Houston Rockets guard Brandon Knight (knee) won't play in Saturday's game against the Los Angeles Lakers. This will be the fourth straight game that Knight has missed due to left knee soreness. Eric Gordon (knee) is back in the lineup, so Knight lost most of his playing time anyway. He belongs on the waiver wire in all formats right now.
The Houston Rockets will be without both point/shooting guard Brandon Knight and center Nene Hilario for Sundays contest versus the Orlando Magic. Knight is battling a sore left knee and will be held out, while Nene will be getting the game off due to rest purposes. Knight has been sparingly used off the bench for Houston as they attempt to re-insert him to their rotation, although until his minutes can tick up, he draws very little fantasy consideration. Nenes absence also likely doesnt move the needle, although it could potentially mean a few more minutes for starter Clint Capela without his traditional backup.
Houston Rockets point guard Brandon Knight (knee) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Magic due to left knee soreness. This is the same knee that kept him out for over a year. He has seen more court time recently as a result of Eric Gordon's absence. So, if the seventh-year pro is unable to go it will hurt the Rockets depth a little. Knight is coming off his best performance of the season, totaling 12 points along with four assists and four rebounds in 18 minutes on Friday. Still, the 27-year-old is not worth owning in most leagues.
