Suns' head coach Jeff Hornacek said he is hopeful that Brandon Knight (ankle) will be able to return to the lineup for Friday's game vs. Portland.
Knight was running sprints, and played some one-on-one during Thursday's practice, and the Suns are currently listing him as the dreaded game-time decision. Owners will need to check back closer to Friday's tip, but if he is able to go, Marcus Morris' run with the starting unit will more than likely come to an end. Stay tuned. Mar 26 - 3:47 PM

Date:

Brandon Knight (ankle) will not play against the Kings on Wednesday.

He tried to warm up and just couldn't give it a go. Knight will have a chance to play on Friday and should be owned in all leagues now that he's close to a return. Marcus Morris will have another game to produce while Archie Goodwin may also help out more.
Mar 25 - 10:04 PM

Brandon Knight (ankle) didn't go through his normal pre-game routine before tip on Wednesday.

There is really nothing concrete out there and the most telling sign is that he wasn't going through layup lineups before the starting lineups were announced. The team could have an update soon, but it sounds like Knight is out tonight.
Mar 25 - 9:58 PM

Brandon Knight (ankle) could miss Wednesday due to his troublesome ankle injury.

He was hoping to play, but Knight didn't respond well to his ankle injury. We should have another update on his status momentarily.
Mar 25 - 9:12 PM

Brandon Knight (ankle) is hoping to play against the Kings on Wednesday and will likely be a game-time decision.

If Knight does play, he will likely come off the bench to keep his ankle loose. Once he does come back, Marcus Morris would lose some playing time along with guys like Archie Goodwin, T.J. Warren and A.J. Price. Knight should be stashed in all leagues with his imminent return.
Mar 25 - 2:04 PM

Brandon Knight (ankle) practiced on Tuesday, but remains questionable for Wednesday's game vs. the Kings.

Head coach Jeff Hornacek said that he's "leaning" towards keeping the same starting lineup for Wednesday's game, meaning if Knight is able to go, he would come off the bench. We'll continue to monitor this situation closely, and owners can expect to get another update on Knight following Wednesday morning's shootaround. Stay tuned.
Mar 24 - 4:12 PM

Brandon Knight (ankle) will not play on Sunday vs. the Mavericks.

He was considered doubtful, so there are no real surprises here. Knight is progressing well and was doing a lot of work out on the court prior to the game, so it looks like we could see him return to action on Wednesday vs. the Kings. Marcus Morris will remain in the starting lineup tonight and is worth deploying in all leagues.
Mar 22 - 8:54 PM

Brandon Knight (ankle) is doubtful for Sunday's game vs. the Mavericks.

Knight was seen getting some work out on the court prior to the game, but it looks like we won't see him back in action at least until Wednesday's game vs. the Kings. Marcus Morris will remain in the starting lineup if Knight sits again, and he is still worth owning in most leagues.
Mar 22 - 7:27 PM

Brandon Knight (ankle) will not play against the Rockets on Saturday.

He was doubtful to play and still hasn't gone through practice yet. With Knight out, Marcus Morris will get most of his playing time and the lion's share of his shots. He's struggled, but give him a look in standard leagues.
Mar 21 - 6:52 PM

Brandon Knight (ankle) is doubtful to play vs. the Rockets on Saturday.

Knight's ankle is improving, but his chances of playing tonight remain very slim and he remains without a timetable to return. If he can't play tonight, expect Marcus Morris to remain in the starting lineup and continue to be a must-start player in most leagues. Expect another update on Knight's status prior to tip-off.
Mar 21 - 1:15 PM

Brandon Knight (ankle) will not play against the Pelicans on Thursday.

Suns head coach Jeff Hornacek said Knight's injury is improving, but he did not go through shootaround and will not suit up against the Pelicans. We'll update his status prior to Saturday's game against the Rockets, but for now, Marcus Morris will get the start and see a boost in fantasy value on Thursday.
Mar 19 - 1:56 PM

Brandon Knight (ankle) did not practice on Wednesday and is unlikely to play on Thursday against the Pelicans.

He said his ankle "getting better, still a little bit sore" and he's been limited to "simple stuff" past two days. Knight is technically questionable right now, but we would be surprised to see him suit up. Marcus Morris is worth owning in standard leagues while Archie Goodwin will likely get some extra playing time.
Mar 18 - 4:11 PM

Brandon Knight (ankle) is questionable to play against the Pelicans on Thursday.

After being on crutches last week, Knight is doing some running on an anti-gravity treadmill, so there is a lot of progress. However, he's still not practicing yet and is closer to the doubtful side of this questionable tag on the surface. If he is out, Marcus Morris will benefit most and is worth a look in standard leagues. P.J. Tucker is an even stronger own while Archie Goodwin will look to build off a strong Sunday.
Mar 18 - 2:27 PM

Brandon Knight (ankle) did not participate during Tuesday's practice, and his status is uncertain for Thursday's game vs. the Pelicans.

Owners will want to check back for another update closer to Thursday's tip, and if he's unable to go, Eric Bledsoe will continue to log heavy minutes for Phoenix with Marcus Morris and T.J. Warren seeing increased opportunity on offense.

Brandon Knight (ankle) has been ruled out for Sunday against the Knicks.

It's not a good sign that he's already being ruled out a day early. Knight was on crutches earlier this week and one would think he is going to miss a week or more. His fantasy owners will have a tough decision to make on keeping him with 95 percent of that decision-making process being based on the fantasy situation -- like format, health of fantasy team, schedule, seed in playoffs and upcoming opponent. Marcus Morris finally came on during Friday's game and should be owned in standard leagues. Keep an eye on T.J. Warren and Archie Goodwin.
