Brandon Knight seems like a nice enough guy, but perhaps that wasn’t the case in a previous life.

It’s been a rough season for Knight, with Sunday night’s obliteration at the hands of DeAndre Jordan leading the list of events that haven’t exactly gone his way.

Players will always take embarrassment over injury, however, so this note from Utah Jazz PR Director Jon Rinehart from tonight’s game means things can’t get much worse for Knight this week.

Per Pistons PR, Brandon Knight suffered a left ankle sprain and will not return. #DETatUTA

Knight, as you may recall, was on the wrong end of that subtle punch from Metta World Peace a little over a month ago, and was the victim of Kyrie Irving’s ire late in the Rising Stars Challenge during All-Star weekend in Houston.

Here’s hoping the injury is nothing too serious; Knight’s already had way more than his fair share of issues this season.
