Brandon Knight (groin) and Ersan Ilyasova (knee) are both available to play against the Wolves on Wednesday.
He missed over one week with his groin injury and it's unclear if he'll be limited tonight. Nobody stepped up while Knight was on the shelf, so he is expected to start at point guard. Fantasy owners can target him in the later rounds of drafts. Oct 22 - 6:22 PM

Date:

Brandon Knight (groin) and Zaza Pachulia (hamstring) will not play against the Knicks on Monday.

Knight has been out for over a week now with his strained right groin, but there's still hope for him to play in the season opener. Kendall Marshall hasn't played well sans Knight and is shooting just 4-of-15 in his last three games, so Knight still looks like the favorite to start at point guard. Knight is only a late-round target due to a lower upside.
Oct 20 - 11:59 AM

Brandon Knight (groin) unsure if he'll play Friday.

He will make the trip with the team to Cedar Rapids and New York, so the possibility remains that he will suit up for the Bucks' upcoming preseason games. Knight did say that his groin is feeling better and there doesn't seem to be a concern over him missing any regular season action.
Oct 16 - 2:34 PM

Brandon Knight (groin) did not practice on Wednesday.

He's been out since Monday with his groin strain and downplayed the injury on Wednesday. Knight doesn't have a history of groin issues, but his injuries tend to linger more than most players. He's a possible late-round target in standard leagues and should be ready to go for the regular season.
Oct 15 - 2:37 PM

Brandon Knight (strained right groin) did not practice Monday, and will not play in Tuesday's preseason game vs. Cleveland.

This is the first time we're hearing about a groin injury, so hopefully this is more of a precautionary move than anything else. Knight can be a cheap source of some 3s, steals, assists, and points, and he makes for a decent value pick in the later rounds of drafts in standard leagues.
Oct 13 - 2:47 PM

Brandon Knight came off the bench against the Pistons on Thursday and had 11 points, two rebounds, seven assists, two steals and four turnovers.

Coach Jason Kidd is just experimenting with his lineup and Knight is still the favorite to start. He clearly wants to be the point guard of this team because he's said so and already has 13 assists in his two games. He's a lower-upside player to grab late in drafts.
Oct 9 - 10:45 PM

Brandon Knight started at point guard on Wednesday and had 11 points, six assists, a steal, a block and two 3-pointers on 4-of-9 shooting.

He played 31 minutes and while there have been concerns about Kendall Marshall stealing his job, we doubt it happens. He's not a top-tier point guard, but Knight should be a nice value pick in the middle rounds of your draft, as long as the Bucks stick with him.
Oct 9 - 12:52 AM

Bucks coach Jason Kidd mentioned Brandon Knight as one of the Bucks' five best players, and suggested he doesn't need a pure point guard on the court at all times.

"We get caught up in labeling, but I want the best five players out there with six minutes left in the fourth quarter, that's when games are won and lost," Kidd said. "Whether you have a true point guard or not isn't as important." Knight may be best-suited playing off the ball more this year, opening up minutes for Kendall Marshall and Nate Wolters at PG, but there are no indications that Knight will lose his starting job.
Oct 8 - 10:49 AM

Brandon Knight said he's a point guard and is "going to be on the court as a point guard."

"I know I'm going to be on the court because I'm going to show it in training camp, like I showed last year and like I show all the time," Knight said. There's a chance he moves over to shooting guard and coach Jason Kidd said he could use a committee at the point this season. Knight isn't very efficient and doesn't do much on the stat sheet besides score, so he's only a late-round pick in standard formats.
Sep 30 - 1:39 AM

Brandon Knight could be playing more minutes at shooting guard this season with the addition of Kendall Marshall.

He played next to Nate Wolters quite a bit last season and actually posted better numbers. Knight had higher efficiency and assist percentages next to Wolters while his usage rate was down. Plus, he ranked last in assist:turnover ratio in his last season with the Pistons before he lost his starting job to Jose Calderon. The Bucks are a bit of a mess right now and they could even ask Giannis Antetokounmpo to play some point guard. The Bucks also added Jerryd Bayless. A messy rotation in Milwaukee certainly wouldn't be a change from last season and that's exactly where we're headed.
Jul 19 - 7:22 PM

Brandon Knight traveled to Rome this month for the NBA's Basketball Without Borders program.

He's also been in the news for trade rumors with the Kings possibly willing to part with their eighth pick in the draft. Knight was by far the Bucks' most consistent player, but the team is likely the best bet for the worst record next season and it makes some sense to dissemble their current roster. His fantasy value would probably hold up better with the Bucks due to a higher usage rate.

Brandon Knight hit 12-of-18 shots and three 3-pointers for 31 points, seven rebounds and four assists in Wednesday's loss to the Hawks.

Knight had a great season when he was healthy and the Bucks are going to stay in Milwaukee for the foreseeable future after today's sale was finalized. John Henson came off the bench for 19 points and a full stat line and Khris Middleton stayed hot with 16 points, seven rebounds and two 3-pointers. The Bucks season, mercifully, is over.
Apr 16 - 11:20 PM

The Bucks will make a "major announcement" at the Bradley Center on Wednesday, and they're expected to announce the sale of the franchise.

Owner Herb Kohl has made keeping the team in Milwaukee a pre-condition to any sale, so presumably the new ownership group will keep the team in town. We'll have more details after the announcement at 2:30 ET.
Apr 16 - 1:09 PM

Brandon Knight (hip) played in Monday's loss to the Raptors, scoring 18 points on 7-of-17 shooting (including a three) with two rebounds, four assists, two steals and one block.

The loss gives the Bucks control of the league's worst record and a 25 percent shot at drawing the No. 1 pick this summer. They also became the third team in NBA history to not win consecutive games in a season. Ramon Sessions added 21 points, five assists, two threes and a steal and Jeff Adrien went for 19 and nine with a steal, as those two should be in most lineups. Zaza Pachulia scored six points with four rebounds, three assists and one block in 17 minutes, and John Henson scored 12 points with seven rebounds and one block in 27 minutes, as the two big men are more speculative plays on Wednesday.
Apr 14 - 10:06 PM

Brandon Knight (hip) went through shootaround on Monday and he will return to action vs. the Raptors.

It's nice to get a timely, positive Bucks update for once, especially this late in the season. He and Ramon Sessions have been logging heavy minutes in the Bucks' backcourt in recent weeks, and that's unlikely to change vs. Kyle Lowry and the Raptors.
