Description: Milwaukee guard Brandon Knight, a late scratch Saturday, made it through the shootaround and is expected to play against Toronto, according to Charles Gardner of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
Insight: Knight (17.7 ppg, 4.9 apg, 3.5 rpg) and Ramon Sessions (12.3 ppg, 4.1 apg) should eat up most of the guard minutes.

Insight: It's been frustrating to own Bucks players this season because the team has a habit of reporting injuries at the last possible minute. Either way, Ramon Sessions (12.2 ppg, 4.0 apg) will get the start at point guard while Knight (17.7 ppg, 4.9 apg, 3.5 rpg) sits out with a hip injury.
 
3/27/2014 10:48:00 PM
Description: After shooting 5-of-24 the last two games, Bucks PG Brandon Knight bounced back with 30 points on 12-of-21 shooting Thursday against the Lakers.
Insight: Knight was due for a cool-down period after averaging 20.8 ppg in 22 contests from Feb. 1 to March 20. It's good to see the cold streak didn't last too long.
 
3/16/2014 4:07:00 PM
Description: Milwaukee point guard Brandon Knight gave the Bobcats all they could handle on Sunday.
Insight: Knight totaled 21 points, eight rebounds, seven assists and three steals. He's averaged 19.0 ppg on 45.3 percent shooting during the Bucks' four-game losing streak.
 
Hot2/23/2014 9:19:00 AM
Description: Bucks guard Brandon Knight returned from a heel laceration to score 30 points with eight assists, five rebounds and three triples Saturday against the Pacers.
Insight: Knight played 39 minutes Saturday after sitting out Thursday. In his last 30 games, the 22-year-old has put up 20.2 points, 5.7 assists, 3.7 rebounds, 1.9 threes and 1.1 steals per game. His numbers are very similar to the man he was traded for, Brandon Jennings, but he's making nearly $4 million less than the Pistons guard this season.
 
2/22/2014 8:35:00 PM
Description: Bucks guard Brandon Knight is starting Saturday's game.
Insight: Knight sat out Thursday with a cut on his heel and was a true game-time decision Saturday, as the team didn't make a decision until after he warmed up.

Description: Brandon Knight's cut foot seems to be improving. He's hopeful about playing Saturday versus Indiana. SOURCE: C.F. Gardner, Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel
Insight: Nate Wolters started in his place Thursday against Denver. Knight has posted 20 or more points in five of his last seven games. If he's playing Saturday, you'd be wise to start him.
 
2/20/2014 8:07:00 PM
Description: Bucks guard Brandon Knight won't compete Thursday against Denver. SOURCE: Andrew Gruman, Fox Sports Wisconsin
Insight: Knight injured his heel in the shower earlier this week and will need a couple more days to heal up (no pun intended). This would have been a good spot for Gary Neal but he was traded to Charlotte earlier today. Instead Nate Wolters will start at the point with Caron Butler slotting in as the two-guard.

Description: Milwaukee point guard Brandon Knight is active for Tuesday's game against Orlando. SOURCE: Charles Gardner, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
Insight: Knight's status had been in question after cutting his foot in the shower. He's scored 20 or more in five of his last six games. Fantasy owners shouldn't hesitate to start him against a pitiful Magic squad.
 
Hot2/12/2014 10:33:00 PM
Description: Bucks guard Brandon Knight has scored 22 or more points in five of his last six games.
Insight: Knight has been the best player on the NBA's worst team, averaging 18.6 points, 5.1 assists and 3.9 rebounds per game since Nov. 29. He had 22 points and nine assists Wednesday against the Pelicans.
 
Hot2/2/2014 7:27:00 PM
Description: After dealing with a nagging hamstring strain the first month of the season, Bucks guard Brandon Knight has averaged 33 minutes, 18.1 points, 4.8 assists, 4.1 rebounds, 1.7 threes and 1.1 steals in his last 33 games.
Insight: Knight's injury limited him to six games and five ppg from Oct. 30 to Nov. 27, but he has been one of the bright spots on the worst team in the NBA. Knight is the only Bucks player whose role and minutes have remainded static.
 
