Brandon Knight scored just 10 points in a loss to the Spurs on Sunday, adding five boards, five assists, one steal and two 3-pointers in 35 minutes.
He really struggled to take care of the ball tonight, turning it over five times while shooting just 4-of-15 from the field. It was also his lowest scoring output since Dec. 27, but he was able to play solid defense on Tony Parker throughout the game. However, Knight has been in the conversation as an Eastern Conference All-Star in what has been a breakout season for the young guard, so his owners should give him a pass. Expect him to bounce back against the Heat on Tuesday. Jan 25 - 9:35 PM

Brandon Knight hit just 7-of-21 shots in the Bucks' 92-89 loss to the Raptors on Monday, but still managed to finish with 20 points, five rebounds, five assists, four steals and one block.

Knight hit 2-of-7 from deep and 4-of-6 from the line as he keeps up his early round pace. The rest of the starting lineup sans Johnny O'Bryant held onto their late-round positions, with Giannis Antetokounmpo posting six points, three boards, five assists, three steals and a block. Khris Middleton scored nine points with six rebounds, two assists, one steal and one trey, and Zaza Pachulia put up nine points with six rebounds, two assists and three steals in the loss.

Brandon Knight was terrific in London against the Knicks on Thursday, scoring 20 points with five rebounds, six assists, two 3-pointers and a season-high six steals.

The Knicks just couldn't cover him and had a slew of careless turnovers tonight. Knight is on a roll over his last five, averaging 19.6 points, 3.0 boards, 4.8 assists, 2.4 steals and 2.0 triples on 48.6 percent from the field and 88.9 percent from the line. He's 23 and his posting fourth-round value in standard leagues, so maybe this is his breakout season after all.
Jan 15 - 8:31 PM

Brandon Knight scored a team-high 20 points against the Bulls on Saturday with five rebounds, five assists and one steal.

He's been coasting along this season and has been a second-round guy these days for owners in eight-category leagues. Coach Jason Kidd has likely helped Knight and his shot selection has seen a vast improvement.
Jan 11 - 12:55 AM

Jason Kidd is working to mentor Brandon Knight and hopes to mold him into a better point guard.

"He's 23 years old and you want him to go through trial and error," Kidd said. "Giving him advice about what I see could be different than what he sees. For me, giving him advice is more or less understanding time and score. Knowing when to go, when a team is struggling or who is going offensively, get them the ball. And he's done that for us all season." Knight's owners should continue to ride him as he's one of the only sources of stability in the Milwaukee lineup.
Jan 5 - 1:39 PM

Brandon Knight had 26 points, six rebounds, two assists, a steal, a block and four 3-pointers on 11-of-19 shooting in Wednesday's impressive win over the Cavs.

Knight's having a fantastic season (again) and if you played him over Chris Paul in daily leagues, you came out in pretty good shape.

Brandon Knight dropped a season-high 34 points in a loss to the Hornets on Tuesday, adding five assists, two boards, one steal and four 3-pointers in 34 minutes.

After scoring just eight points against the Clippers on Saturday, Knight responded in emphatic fashion, hoisting up 21 shots and connecting on 13 of them. There is no question that he has been the best player in Milwaukee this season, and there is no reason why he shouldn't be able to keep it up.

Brandon Knight scored a team-high 24 points during a 104-97 loss to the Blazers on Wednesday, adding three rebounds, two assists and two 3-pointers.

He made 10-of-19 from the field and turned the ball over four times for a usage rate of 34.0, which is Russell Westbrook territory and Knight's third highest of the season. Knight is not going to get a big increase in playing time, but his fantasy owners can expect him to take more shots.

Brandon Knight scored a team-high 22 points with four rebounds, five assists and three 3-pointers in 31 minutes during a 111-106 win over the Clippers on Saturday.

He played well on both sides of the ball and turned it around from a nine-point stinker against Russell Westbrook and the Thunder on Tuesday. Knight has been the most consistent player on the Bucks and should put up nice numbers all season. Interestingly, his scoring average is down from last year, but he's increased his averages in steals, boards, dimes, 3-pointers and foul shooting percentage.

The Thunder held Brandon Knight to single-digit scoring on Tuesday, as he finished with nine points on 2-of-10 shooting, two 3-pointers, three rebounds, three assists, one steal and three turnovers.

This was Knight's second game below 10 points all year and it doesn't obscure his reliable value -- it was also encouraging to see him log 31 minutes, as he'd averaged just 25.0 over Milwaukee's past two games.
Tue, Dec 9, 2014 11:36:00 PM

Brandon Knight remained the one constant in the Bucks rotation during a 107-105 loss to the Mavericks on Wednesday with 25 points, six rebounds, five assists, four steals and two 3-pointers.

He made 8-of-16 from the field and all seven from the line in one of his best games of the season. Knight's steals have really jumped up in his last five with 2.2 per game to go with 17.0 points, 3.8 boards, 4.4 assists and 2.0 triples. He's really the only player fantasy owners can expect to have some form of consistency on the Bucks.
Thu, Dec 4, 2014 12:39:00 AM

Brandon Knight bounced back from a few very quiet games with 27 points, six boards, eight assists and three steals vs. the Cavaliers on Tuesday.

Knight drained 10-of-18 shots including five 3-pointers in the tough road loss. He exceeded 30 minutes just once in Milwaukee's previous four games so it was nice to see him logging big minutes tonight, and fantasy owners shouldn't dwell on his recent mini-slump. He's headed for restricted free agency this summer and will earn a hefty deal if he keeps playing at this level during the Bucks' remaining 63 games.

Brandon Knight was quiet in Friday's win over the Pistons, scoring six points on 2-of-7 shooting with four rebounds, five assists and four turnovers in 27 minutes.

Jason Kidd rode a hot bench but Knight has been quiet for two games now and it's possible that his quad is bothering him. Durability has been an issue in the past for Knight and it's probably the only thing that can derail his early round value. Just keep an eye on the situation for now.

Brandon Knight (quad) scored 20 efficient points vs. Detroit on Tuesday, hitting 7-of-12 shots with three 3-pointers, three boards, eight assists and two steals.

Knight continues to impress in his fourth NBA season, averaging career-highs in points (18.1), FG percentage (43.7 percent), 3-pointers (1.7), rebounds (5.3), assists (6.4) and steals (1.2). His 3.7 turnovers per game take a toll in 9-cat leagues, but owners will happily live with that caveat considering he's demolishing his ADP.
Tue, Nov 25, 2014 10:55:00 PM

Brandon Knight (quad) will start Tuesday vs. the Pistons.

Knight was listed as questionable heading into this one, but it appears he'll give it a go. He's averaging 18.1 points, 6.4 assists, 5.3 rebounds, 1.2 steals, and 1.7 three-pointers per game this season, and has been a must-start guy this season. Get him active.
