Brandon Knight suffered a sprained ankle last night and did not come back into the game after the injury. He will be evaluated further, but it's a tough bow for a guy who made news for all the wrong reasons this weekend. Knight was dunked on by DeAndre Jordan in the most brutal fashion. Now, he's dealing with an injury.
Per Pistons PR, Brandon Knight suffered a left ankle sprain and will not return. #DETatUTA

The Pistons fell to the Jazz last night as Knight received treatment for his ankle. Detroit's starting point guard rolled the ankle and went down in obvious pain. It wasn't clear if he would be able to return at the time, but now it's not clear how long Knight will be out.
Knight has averaged 13.8 points and 4.1 assists per game this season. In his career, Knight has averaged 13.3 points and 4.0 assists.
