ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski has reported that Phoenix Suns guard Brandon Knight tore the ACL in his left knee and is likely to miss the entire 2017-18 NBA season.
The Suns later confirmed the horrible news, stating that Knight tore his ACL while playing at his home in South Florida. He will undergo surgery and the team says they expect him to miss the entire season.
The 25-year old guard averaged 11 points and 2.4 assists in a little over 21 minutes per game, in 54 appearances last season. He is under contract with the Suns for the next three seasons at over $13 million per year.
