We’ve received a pretty hurtful WojBomb today, as former Kentucky Wildcat Brandon Knight has torn his ACL, and could miss the entire regular season for the Phoenix Suns.

Brandon Knight has played for the Suns the last three seasons, starting 50 games during the 2015-16 campaign. Last year was a down year for Knight, as he averaged just 11 points and 2.4 assists per game, both of those falling well below his career averages of 15.2 points and 4.3 assists.

Knight hasn’t played even 55 games in a single season so far since joining Phoenix, and he certainly won’t be posting a new high this year after this.

The Phoenix Suns have been stockpiling Kentucky talent lately, with Devin Booker, Eric Bledsoe and Tyler Ulis there as well, and Archie Goodwin having been there for some time, but that could be broken up soon as the Suns look to continue their rebuild and add other pieces.
