Pistons' Brandon Knight Hyperextends Knee, Listed As Day-to-Day

Detroit Pistons' second-year guard Brandon Knight has been listed as day-to-day after hyperextending his knee against the Bobcats as well as twisting his ankle. Knight injured his right knee after Kemba Walker fell on it during the third quarter, which was later diagnosed as a hyperextension. Knight later tried to return to the game but promptly twisted his ankle forcing him to hobble off the court. On trying to return to the game, David Mayo of MLive reports that Knight said:
"I think I was just trying to compensate and wasn't really ready to go back out there, just wanted to. God found a way to sit me down."
Coach Lawrence Frank explained the Knight was allowed back into the game because the doctors had cleared him to play, although they added that if Knight was going to be used, he should be used at that moment. Knight ended the game with 21 points.

The Pistons listed Knight as day-to-day. As for how he was feeling, Knight relayed a positive response.
"I assume I'll be fine," he said. "I always think I'll be ready to play. I'll just get treatment and see what Arnie says."
For the season, Knight is averaging 13.6 points on 40.9% shooting to go with 4.3 assists and 3.4 rebounds in 31 minutes per game. All of those are increases from his rookie season, where he played about a minute more per game.
