Felton, who hit the game-winning shot Tuesday night against the Washington Wizards, was first injured in practice on Monday. Felton received treatment on Wednesday, but never took the floor to shoot around and was ruled out an hour before tip-off.
The fifth-year guard has started every game for the Bobcats this season and has shot a career-best 45.3 percent. Felton's 8.6 assists per contest in eight career games against Minnesota is his highest average against any team in the league.
D.J. Augustin made his first start of the season in place of Felton.
