Brandon Knight to be out ‘awhile’


Vince Ellis of the Detroit Free Press:

"Assistant coach Brian Hill later confirmed what was apparent — Knight won’t quickly recover from a left sprained ankle he suffered Monday night at Utah."He’s got pretty good swelling in it still," Hill said at the Sports Club/LA. "It’s probably going to be something that’s going to take awhile.""

If you’re looking for a positive slant to the injury – besides the Pistons’ lottery odds improving – Keith Langlois of has you covered:

"BK7 is off his crutches and going through some rehab drills with Arnie Kander and Andre Drummond post shootaround"
