Dallas Mavericks point guard Raymond Felton is reportedly healthy after a high ankle sprain in the preseason kept him out of the first few weeks of the season. Felton’s four-game suspension issued by the league over the summer will now begin and he will be eligible to suit up on Nov. 24 against the Pacers.

Felton pled guilty to attempted criminal possession of a weapon and criminal possession of a firearm. He also knowingly owned an unlicensed pistol and high-capacity ammunition. Felton had these charges before he went to Dallas via the New York Knicks and was earlier accused of pulling out a gun on his estranged wife. He paid a $5,000 fine and was ordered to 500 hours of community service.

The Mavericks are currently leading the league in scoring (109.3) and offensive efficiency (115.5) with the primary guard core of Jameer Nelson, Monta Ellis, Devin Harris, and J.J. Barea. Harris recently tweaked his ankle, which would open up some initial reserve minutes for Felton, but if anything Rick Carlisle will have even deeper options for his often three-guard line ups when Felton’s suspension is up later this month.
