Brandon Knight scored 27 points against the Wizards on Saturday with five rebounds, six assists, one steal, one block, three 3-pointers and five turnovers.
He was grabbing his thigh before he went to the locker room in the first half, but he came back out and it didn't seem to bother him. Knight should be good to go, but it wouldn't be a surprise to see him miss practice. Nov 23 - 1:23 AM

Brandon Knight made 5-of-20 from the field for 18 points against the Nets during a 122-118 win on Wednesday, adding three rebounds, eight assists, two boards and two 3-pointers in 49 minutes.

He missed a wide-open breakaway layup at the end of overtime, but he redeemed himself in the last two frames. Missed layup aside, Knight has 17 dimes in his last two games and his steals are also up, so his fantasy owners are playing with house money right now with his top-40 value. He won't be this high all season.
Nov 20 - 1:18 AM

Brandon Knight kept up his torrid pace with 24 points on 9-of-17 shooting, six rebounds, five assists, one steal, two threes and two turnovers in Friday's loss to the Magic.

Knight is a top 15-50 play (8/9 cat) this season and his consistency has been notable playing for flighty Jason Kidd. He's probably going to chill out on the 4.0 turnovers per game he brought into tonight, while his 87.8 percent foul shooting is certainly suspect with his best season checking in at 80.2 percent. His rebounding and assist numbers are way up, but it's possible that a role change under Kidd is bringing him good fortune.
Nov 14 - 10:28 PM

Brandon Knight had 16 points, four assists, four boards, one steal and one 3-pointer in 34 minutes.

Fresh off of a game-winner on Saturday, Knight kept it rolling and has looked solid early on this season. He is still considered a sell-high candidate, as he has struggled with consistency throughout his short career. Regardless, congrats are in order if you rolled the dice on him this season.
Nov 12 - 12:07 AM

Brandon Knight was fouled on a made layup and made the subsequent free throw with one second left to help his team beat the Grizzlies 93-92 on Saturday, scoring a total of 14 points, three rebounds, six assists and one 3-pointer in 23 minutes.

It was the second game-winning shot of his career, but this was actually his worst line of the month and also a season-low in minutes. It may have been due to his six turnovers, which has been a major problem in Knight's career. He's really the only sure thing in coach Jason Kidd's rotating rotation.
Nov 9 - 1:31 AM

Brandon Knight filled it up again with 17 points on 5-of-11 shooting (1-of-2 3PTs, 6-of-6 FTs) with six rebounds and nine assists in Friday's loss.

Knight had five turnovers and did not record a steal or block, but his popcorn stats have always been his strength and he's been on fire this year. A top 8-15 value (8/9 cat) so far, he's certainly a sell-high candidate but owners shouldn't treat this as a total fluke.
Nov 8 - 1:42 AM

Brandon Knight made just 3-of-15 from the field against the Bulls during a 95-86 loss on Wednesday, scoring 10 points with nine rebounds, seven assists and five steals.

His fantasy owners can't complain with the boards, dimes and steals. Knight is really the only safe player to use with coach Jason Kidd mixing it up just about everywhere else. He's a bit of a sell-high candidate after his hot start.
Nov 5 - 11:06 PM

Brandon Knight led the Bucks with 23 points on 10-of-16 in Tuesday's road win, hitting two 3-pointers with seven rebounds, two assists, two steals and four turnovers in 29 minutes.

Knight's role under coach Jason Kidd was unclear during training camp, but he's obviously been given a green light offensively. In the Bucks' first three games he was averaging 19.7 points, 2.0 threes, 6.7 rebounds, 9.0 assists and 1.0 steals, while knocking down an impressive 87.5 percent of his 8.0 free throw attempts per game. He's not going to average 20/7/9 this season, and this has all the signs of a 'sell-high moment', but fantasy owners can't ask for more from a late-round pick.
Nov 4 - 9:36 PM

Brandon Knight is not worried about failing to reach a contract extension with the Bucks.

"I'm excited about the year," Knight said. "I'm pretty confident we'll do much better than last year. Once we revisit it (the contract) I hope it will be a better situation at the time. It's no pressure. You either get it (a contract) now or get it later, one or the other." Knight added that he loves the organization, but did say it made more sense to wait considering where he is in his career and where the club is as a team.
Nov 3 - 11:43 AM

Brandon Knight went off against the Wizards with 24 points, five rebounds, six assists, one steal and three 3-pointers in 38 minutes.

It's almost been nothing but positives for Knight with coach Jason Kidd. He has embraced the role of a ball-handler and he looks like he's bound for a big year in a bid for a contract. Although, he probably won't be this good, so feel free to try and sell high.
Nov 2 - 1:03 AM

Brandon Knight is set to become a restricted free agent after the Bucks failed to reach an agreement on a contract extension for the promising point guard.

He has played fantastic early on this season and has been a triple-double threat in his first two games. Knight appears to be locked in as the Bucks starting PG moving forward, and given the fact that this is a contract year, his owners could be in for quite a ride. Keep him plugged into all lineups.
Nov 1 - 10:28 AM

Brandon Knight kept his foot on the gas pedal with 13 points, seven rebounds, eight assists and two steals in Friday's win over the Sixers.

Knight hit just 2-of-8 shots from the field but did knock in 8-of-10 shots from the line while chipping in a three. Don't just attach this to the Sixers Bump, as he dropped a 22-8-13 line on the Bobcats on Wednesday. Knight could very well start and play above expectations all year long, but owners should at least entertain the idea of selling high while the going is very good.
Nov 1 - 12:59 AM

Brandon Knight and the Bucks have ended their contract extension talks.

He'll be in a contract year before he becomes a restricted free agent. Knight looked like a point guard in the opener with 13 dimes against the Hornets, so maybe he can have a career year under Jason Kidd.
Oct 31 - 3:26 PM

Brandon Knight hit just 5-of-17 shots, but also made 10-of-10 free throws and two 3-pointers on his way to 22 points, eight rebounds, 13 assists and a block in Wednesday's OT loss to the Hornets.

Knight, who played 39 minutes, was fantastic tonight and Kendall Marshall didn't even get off the bench. Knight has the starting job locked down after this one, and if he somehow isn't owned in your league, try to get him.
