  • Knight (knee) underwent surgery to repair a torn ACL in his left knee and has officially been declared out for the entirety of the upcoming 2017-18 campaign, Sam Amico of Fox Sports Ohio reports. As expected, Knight will be sidelined for all of 2017-18 after tearing his ACL in late July during a basketball game in South Florida. As it stood, he wasn't projected to have a significant fantasy role. He struggled to find a groove during the 54 games he appeared in, posting just 11.0 points, 2.4 assists and 2.2 rebounds across 21.1 minutes per game. The combo guard also shot a poor 39.8 percent from the field. With Knight out of commision, guys like Tyler Ulis and Elijah Millsap could see additional run, though the bulk of the minutes at both guard slots will still seemingly go to Eric Bledsoe and Devin Booker.

  • Knight has suffered a torn ACL in his left knee, requiring surgery, and could miss the entirety of the upcoming 2017-18 season, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports. Knight struggled to find his way into the Suns' rotation last season, playing in just 54 games and posting 11.0 points, 2.4 assists and 2.2 boards across 21.1 minutes per game while shooting 39.8 percent from the field -- all career-worsts. Now, it appears that there's a chance Knight won't participate at all during the 2017-18 season as the result of an ACL tear in his left knee, which he suffered while playing in his native South Florida. Though he wasn't expected to see a significant role next season after floundering in a sixth man role last year, his injury will likely open up more opportunities for the likes of Tyler Ulis and Elijah Millsap, assuming the Suns don't make a move to acquire another guard in free agency or via trade.

  • Suns' Brandon Knight: Shut down for rest of season
    By RotoWire Staff

    Knight will not play for the remainder of the season, per coach Earl Watson, Doug Haller of the Arizona Republic reports. The decision doesn't come as much of a surprise considering Knight has not been part of the rotation for more than a month. Still, it's somewhat of a disappointing result for those who believed Knight would rebound after somewhat of an underwhelming 2016-16 campaign. The former Kentucky star averaged 19.6 points per game last season but shot just 41.5 percent from the floor, and he immediately struggled to solidify his role with the team in 2016-17. Assuming Knight doesn't see the floor the rest of the season, he'll conclude the campaign with averages of 11.0 points, 2.4 assists and 2.2 rebounds in 21.1 minutes per game. Knight, who started five of 54 games played, converted only 39.8 percent of his field goals, while shooting 32.4 percent from three. He's reportedly been battling back spasms of late, but the lottery-bound Suns obviously have other motivations as the season moves into its final stretch.

  • Suns' Brandon Knight: Ruled out Friday vs. Magic
    By RotoWire Staff

    Knight (back) has been ruled out for Friday's game against the Magic, John Gambadoro of ArizonaSports.com reports. With Eric Bledsoe (knee) shelved for the rest of the season and Leandro Barbosa (illness) listed as doubtful Friday, Knight may have been in line for his first appearance since the All-Star break if he was available, but he'll instead remain sidelined for the second straight game due to back spasms. The lack of healthy bodies could allow backcourt starters Tyler Ulis and Devin Booker to approach 40 minutes Friday, making both players appealing targets in DFS. Ronnie Price will likely serve as the top backup at both guard spots.

  • Suns' Brandon Knight: Questionable Friday vs. Magic
    By RotoWire Staff

    Knight (back) is questionable for Friday's game against the Magic, Doug Haller of The Arizona Republic reports. Knight hasn't seen the floor in 11 straight contests, but with Eric Bledsoe (knee) likely being shut down for the season, it's possible he could reenter the rotation before the campaign concludes. Before that happens, however, Knight will have to demonstrate that the back spasms he's recently experienced aren't anything too debilitating. Ronnie Price would act as the main backup to new starting point guard Tyler Ulis if Knight remains held out Friday.
