Knight had cleanup on knee, expects to be ready for season

Brandon Knight missed the entire 2017-18 season.

Point guard Brandon Knight, who missed the entire 2017-18 season, had a minor cleanup on his knee about six weeks ago and may not be ready for the start of training camp, but expects to be ready for the season, according to John Gambadoro of ArizonaSports.com.

Knight suffered a torn ACL in his left knee during the summer of 2017. Knight was reportedly traded from the Phoenix Suns to the Houston Rockets in a deal for forward Ryan Anderson.

Injuries have been a constant theme in Knight’s pro career. He underwent arthroscopic surgery on his left ankle in April of 2015 and has missed a plethora of games due to back ailments.

Knight, 26, has career averages of 15.2 points in 382 games with the Detroit Pistons, Milwaukee Bucks and Suns. The eighth overall pick in the 2011 draft will give the Rockets depth in the backcourt and is owed $14,631,250 in 2018-19 and $15,643,750 in 2019-20.
