Injury partially explains Brandon Knights performance against Golden State

The clear topic throughout Wednesday’s Pistons game against the Golden State Warriors was what, exactly, was wrong with Brandon Knight, who had one of his worst games of the season. Knight has been dealing with a thigh bruise since the team’s loss to Dallas last Saturday, and according to Vince Ellis of the Detroit Free Press, the injury is still bothering him:

For the first time, he admitted it was bothering him.

“It feels like you are playing dead-legged,” Knight told the Free Press.

It’s clear Knight is the tough, silent type who would likely rather play through a painful injury rather than sound like he’s complaining about it. But the injury pretty clearly impacted his performance and cost the team in that game. Perhaps it’s worth resting him if it’s still bothering him.
