Suns guard Brandon Knight is nearing a return to the court after missing the past 20 games. Knight practiced in full for the first time on Tuesday, but Phoenix did not scrimmage five-on-five to let him get a complete sense of where he is as he works from his sports hernia injury. His status for Wednesday’s game against the Knicks at Talking Stick Resort Arena is still unknown. “Knowing when to pull back,” said Knight as he looks to become comfortable again. “Little things that irk it. Just trying to wait until your body tell you it’s ready to do certain things. And like I said that’s the biggest thing.”
Suns guard Brandon Knight said he will work out Monday with hopes of trying to practice Tuesday. The staff has said he would not be able to return to game action until he can scrimmage in a practice. Knight has been out seven weeks with a groin strain. “Lately, Brandon is moving around pretty well,” Watson said. “We’re just focused on the moment. When he’s ready to come back, we absolutely embrace him. We need him and we love Brandon Knight.”
Brandon Knight (groin strain) is still likely to not play until after the Suns’ Feb. 11-18 All-Star break. Knight has missed the past seven games.

CJ McCollum: I think it’s important we don’t lose sight of the fact that 90% of the league is vaccinated. Happy Monday.
Anthony Slater: Klay Thompson on the state of his game: “I can make a lot of jump shots. Pretty good at defensive sliding. My timing is a little off. Reaction time’s not there. That’s being rusty two years. I anticipate in the next four weeks playing 5-on-5 again.” pic.twitter.com/Nk9YDlfyGL
