Knight (knee) had six points (1-7 FG, 1-6 3Pt, 3-5 FT), six assists and five rebounds in 34 minutes during Wednesday's 124-106 loss to the 76ers. Knight returned to action following a one-game absence with a knee issue and struggled badly from the field. Still, he has earned 30-plus minutes in two of his last three outings and has dished at least six assists in three of his last four.
Knight (knee) will be available for Wednesday's game against the Sixers, Keith Langlois of Pistons.com reports. Knight was held out of Sunday's game with a knee issue, but coach Dwane Casey confirmed Tuesday that the guard will be back to availability Wednesday night. It's unclear if Knight will return to the starting lineup.
Though coach Dwane Casey indicated Knight (knee) would be available in a limited role for Sunday's game against the Knicks, the veteran guard didn't see the court in the Pistons' 96-84 loss. In Casey's parlance, "limited" must have meant "only in an emergency," as Knight was withheld from action in the second half of the back-to-back set with a sore left knee. Considering that Knight was questionable prior to Saturday's 111-105 loss to the Jazz, the Pistons were probably wise to act cautiously. Knight should have a better chance at seeing action Wednesday in Philadelphia, though it's unclear whether he'll take back the starting point guard job from Bruce Brown, who was effective in Knight's stead Sunday (16 points, six assists and four rebounds in 37 minutes).
Knight (knee) will be available Sunday against the Knicks, but he'll have a minutes limit, Keith Langlois of Pistons.com reports. Knight is battling a sore knee, and while he'll be available, he'll move to the bench and only be cleared for limited action. Dwane Casey did not specific how many minutes he expects Knight to play.
Knight is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Knicks with a right hamstring strain. A sore left knee put Knight's status in question in advance of Saturday's game against the Jazz, but he proceeded to start at point guard in the 111-105 loss, finishing with 13 points (3-9 FG, 3-8 3Pt, 4-4 FT), four rebounds, three assists and one block in 29 minutes. The veteran guard apparently came out of that contest with a new injury in tow, and given his shaky health history, it wouldn't be surprising if the Pistons erred on the side of caution and withheld Knight from action in the second half of the back-to-back set. If Knight is sidelined, Bruce Brown and Jordan McRae could take on most of the ball-handling responsibilities.
