's available. 

Entering Wednesday night's contest, Felton was averaging 11.1 points, 5.2 assists and 1.3 steals per contest. If he's forced to miss more time, Beno Udrih and Pablo Prigioni will share duties at point guard.
