Brandon Knight injured his right knee late in the third quarter of Wednesday night's win when Charlotte's Kemba Walker fell on top of it. Knight was stepping in from the perimeter to provide some help defense on Walker, who then lost control of his dribble and his balance before falling on top of Knight's right leg as Knight tried to scoop up the loose ball. It looked bad, like the kind of knee injury you see all the time in football that almost always knocks a player out for the rest of the game. Knight's official diagnosis, moments after writhing in pain on the floor for a few minutes, was a hyperextension of the right knee. He was questionable to return to the game. Yet, somehow, Knight evaded trainers and Lawrence Frank's common sense and checked back into the game in the fourth quarter. Knight only lasted a possession before winding up back on the floor in obvious pain and could barely walk upon attempting to "gut it out." He was replaced at the next timeout.
