Phoenix Suns guard Brandon Knight yesterday underwent successful surgery to treat a sports hernia. The surgery was performed by Dr. William Meyers in Philadelphia. Knight has already begun rehabilitation and will return to Phoenix next week.
Suns guard Brandon Knight’s season is ending early due to a health issue for a second consecutive season with Phoenix. Knight and the team made a collaborative decision to have him sit out the remainder of the season and get a second opinion this week on his sports hernia. Missing the past two games and the remaining five games puts Knight on an earlier timetable if it is determined that surgery is needed.
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.”
