Knight is expected to miss some time after undergoing a clean-up procedure on his left knee, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports. It's unclear whether Knight underwent another surgery, in addition to a procedure he had in July, or if he's simply still dealing with some lingering discomfort from the original one. Either way, it appears Knight won't be ready for the start of training camp and there's a realistic chance this could be something that lingers into the start of the regular season. When healthy, Knight is expected to give Chris Paul a breather most nights, but it's still questionable just how big of a workload he'll be able to take on considering he hasn't played in a game since the 2016-17 season. Michael Carter-Williams is also expected to split time in the backcourt.
Knight, who underwent a surgical "cleanup" on his knee about six weeks ago, may not be ready for the beginning of training camp, John Gambadoro of Arizona Sports 98.7 FM reports. Knight expects to be ready for the season, however. Knight's career has been plagued by injuries lately, as he missed all of last season with a torn ACL and hasn't played more than 63 games since 2013-14. The hope is certainly that this most recent procedure will help strengthen his knee ahead of the season, though he may miss some valuable time during camp to build chemistry with his new teammates. In joining Houston, Knight appears to be a depth option at either guard slot, and it's not clear if he'll be an everyday player.
Knight and Marquese Chriss were traded from the Suns to the Rockets in exchange for Ryan Anderson and De'Anthony Melton on Thursday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports. Knight should be ready for the 2018-2019 season after undergoing ACL surgery in his left knee in August of 2017. Though he sat out the entire 2017-2018 season, he averaged 11.0 points, 2.2 rebounds and 2.4 assists per game in 54 games during the 2016-2017 campaign. Knight figures to add depth off the bench for the Rockets.
Knight (knee) was a full participant in Monday's summer league practice session, John Gambadoro of ArizonaSports.com reports. Knight missed the entire 2017-18 campaign after tearing his left ACL and he's been going through the recovery process for just under a year now. However, Knight is currently joining the Suns' summer league team for practice and his full participation appears to indicate the 26-year-old guard is back to full strength, or close to it. That means Knight is likely going to be a full-go ahead of training camp, which is good news for a team that let Elfrid Payton walk in free agency and recently waived Tyler Ulis. Still, what sort of role the oft-injured Knight will have is unclear at this point in, so it's likely a situation to simply monitor for now. The Suns also selected guard Elie Okobo with the first pick in the second round of the 2018 NBA Draft.
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.