Hot12/23/2013 9:46:00 PM
Description: Bucks point guard Brandon Knight again nearly had a triple-double Monday at Charlotte. He scored 26 points, handed out 14 assists and grabbed eight rebounds.
Insight: Knight had 17 points, 14 boards and eight assists Friday. He has averaged 17.7 points, 4.8 assists, 5.7 rebounds and 1.7 threes over his last 14 games.
 
12/20/2013 10:21:00 PM
Description: Bucks point guard Brandon Knight followed up his 36-point, nine-board effort Wednesday against the Knicks with 17 points, 14 rebounds, eight assists and three steals Friday at Cleveland.
Insight: Knight has averaged 16.8 points, 3.9 assists, 5.6 rebounds and 1.7 threes over his last 12 games after struggling with a hamstring injury the first month of the season.
 
12/19/2013 9:55:00 AM
Description: Bucks point guard Brandon Knight was sensational Wednesday in a loss to New York.
Insight: Knight went off for 36 points on 13-of-25 shooting. The eight turnovers he committed were a product of playing a season-high 50 minutes. Knight won't have nearly as much responsibility on offense when O.J. Mayo, who is away from the team due to a death in the family, is able to play again. That could be as soon as Friday night in Cleveland.
 
12/6/2013 10:12:00 PM
Description: Milwaukee guard Brandon Knight has averaged 29 minutes, 16.8 points, 5.0 assists, 4.6 rebounds and 1.4 steals over his last five games.
Insight: He's finally healthy after dealing with a nagging hamstring strain over the first few weeks of the season and is firmly ahead of Luke Ridnour and Nate Wolters on the depth chart. In Friday's OT win at Washington, Knight had 20 points, six assists, six rebounds and three steals in 33 minutes.
 
12/1/2013 10:29:00 AM
Description: Milwaukee guard Brandon Knight had a season-high 20 points, nine rebounds, eight assists and three threes Saturday against Boston.
Insight: Knight appeared to be going back on the shelf when he aggravated his hamstring injury on Nov. 27, but he has played the last two games and averaged 30.5 minutes, 18.5 points, 6.0 rebounds, 5.0 assists, 1.5 steals and 2.0 threes. Luke Ridnour has played just 35 minutes total in that span.
 
11/29/2013 6:27:00 PM
Description: Milwaukee guard Brandon Knight is back in the starting lineup after aggravating a hamstring injury in his last outing Wednesday against the Wizards. SOURCE: Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
Insight: It's only Knight's fourth start of the season. The third-year guard from Kentucky hasn't been able to find any rhythm on offense, averaging just 5.0 ppg in six contests.
 
11/28/2013 2:02:00 PM
Description: Bucks point guard Brandon Knight appeared to aggravate his sore right hamstring late in regulation Wednesday and didn't play in overtime. SOURCE: jsonline.com
Insight: Knight has been limited to six games and 19.5 mpg this season due to the hamstring strain he suffered in the season opener. He can be dropped in all leagues, as the Bucks will be rotating five players in the backcourt when Knight is healthy, including O.J. Mayo, Luke Ridnour, Nate Wolters and Gary Neal.
 
11/23/2013 7:36:00 PM
Description: Bucks point guard Brandon Knight will return to the lineup Saturday against Charlotte. SOURCE: Bucks PR
Insight: He's only expected to play about 20 minutes after missing the previous five games with a hamstring injury. Knight certainly has the talent to be an elite fantasy point guard but we wouldn't trust him until he can actually play a few games without getting hurt.
 
11/22/2013 4:40:00 PM
Description: Milwaukee guard Brandon Knight (hamstring) is doubtful for Friday's game against the 76ers.
Insight: Knight has been limited to three games and 40 minutes all season by the hamstring injury he suffered in the season opener. Luke Ridnour made his first start of the season Wednesday and will split minutes with Knight when both are healthy, with rookie Nate Wolters also getting some minutes. Ridnour should be owned in most leagues until Knight returns.
