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.

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.
Apr 14 - 11:30 AM

Brandon Knight (hip) will not play against the Wizards on Saturday.

In typical fashion, this news wasn't announced until after the start of the game, which has been a popular move in Milwaukee. The extent of Knight's sore right hip is not yet known and hopefully the team will update him in the coming days -- don't hold your breath, though. Ramon Sessions will likely get all the minutes he can handle while Giannis Antetokounmpo gets moved into the starting lineup.
Apr 12 - 7:14 PM

Brandon Knight hit 8-of-21 shots and a 3-pointer for 25 points, four rebounds and 10 assists in Wednesday's loss to the Pacers' bench.

All five Bucks starters were pretty great individually, which tells you just how bad of a team they have. Of course the loss of Larry Sanders and Ersan Ilyasova, the disappearance of O.J. Mayo, and the coaching of Larry Drew are all to blame, but they're at least coming through for fantasy owners in the clutch. Knight has had a pretty solid season and has been the most reliable Buck this year.
Apr 10 - 12:07 AM

Brandon Knight scored 25 points on 7-of-21 shooting (0-for-4 3PTs, 11-of-14 FTs) with nine rebounds and seven assists in Monday's loss to the Pistons.

The Pistons aren't defending anybody these days and that will be a theme throughout the Bucks' box score, but Knight certainly did well to put up some big popcorn numbers tonight. He's averaging 17.6 points, 3.5 rebounds, 4.9 assists on the season, which would usually yield much more than the top 75-110 value (8/9 cat) he has returned when on the floor -- but 42 percent field goal shooting and just 1.2 combined steals and blocks per game otherwise drag him down.
Mar 31 - 11:39 PM

Brandon Knight took care of business against the Lakers during a 108-105 win on Thursday with 30 points, three assists, one block and two 3-pointers on 12-of-21 from the field.

The matchup was right on time after he put up 37 against the Lakers back on Dec. 31. He didn’t shoot over 25 percent in each of his last two games for his worst two-game stretch of the season. Knight was taking too many jumpers, but this season he’s been much better at getting to the rim with 32.0 percent of his shots coming from the restricted area and knocking down 55.0 percent of those. He’s been much better than expected in his first season with the Bucks.
Mar 27 - 11:08 PM

Brandon Knight made just 2-of-12 FGs in Sunday's ugly road loss, which he finished with six points, seven assists and two blocks.

Knight has been one of the most reliable Bucks players all season, but his mediocre steals (1.0 per game) combine with poor shooting (42.4 percent) and consistent turnovers (2.6) to make him a borderline top-100 value in nine-cat leagues. That's worth remembering on draft day next season, if nothing else.
Mar 23 - 8:46 PM

Brandon Knight made nine of his 16 attempts from the field for 27 points against the Warriors during a 115-110 loss with two boards, six assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 38 minutes.

He should have even more responsibilities with Nate Wolters (hand) likely out for the season. Wolters' usage rate wasn't eye-popping or anything at just 17.2 percent since the break, but there's a chance his loss will push Knight to a usage over 30.0, which is among the elite. Knight is sporting a 28.6 percent usage since the break before tonight and is really the only must-start player on the worst team in the NBA based on record.
Mar 21 - 1:50 AM

Brandon Knight hit 8-of-20 shots for 24 points, eight rebounds, four assists, two steals, a block and three 3-pointers in an overtime loss to the Blazers.

He had 21 points and a full stat line on Sunday and continues to roll along for the awful Bucks.
Mar 19 - 1:22 AM

Brandon Knight scored a team-high 21 points vs. the Bobcats during Sunday's 101-92 loss, adding eight boards, seven assists, three steals and three 3-pointers in 36 minutes.

He shot 9-of-21 from the field and is really the only player who has the same role on a daily basis. Fantasy owners should keep Knight locked into their lineups and he'll have a nice matchup against Damian Lillard on Tuesday. The Bucks are still in first place in the race for lottery balls with a 2.5 game lead over the Sixers and their 20-game losing streak.
Mar 16 - 4:21 PM

Brandon Knight scored 20 points vs. the Hawks during Thursday's 102-97 loss with five boards, four assists and one 3-pointer.

This was his fourth consecutive game of at least 20 points and he's actually been consistent, which is almost a shock after the roller coaster ride he went through to start the year. Knight made 7-of-8 from the line tonight and he's getting to the line a little more as the year has gone on. Fantasy owners can pencil him into their lineup the rest of the way.
