New York Knicks guard Raymond Felton practiced on Wednesday and will play in Thursday night's game against the Miami Heat after his court appearance Tuesday on gun charges.

Felton was charged with a third-degree count of criminal possession of a weapon and one count of criminal possession of a firearm. Both are considered felonies in New York.

Contrary to reports on Tuesday that indicated Felton's wife was allegedly threatened with a gun, no domestic charges were announced during Felton's court appearance.

Bail was set at $25,000 and includes no travel restrictions, but he was issued a six-month protection order from his wife. Felton is scheduled to appear in court again on June 2.

He said after practice on Wednesday that he plans to be with the Knicks for the remainder of the season.

"I want to start off by saying thank you to my teammates, thank you to the fans," Felton told reporters after practice. "To my family, to my friends, everybody for their support in this situation. This is not a distraction to this team. I'm focusing on finishing out this season, finishing out these games with my teammates.

"As far as speaking on what's going on off the court with me, there will be no comment. If you've got any questions, anything dealing with that, speak with my lawyer."

The NBA is monitoring the situation, but no punitive action is anticipated from the league or the Knicks until the legal process is completed.

"I spoke to him last night," Knicks coach Mike Woodson said. "And I think he's committed and focused. I thought today when he came in he was on board in terms of what we were trying to get accomplished in practice today. So I think that's not going to be an issue. I've just got to get him ready to go for tomorrow. We've got a big game in Miami.

"You are always surprised when something happens within your family. But again, I don't know the dynamics of it. I don't know where we go from today, but at the end of the day Ray is still a part of the Knicks family and he is still wearing a uniform, and it is my job to make sure that he is mentally and physically ready to play basketball, and that's what I am going to continue to do."

Prosecutors allege that the gun is an unregistered, Belgian-made semi-automatic pistol that was loaded with 18 rounds of ammunition, according to SI.com.

The 29-year-old Felton was questioned at the 20th precinct on the Upper West Side of Manhattan after turning himself in at 12:50 a.m. ET Tuesday following the Knicks' loss to the Dallas Mavericks in Madison Square Garden.

According to the New York Post, an attorney for Ariane Raymondo-Felton came to the precinct before the Knicks-Dallas Mavericks game on Monday night to turn over a pistol that she no longer wanted in her home. She later arrived at the station to make a statement to detectives, police said.

After signing a three-year, $10 million contract with the Knicks before this season, Felton has not played as well as in past years. He is averaging 10.5 points and 6.0 assists per game, down from his career averages of 13.3 points and 6.5 assists per game.
