Cavaliers' Brandon Knight: Back in double digits
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Knight supplied 13 points (6-9 FG, 2-2 3Pt), two assists, one rebound and one steal across 32 minutes in the Cavaliers' 116-110 loss to the Spurs on Thursday.

Knight snapped out of a three-game slump that saw him score seven points or fewer in each contest to get back into double digits with a stellar shooting effort. The veteran guard had shot 33.3 percent or worse in that trio of contests, but Thursday's 66.7 percent success rate was his best since Feb. 9. Knight's minutes were also at their highest point of the season Thursday, and it remains to be seen if he'll continue logging a similar allotment of playing time for what remains of the campaign.

Cavaliers' Brandon Knight: Tallies 13 points Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Knight produced 13 points (5-12 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 1-1 FT), four assists and two rebounds across 26 minutes in Wednesday's 107-102 win over the Bucks.

The guards got it done for the Cavs on Wednesday, as the only three players to score in double-digits, in what turned out to be a win for the team, were guards. Knight definitely was a part of the strong backcourt performance, delivering the strongest plus-minus of the starters.

Cavaliers' Brandon Knight: Plays 19 minutes in Saturday's win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Knight tallied four points (2-5 FG, 0-3 3Pt), five assists, two rebounds, and one steal in 19 minutes during Saturday's 112-107 win over the Grizzlies.

Knight has earned 20-plus minutes only once in his last four games as a starter. He handed out a season-high five dimes in this one, but Knight is best reserved for use in the deepest leagues.

Cavaliers' Brandon Knight: Joins starting five
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Knight is starting at shooting guard Monday against the Knicks, FOX Sports Ohio reports.

Knight will be rewarded with a spot in the starting lineup after scoring nine points in 12 minutes during his Cavs debut over the weekend. The guard has only surpassed 10 minutes on seven occasions this season, averaging 5.3 points and 1.4 assists in 13.7 minutes during those contests, so it would be unwise to expect much from Knight right away.

Cavaliers' Brandon Knight: Should dress Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Knight isn't listed on the Cavaliers' injury report and is expected to be available for Saturday's game against the Pacers.

After being shipped to Cleveland in a three-team deal that was completed Wednesday, Knight was slated to join the Cavaliers in Washington in advance of Friday's 119-106 loss to the Wizards. However, he wasn't able to catch a flight into the nation's capital until after the Cavs' morning shootaround, prompting coach Larry Drew to hold Knight out of the game, per Chris Fedor of The Cleveland Plain Dealer. Now that he's at least had a day to get acclimated with his team, Knight should at least dress for Saturday's contest, though it's possible he's withheld from the rotation until he has a chance to practice with the Cavaliers.

Cavaliers' Brandon Knight: Will not play Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Knight will not make his Cavaliers debut in Friday's game against Washington, Joe Gabriele of the Cavaliers' official site reports.

Knight, along with Marquese Chriss, was traded to the Cavaliers on Wednesday in a three-team deal. The point guard has appeared in just 12 games this season and played under 10 minutes per game with Houston, and chances are he won't see a much bigger role in Cleveland given the team's focus on rookie point guard Collin Sexton and his development.

Cavaliers' Brandon Knight: Headed to Cleveland
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Knight has been traded to Cleveland in a three-team trade that will send Iman Shumpert to the Rockets and Alec Burks to the Kings, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

Knight hasn't seen much action this season, playing in just 12 games and averaging just 9.8 minutes. It's unclear what Knight's role will be in Cleveland, but it likely won't be a large role, as the Cavaliers will likely continue to rely on rookie Collin Sexton running the point.

Rockets' Brandon Knight: Available to play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Knight (knee) is available for Sunday's game against Orlando, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Knight has missed seven straight games with a left knee injury, but he evidently feels good enough to give it a go. With Chris Paul returning from injury and rejoining the starting lineup, Austin Rivers will be the first point guard off the bench, although Knight could also see some run to get him back into the swing of things.

Rockets' Brandon Knight: Questionable Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Knight (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Magic, Alykhan Bijani of The Athletic reports.

Knight's missed the past seven games due to soreness in his left knee. An official designation on his availability will be given prior to game-time Sunday, but even if he's able to go, he'll likely see a reduced role as Chris Paul (hamstring) is also slated to return.

