Brandon Knight suffers ‘significant’ ankle sprain


Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports:

"X-rays negative on Detroit guard Brandon Knight’s left ankle, but injury appears to be a "significant" sprain, league source tells Y!"

Brandon Knight played just four minutes against the Jazz last night before spraining his ankle, and judging by that report, it sounds like he’ll miss more games. Knight was on crutches and in good spirits, according to Keith Langlois of, and the latter is good to hear. Hopefully, the Pistons allow Knight a chance to heal fully, unlike when they rushed him back earlier this season.

It would be nice for Knight to get more experience at shooting guard, but if he can’t return, that’s OK, too. This season can’t end fast enough.
