  • Brandon Knight

The Suns announced Tuesday that point guard Brandon Knight suffered a torn ACL and they expect him to miss the 2018 season. They were one of the worst teams in the National Basketball Association last season with a 24-58 record that saw them finish at the 15th spot in the Western Conference. Knight reportedly tore the ligament last week during a pro-am game in Miami. The news came as a shock to the Phoenix Suns fans and Knight himself is obviously devastated. He was drafted by the Detroit Pistons and spent his first two seasons with the Pistons. Now, it appears that there's a chance Knight won't participate at all during the 2017-18 season as the result of an ACL tear in his left knee, which he suffered while playing in his native South Florida. A career 15.2 PPG, 4.3 APG and 41 percent shooter, Knight is a big loss to a Suns teams that continues to rebuild and Knight was set to be a key component this season.
