Pistons' Knight misses second straight game with knee injury

AUBURN HILLS — Pistons guard Brandon Knight missed his second straight game Saturday with a hyper-extended right knee. Knight had an MRI done, but it came back negative.

“Little swelling you can see it,” Pistons coach Lawrence Frank said. “He can’t really jump off of it. He doesn’t have total confidence in it. The MRI was more for precautionary reasons. It didn’t show anything other than what we already diagnoised it with. He’ll be day-to-day. He’ll be taking some medication and just kind of see how he does in terms of trying to get the swelling down.”

Knight is averaging 13.6 points, 4.3 assists and 3.4 rebounds this season.

Friday marked the first game Knight missed in his two seasons with Detroit. The second-year guard is known as a hard worker, but it remains unclear when he will return.

“He was in the facility all day (Saturday), treatment and shooting some shots, see how it feels,” Frank said. “They’ll give him whatever medications they give, whatever treatment and rehab. Until he’s cleared, he obviously won’t be doing anything.”
