Pistons' Brandon Knight: Posts six points, six dimes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Pistons' Brandon Knight: Will play vs. Sixers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Pistons' Brandon Knight: Doesn't play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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).

Pistons' Brandon Knight: Will be available in limited role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Pistons' Brandon Knight: Status shaky for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Pistons' Brandon Knight: Good to go Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Knight (knee) is starting Saturday's game against the Jazz, James L. Edwards III of The Athletic reports.

The 28-year-old was probable with left knee soreness, so it's no surprise he'll be suiting up. Knight made his first start of the season Wednesday against the Thunder in place of Derrick Rose (ankle) and delivered 18 points, seven assists, two rebounds and two steals in 38 minutes.

Pistons' Brandon Knight: Probable Saturday vs. Jazz
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Knight is probable for Saturday's contest against the Jazz due to left knee soreness.

Knight played a season-high 38 minutes during the Pistons' most recent contest, so that may be where the knee soreness is stemming from. Across the past five games, he's averaging 16.4 points, 5.4 assists and 2.2 rebounds in 26.6 minutes.

Pistons' Brandon Knight: Scores 18, dishes seven
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Knight (quadriceps) had 18 points (6-15 FG, 4-9 3Pt, 2-2 FT), seven assists, two rebounds and two steals in 38 minutes during Wednesday's 114-107 loss to the Thunder.

Knight (quadriceps) had been listed as questionable but was able to give it a go. He saw heavy minutes with Bruce Brown (knee), Derrick Rose (ankle) and Luke Kennard (knee) all sidelined, and while Brown may return soon, Rose and Kennard aren't expected to be back quite as quickly. As such, Knight could continue receiving decent minutes so long as he can stay healthy. Moreover, Knight has scored in double figures in five straight games and has handed out seven assists in consecutive contests.

March 4, 2020 06:40 PM
Pistons' Brandon Knight: Starting vs. Thunder
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Knight (quadriceps) is starting Wednesday against the Thunder, Rod Beard of The Detroit News reports.

Knight picked up a quad injury earlier in the week but won't be forced to miss any time as a result. With Derrick Rose (ankle) unavailable, Knight will draw his first start of the season Wednesday. Over his last five games, he's averaging 12.8 points, 4.4 assists and 2.0 rebounds in 21.4 minutes.

Pistons' Brandon Knight: Questionable Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Knight is listed as questionable for Wednesday's contest against the Thunder due to a strained right quad, Rod Beard of The Detroit News reports.

While it is unclear when Knight picked up the injury, the guard's status is now in question for Wednesday's matchup with the Thunder. If he is forced to sit out, Derrick Walton, Langston Galloway and Khyri Thomas are all candidates to see extra minutes.

Pistons' Brandon Knight: Logs 16 points, seven dimes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Knight pitched in 16 points (5-12 FG, 5-10 3Pt, 1-2 FT), seven assists and three rebounds in 25 minutes during Sunday's 106-100 loss to the Kings.

Knight has reached double figures in scoring in four straight games, and he amassed a season high assist total as well. Bruce Brown (knee) was held out and Derrick Rose (ankle) exited after just nine minutes of action and didn't return. While it remains to be seen whether Brown or Rose will miss Wednesday's matchup versus the Thunder, if one or both are held out Knight would almost certainly be in line to benefit from a usage standpoint.

Pistons' Brandon Knight: Season-high 19 points in victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Knight posted 19 points (7-14 FG, 5-11 3Pt), four assists, two rebounds and one steal across 25 minutes during Friday's 113-111 victory over the Suns.

Knight scored a season-high 19 points Friday on the back of a season-high five triples. He's played well across the past three games, averaging 16.0 points, 4.3 assists and 2.0 rebounds in 23.3 minutes. If he continues to play like this, he'll warrant some waiver wire pickups.

February 26, 2020 09:16 AM
Pistons' Brandon Knight: Makes four threes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Knight registered 14 points (4-9 FG, 4-9 3Pt, 2-4 FT), six assists, two rebounds and one steal in 25 minutes off the bench during Tuesday's 115-98 defeat at Denver.

Knight is slowly finding a role in the team's rotation after debuting earlier this month and, while it's a small sample size, he has reached the 20-minute mark while scoring in double digits in each of his last two outings. That should bode well for his chances of becoming a reliable bench contributor for the Pistons down the stretch. As long as he gets consistent playing time, Knight should find a way to produce on the offensive end of the court.

Pistons' Brandon Knight: Scores 15 against Portland
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Knight finished with 15 points (4-8 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 4-4 FT), three assists and two rebounds across 20 minutes Sunday in the Pistons' 107-104 loss to the Trail Blazers.

Knight saw his most extensive playing time since being re-acquired by the Pistons earlier this month, reaching double figures in scoring for the first time along the way. The veteran guard looks like he'll retain a regular spot in coach Dwane Casey's rotation, at least until the Pistons get Luke Kennard (knees) back.

Pistons' Brandon Knight: Gets 13 minutes in team debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Knight (knee) recorded three points (1-4 FG, 1-4 3Pt) and one steal across 13 minutes off the bench Monday in the Pistons' 87-76 loss to the Hornets.

Knight saw his first NBA action in more than a month after being sidelined with a knee injury before being dealt to Detroit ahead of last week's trade deadline. The 28-year-old opened his second stint with the Pistons -- Detroit drafted him in 2011 -- in rather unimpressive fashion, which won't help his case for earning playing time moving forward. Considering he logged the fewest minutes of any of the 10 players Detroit used Monday, Knight will likely drop out of the rotation once any of Derrick Rose (hip), Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk (hip) or Luke Kennard (knee) return from injury.

Pistons' Brandon Knight: Ready for debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Knight (knee) is available for Monday's game against the Hornets.

Knight has yet to appear for the Pistons since being acquired from Cleveland earlier in the month, but he'll be available for Monday's game after missing the past 13 contests with a sore left knee. He's seen more than 15 minutes in eight games this season, averaging 6.5 points, 3.0 assists and 1.8 rebounds during those contests.

February 10, 2020 03:40 PM
Pistons' Brandon Knight: Questionable Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Knight (knee) is considered questionable for Monday's game against Charlotte, Keith Langlois of the Pistons' official site reports.

The veteran guard, who's missed the past 13 games with a sore left knee, has been upgraded to questionable. Though there's still a good chance he's held out, Knight appears to be on the mend and appears to be in line to make his Pistons debut sometime in the near future.

February 8, 2020 06:48 PM
Pistons' Brandon Knight: Out as expected
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Knight is out Saturday against the Knicks due to left knee soreness, Keith Langlois of the Pistons' official site reports.

As expected, Knight's Pistons debut will be put on hold as he works back from a left knee injury. His next chance to suit up arrives Monday against the Hornets.

February 8, 2020 03:12 PM
Pistons' Brandon Knight: Doubtful Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Knight (not injury related) isn't expected to make his Pistons debut in Saturday's game against the Knicks, James L. Edwards III of The Athletic reports.

It's unclear what's keeping Knight from the court as the veteran point guard appears to be with the team and isn't known to be suffering from any injury issues. An absence for Knight won't have much of an impact on the Pistons' rotations as he's projected to serve mostly as rotational depth for his new team.

February 7, 2020 03:24 PM
Pistons' Brandon Knight: Won't debut Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Knight (not injury related) will not make his Pistons debut Friday against the Thunder, Rod Beard of The Detroit News reports.

As expected, Knight isn't with the team yet. It's unclear if he'll be able to play Saturday against the Knicks.
