Brandon Knight is out of action with a hyperextended right knee. USA Today reported that an MRI on Knight's knee came back negative, showing swelling but no damage. But the second-year guard is on the shelf "for an undisclosed period of time."
Knight injured his knee and ankle in a win over the Charlotte Bobcats on Wednesday. He sat Friday and Saturday, and Pistons coach Lawrence Frank called Knight day-to-day and said he won't play until he's 100 percent. Rodney Stuckey and Will Bynum are both worth consideration, with the Pistons playing four games this week.
Stuckey started at shooting guard Saturday night and scored 11 points (3-of-8 shots and 5-of-5 free throws) to go with two rebounds, an assist and a steal. Not real exciting.
Before Bynum got tossed for a flagrant 2 foul, he scored 15 points (7-of-14 field goals and 1-of-1 free throws), grabbed three rebounds, handed out two assists and stole a ball. There's a chance the league could further punish Bynum, so keep an eye on that situation.

March is quickly approaching Detroit basketball fans, a month I earlier warned about. The Pistons will begin the month in the middle of a Washington, New Orleans, and San Antonio road trip then come home to find the playoff bound New York Knicks waiting for them. All this may be more magnified since Detroit has lost 3 of 4 since the All Star break while finishing a home and home...

Everyone knew it was coming. As soon as the Detroit Pistons' Will Bynum punched Tyler Hansbrough, the suspension was impending. It has now officially come down. Bynum has been suspended one game by the league for his actions. The shot was as flagrant as they get, but to the referees' credit, they were on top of things. Bynum was given a flagrant-two immediately...

Pacers. Pistons. Palace. Punches. The only thing missing was Ron Artest and a flying beer cup (such a waste).
History was nowhere near repeating itself Saturday night when there was a little violence during the Pacers/Pistons game. Rather than seeing a player dash into the stands after an unruly fan
it was one of the Pistons--Will Bynum--giving Pacers player Tyler Hansbrough...
