Found March 14, 2013 on NBA Injury News:
Detroit Pistons' guard Brandon Knight is likely to miss more than a couple of games as he recovers from a sprained left ankle which he suffered in the same game he got posterized on by DeAndre Jordan. Vince Ellis of the Detroit Free Press reports that assistant coach Brian Hill thinks Knight's ankle will take some time to recover."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."During the team's practice today, Knight did nothing more than pass and catch the ball with Andre Drummond. Knight has been averaging 13.8 points per game on 41.3% shooting, numbers similar to his rookie season. His numbers all-around are very similar to his rookie year stats except that his usage percentage has increased slightly.Follow @hoopsinjurynews!function(d,s,id){var js,fjs=d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0];if(!d.getElementById(id)){js=d.createElement(s);js.id=id;js.src="http://www.nbainjurynews.com//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js";fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js,fjs);}}(document,"script","twitter-wjs");
