Maybe.  What are your SYMPTOMS?  Do you have pain in your wrist/fingers?  Do you have limited use of your hand or fingers?  

The navicular bone (talonavicular) is in your wrist.  

Carpal and metacarparal are finger bones.  

More importantly, do you have documetation of a hand or finger injury in service?

And, do you have a doctor who stated your diagnosis is at least as likely as not due to an in service event??  

If your answers to my questions are favorable for rating, then yes.  

However, if you dont have symptoms, or if you lack a nexus, then you will get zero percent "at best".  

If you have symptoms, but lack a nexus, then you can consider getting an IMO to get rated, provided that you have an in service event or aggravation.
