Raymond Felton appears in criminal court Tuesday, Feb. 25, 2014, in New York. Felton was arrested Tuesday on weapons charges after a lawyer for Felton's wife turned in a loaded gun allegedly belonging to the basketball star, saying she didn't want it in her home, police said.

"My job is to continue to coach and try to get guys to do the right thing on and off the basketball floor. I take pride in that, so when things creep in like this, it's a surprise, but again we've got to get through it," Woodson said.

"Again, I don't know the legal part, the severity of it. All I know is Raymond is still with us and I'm on Raymond's side in terms of trying to make sure that he's doing the necessary things to play basketball and I'm going to continue to do that."

Notes: The Knicks plan to sign veterans Shannon Brown and Earl Clark to 10-day contracts Thursday and have them available to play against the Heat. ... Anthony missed practice for personal reasons but will be with the team in Miami.
