Knight (knee) tallied 11 points (4-10 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 2-3 FT), four rebounds, three assists and two steals over 25 minutes in Friday's 112-107 preseason win over the Mavs.
Knight was suffering from some knee tendinitis entering the contest but was able to still log his customary amount of preseason playing time while also notching his third straight double-digit scoring effort. Knight also has one three-pointer in each of the last three contests and has been solid on the boards out of the two-guard spot, averaging 3.8 rebounds over four exhibition tilts. The sixth-year pro got the start due to Devin Booker (ankle) sitting out, but is expected to serve as the sixth man to open the regular season.
Knight (knee) will play in Friday's preseason matchup with the Mavericks, Craig Grialou of 98.7 FM reports.
Knight was originally listed as questionable for the contest due to left knee tendinitis. The issue was believed to be minor, and his status for Friday's game appears to back that thought process up. The Suns would be likely to rest Knight in order to ensure his health going forward if the issue was thought to be more serious. With Devin Booker and Archie Goodwin ruled already ruled out, Knight could be in line for a healthy dose of minutes.

Knight sat out Wednesday's game against the Jazz with the left knee tendinitis, but the issue was believed to have been minor. He will likely be a game-time decision Friday night with the Suns potentially leaning towards being cautious with their sixth man. With Devin Booker ruled out, Archie Goodwin could be in line for a big dose of minutes against the Mavericks should Knight be out as well.
Knight will sit out Wednesday's preseason matchup against the Jazz due to right knee tendinitis.
Knight is expected to act as the team's sixth man off the bench to start the season, with Eric Bledsoe and Devin Booker running as the starters in the backcourt. However, he's dealing with tendinitis in his knee and will sit out Wednesday. Tendinitis is always concerning for any player due to its tendency to linger, although for now, he doesn't appear to be in danger of missing extended time. He'll get the night off for further rest and recovery, but could be available as soon as Friday's game against the Mavericks.
Knight will open the season as the team's sixth man, but Wednesday's outing showed that he can still provide a major impact in that role. Even so, he's in line for a downturn in playing time after averaging 36.0 minutes per game a season ago, which should hurt his numbers across every category. So long as expectations remain tempered while Knight works as the third guard behind starters Eric Bledsoe and Devin Booker, the 24-year-old is deserving of a roster spot in all fantasy formats.
