    MCW looking great but PHX was expecting Knight to come back and contribute before the Anderson trade. Hope he can be another piece off our bench.

    No one forgot, he's just injured. Again.

    Haven’t forgot. He’s just not around due to injury. Not much to talk about.

    I do remember reading Phoenix wasn’t so sure how he’d return from his injury, though. Which is alarming but I’ll let him prove himself before judgement.

    Yes, everyone forgot because he's injured & don't know when he's coming back or what he'll look like.

    Ignore the negativity. He is definitely an exciting piece to have as an afterthought.

    The only thing I didn't forget is how big his contract is. :D

    I'm excited about having his salary to include in a deadline deal. Kent Bazemore, I'm looking at you!

    This Rockets team is a great, championship contending caliber squad. Without Knight.


    Personally, I feel like he is done. I'm not an insider or anything by any means, but multiple knee injuries, missing over an entire season, then getting re-injured again. Doesn't seem good.
    So we move on and prepare without him. His contract is better than Anderson's and will probably contribute as much as Anderson did. If we do end up getting anything out of him, it will be a pleasant additional surprise for our season

    i don't think it was another injury, they just went back and cleaned up his knee which is apparently a common procedure now post acl tears. and then he got some infection in there after the cleanup

    Didnt forget, but I can't say I'm excited when he is healthy to play. Seems like the rotation is pretty much set, unless MCW or Green suck it up (or there are injuries), I don't know how Knight gets into the rotation. Dantoni has a short rotation and at most he will do 9 players. I remember when he tried to do 10 players last year, but he gave up pretty quickly on that idea.

    Haha. I doubt this. If Phoenix was looking for him to contribute then they probably wouldn’t have traded him for Ryno. I don’t know how the trade went down, but I would bet 99% of my s**t it didn’t start with their front office saying “let’s figure out a way to get Ryno”

    Not trying to hate on Knight, but Phoenix definitely saw him as useless.

    The Rockets would be making a huge mistake if they are planning on him making any kind of significant contribution. I think they know its a long shot for him to be a key part of our success.

    Say Bazemore one more time. I dare you! I double dare you!

    Seriously...as cool as that would be, why does his name come up ALL the time??? Is there any reason to believe it is imminent? What yard line are we on?

    Just a reminder that he is not injured and just currently in rehabilitation I believe.

    Last procedure was before camp and it was just a "clean up" on the same knee.

    Does anyone know if it's just one knee or has he injured both before?

    This... he is like that kind of hot girl in high school that gained some weight in college... she hits you up at 30 years old on Facebook but all her pictures are airbrushed and old... you add her as a friend figuring maybe she posts a new picture and she cleaned herself up and you can plow her... you don’t really think she cleaned up... but you never know... maybe you get something out of it.

    Or something like that, I don’t know... I’m old now.
