Knight Undergoes Arthroscopic Surgery on Left Ankle
LOS ANGELES – Phoenix Suns guard Brandon Knight underwent successful arthroscopic surgery on his left ankle yesterday.
The surgery was performed by Dr. Richard Ferkel in Los Angeles. Knight is expected to make a full recovery.
Knight averaged 17.0 points and career-highs of 5.2 assists, 3.9 rebounds and 1.4 steals this past season, one of just nine players in the NBA to post at least those amounts in each of those categories. A four-year NBA veteran out of the University of Kentucky, Knight played in 11 games with the Suns this past season after being acquired in a trade from the Milwaukee Bucks on Feb. 19.
