Brandon Knight may not take the floor next year.
The Suns guard tore the ACL in his left knee and could miss the entire season, the team announced on Tuesday afternoon.
He sustained the injury last week while playing in Florida.
Knight's production fell off during the 2016-17 campaign, when he appeared in just 54 games.
He averaged career lows in practically every category -- points (11.0), assists (2.4), rebounds (2.2), steals (0.5), field goal percentage (39.8) and 3-point percentage (32.4).
The year prior, he registered 19.6 points, 5.1 assists and 3.9 rebounds per contest.
