    Suns' Brandon Knight: Unlikely to play until after the break

    Knight (groin) isn't expected to return to action until after the All-Star break, Paul Coro of the Arizona Republic reports. Updates on Knight's condition have been sparse since he was diagnosed with a groin strain in late January, and with the Suns well removed from playoff contention, there's no need to rush the guard back into action at less than full health. The Suns will likely see how he's feeling after the break before perhaps offering a timetable for his return.

    Suns' Brandon Knight: Likely out Thursday

    Knight (groin) will likely be out for Thursday's game against the Rockets. Knight's bothersome groin injury kept him sidelined for the Suns' recent four-game road trip, and he could remain out until after the All-Star break. The good sign is that the injury likely won't require surgery, but the Suns will have to rely on Archie Goodwin and Devin Booker in the backcourt while Knight remains out. His situation should continue to be monitored until an official timetable for a return is in place.

    Suns' Brandon Knight: Ruled out next four games

    Knight (groin) has been ruled out for the entirety of the Suns' upcoming four-game road trip, the Arizona Republic reports. Knight has been hampered by the groin since New Year's Eve, and he's missed each of the last two games after aggravating the injury during Tuesday's loss to Indiana. The 24-year-old received a second opinion in Los Angeles on Friday, and he said he was "definitely encouraged" by the visit and believes he'll be able to avoid surgery. Knight will remain in Phoenix while the team heads to Philadelphia to begin the trip Tuesday night, and the earliest he could be back on the court is next Tuesday (Feb. 2) when the Suns return home to host the Raptors. With Eric Bledsoe (knee) done for the season, the Suns will rely on young guards Archie Goodwin and Devin Booker to pick up the slack. Lorenzo Brown is also an option, though his second 10-day contract is set to expire Wednesday.

    Suns' Brandon Knight: Will undergo a second opinion on groin

    Knight underwent a second opinion on his strained groin in Los Angeles on Saturday, Paul Coro of the Arizona Republic reports. "Based on me getting more information from other eyes and ears on the situation, I'm definitely encouraged about doing what is best," Knight said. Knight missed his second game in a row Saturday against the Hawks while getting more information about his ailing groin, which has been bothering him from more than three weeks. Because the Suns were already down Eric Bledsoe (knee) and Ronnie Price (foot) for extended periods of time, Knight opted to log heavy minutes and play through the injury, but after aggravating the injury last Tuesday against the Pacers while attempting to dunk, he decided it was best to take some time off. The Suns haven't outlined a timeline for when Knight may be able to take the court again, so it might be risky for those who own him in weekly leagues to keep him active.

    Suns' Brandon Knight: Out again Saturday

    Knight (hip) will not play Saturday versus the Hawks, Paul Cora of Arizona Central Sports reports. This will be the second consecutive game missed for Knight, and the Suns are dealing with a very depleted backcourt. Archie Goodwin will likely replace night at point guard in the starting lineup. He and Devin Booker should see increased roles in the offense. Knight's next opportunity to return will be Tuesday versus the 76ers.

    Suns' Brandon Knight: Will not play Thursday

    Knight (hip) has been ruled out of Thursday's game against the Spurs, Craig Grialou of 98.7 FM Arizona Sports reports. Knight is dealing with a strained hip and will join fellow backcourt players Ronnie Price (foot) and Eric Bledsoe (knee) on the sideline. With so many injuries, the Suns are expected to start Archie Goodwin and Devin Booker in the backourt and both should see a boost in their minutes, as there's limited healthy bodies available. Knight's next opportunity to return will be Saturday against the Hawks.

    Suns' Brandon Knight: Questionable for Thursday

    Knight is questionable for Thursday's game against the Spurs with a strained hip, Paul Coro of the Arizona Republic reports. The details on the injury are relatively unknown, as this is the first time the injury has been reported. It may have something to do with the high-volume of minutes Knight has seen ever since backcourt partner Eric Bledsoe's (knee) went down for the season. The 24-year-old is averaging 39 minutes per game in January, including a 41-minute outing on Tuesday against the Pacers. An official decision about Knight's status will likely wait to be made until after pregame warmups, when the Suns can determine how serious the injury is.

    Suns' Brandon Knight: Turnover machine in loss to Pacers

    Knight registered 21 points (8-22 FG, 2-9 3Pt, 3-3 FT), eight rebounds, four assists, and one steal across 41 minutes in Tuesday's 97-94 loss to the Pacers. He also turned the ball over a season-high eight times. The season-ending injury to Eric Bledsoe (knee) has enabled Knight to clear 40 minutes with increasing regularity, but the added responsibility has also come with a decrease in efficiency. Knight has shot 43.2 percent from the field and 25.9 percent from three-point range and has produced more turnovers (22) than assists (13) in the last four games.

    Suns' Brandon Knight: Plays game-high 40 minutes Friday

    Knight (illness) had 16 points (7-15 FG, 2-7 3Pt), four assists, two steals, and one block in 40 minutes during the Suns' 117-103 loss to the Celtics on Friday. Knight was apparently unaffected by the illness, as he played a game-high 40 minutes on Friday after missing Tuesday's match-up versus the Pacers. Over his last four appearances, Knight is averaging 21.3 points (44.3 FG, 31.8 3Pt, 100.0 FT) on 19.8 shots, six assists to 3.3 turnovers, 2.5 rebounds, 0.5 steals, and 0.5 blocks in 40 minutes per game. Suns' coach Jeff Hornacek has been relying on him heavily on a nightly basis of late, with Knight playing 40 or more minutes in six of his past 13 contests.

    Suns' Brandon Knight: Looking likely to play Friday

    Knight (illness) is expected to be available for Friday's game against the Celtics, Paul Coro of the Arizona Republic reports. A bout of food poisoning resulted in Knight missing Tuesday's game against the Pacers, but after the 24-year-old was able to log a full practice Wednesday, it looks as he's in little danger of sitting out another contest. Knight should be in line for his usual 35-to-40 minutes upon returning, which will push Archie Goodwin back into a reserve role.
