Point/shooting guard Brandon Knight and power forward/center Marquese Chriss are again on the move, reportedly heading to the Cleveland Cavaliers as a part of a three-team deal Wednesday. Knight has appeared in just 12 games this season off the bench for Houston, last appearing Jan. 11 as he makes his way back from a knee injury that cost him the entire 2017-18 year. Chriss was the No. 8 overall pick in the 2016 NBA Draft and could benefit from the reset on his career. He averaged just 6.5 minutes per game across 16 contests for Houston, but is still 21 years old and could find his way into the rotation for Cleveland sooner rather than later. The Cavs next play the Washington Wizards come Friday.
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.
