Knight ended with nine points (4-8 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 1-2 FT), four rebounds, one assist and one steal in 19 minutes during Wednesday's 131-113 loss to Memphis. Knight found himself in an enlarged role with both Clint Capela (Achilles) and John Collins (ankle) on the sideline. With the game spiralling out of control, Knight was inserted into the lineup and once again flashed his upside with a well-rounded performance. While he is a long way off being a consistent fantasy asset, he is a name to watch, especially in deeper formats.
Knight (ankle) is available for Saturday's game against the Lakers, Brad Rowland of PeachtreeHoops.com reports. Knight sustained a left ankle sprain during Thursday's win over the Thunder, but he'll be able to suit up against Los Angeles on Saturday. Across his past three appearances, Knight has averaged 11.7 points and 5.0 rebounds over 19.0 minutes per game.
Knight is questionable for Saturday's game against the Lakers due to a left ankle sprain, Kevin Chouinard of the Hawks' official site reports. Knight played just 12 minutes in Thursday's win over Oklahoma City, and he apparently sustained an ankle injury during the matchup. If he's unable to play Saturday, Onyeka Okongwu could see increased run for Atlanta.
Knight finished Tuesday's win over Houston with 15 points (6-9 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 2-2 FT), three rebounds and a block in 22 minutes. With Clint Capela (heel) sitting out, the Hawks once again slid John Collins up to center while Knight filled in as the top option off the bench. Over the last two games sans Capela, he's compiled 31 points, 12 rebounds, three assists, three blocks and one steal in 45 total minutes. If Capela continues to miss time, Knight could remain an intriguing, albeit relatively low-ceiling, fantasy option in deeper formats.
Knight went off for 16 points (3-4 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 9-10 FT), nine rebounds, two assists, two blocks and a steal in Sunday's 100-82 win over the Cavaliers. The Hawks were without Clint Capela (foot), so Knight was able to play a career-high 23 minutes in his first extended action since mid-January. Knight has gone mostly unused this season, but after Sunday's performance he'll be worth monitoring in the event Capela misses multiple games.
