The Pistons can't seem to go without a masked man.

Pistons rookie guard Brandon Knight broke his nose early in Saturday's victory over New Orleans and wasn't at practice Monday due to preparation for his latest accessory.

"He was fit for a mask early this morning," Pistons coach Lawrence Frank said. "He'll get an actual mask this afternoon and we'll go from there."

Former guard Richard Hamilton famously wore a mask for years, and Charlie Villanueva donned one during his first season in Detroit after breaking his nose.

There's a good chance Knight will be available for Wednesday's game in New Jersey, and he could have some company.
