A former Kentucky standout could miss the entire upcoming NBA season with an injury.
Brandon Knight, a guard with the Phoenix Suns suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee last week in Florida, and could miss the entire season, the Suns confirmed.
Knight will have surgery to repair the knee soon.
Knight scored 11.0 points and dished out 2.4 assists per game last season with the Suns, his third team since entering the league. For his career, he’s averaging 15.2 points and 4.3 assists, but has missed big chunks of the last two seasons because of injury.
Knight played one season for John Calipari at UK in 2010-11 before being drafted No. 8 in the first round by the Detroit Pistons in 2011.
The 6-foot-3 guard also played for the Milwaukee Bucks.