January 25, 2019 06:24 PM
Rockets' Brandon Knight: Listed out Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Knight (knee) is listed as out for Friday's game against the Raptors. He will be available Sunday against the Magic.

This will be Knight's seventh straight absence while he continues to nurse some left knee soreness. Even though he's set to return Sunday, so is Chris Paul, which will limit Knight's possible minutes.

Rockets' Brandon Knight: Listed as questionable Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Knight (knee) is questionable for Friday's game against the Raptors, Mark Berman of Fox 26 Houston reports.

Knight has a chance to return after missing the past six games due to left knee soreness. The Rockets will likely wait and see how Knight is feeling following Friday's shootaround, so look for his status to clear up closer to game-time.

January 22, 2019 04:24 PM
Rockets' Brandon Knight: Listed out Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Knight (knee) won't play Wednesday against the Knicks, Mark Berman of Fox 26 Houston reports

Knight is slated to miss his sixth straight contest due to left knee soreness, and it's unclear as to when he might return to action. His next chance to do so will come Friday against the Raptors.

Rockets' Brandon Knight: Upgraded to questionable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Knight (knee) will be a game-time decision for Monday's game against Philadelphia, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Knight has missed four straight contests due to lingering knee soreness, although he appears to be trending in the right direction. A decision on his availability likely won't be made until closer to tipoff.

January 18, 2019 07:04 PM
Rockets' Brandon Knight: Remains out Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Knight (knee) has been ruled out for Saturday's game against the Lakers, Alykhan Bijani of The Athletic reports.

Knight is slated to miss his fourth straight contest due to left knee soreness. He'll have a chance to return Monday against the 76ers.

January 15, 2019 12:48 PM
Rockets' Brandon Knight: Out again Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Knight (knee) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Nets, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports.

This will be Knight's third straight absence with left knee soreness, as it looks like the Rockets are continuing to be extra cautious with the point guard given his history. Austin Rivers and James Harden will continue handling all the primary ball-handling duties for Houston with Knight out of the lineup.

Rockets' Brandon Knight: Will miss second straight game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Knight (knee) is out for Monday's game against Memphis, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Knight is slated to sit out for the second straight contest due to left knee soreness. The issue doesn't appear overly serious, however, and the Rockets are likely being cautious given Knight's offseason knee surgery. He'll have a chance to return Wednesday against Brooklyn.

January 14, 2019 01:00 PM
Rockets' Brandon Knight: Officially questionable Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Knight (knee) is listed as questionable for Monday's matchup against Memphis, Alykhan Bijani of The Athletic reports.

Knight, who missed his 27th game Sunday due to knee soreness, has been hampered with knee problems so far this season as he tries to recover from off-season knee surgery. Officially ruled as questionable though, it remains hopeful that Knight will play versus the Grizzlies on Monday.

January 13, 2019 04:48 PM
Rockets' Brandon Knight: Ruled out Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Knight (knee) has been ruled out of Sunday's game against the Magic, John Denton of OrlandoMagic.com reports.

Knight saw 18 minutes in the Rockets last game, tying a season high, so his absence could have some affect on the rotation. Austin Rivers and Gerald Green will likely see extra run in his place. Knight's next opportunity to play will be Monday against the Grizzlies, and he should be considered questionable for that contest.

January 12, 2019 06:00 PM
Rockets' Brandon Knight: Questionable with knee soreness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Knight is questionable for Sunday's game against the Magic due to left knee soreness.

Knight tied his season-high 18 minutes Friday against the Cavs, posting 12 points, four rebound and four assists. However, he's emerged with knee soreness and may not be able to play Sunday. If he's out, Austin Rivers and Gerald Green could see more run.

Rockets' Brandon Knight: Returns from G League
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Rockets recalled Knight from the G League's Rio Grande Valley Vipers on Sunday, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Out of the rotation for the Rockets' past three games following the signing of Austin Rivers, Knight made a brief detour to the G League to pick up playing time. He suited up in Rio Grande Valley's 108-79 win over the Texas Legends on Saturday, finishing with 14 points (5-12 FG, 4-8 3Pt), three assists, one steal and one rebound across 23 minutes. Now back with Houston, Knight should dress for Monday's game against the Grizzlies but may not see the floor if the game is competitive throughout.
