Phoenix Suns guard Brandon Knight sustained a torn ACL in his left knee in July.

The Suns announced that Knight underwent surgery on Friday to repair it and he will miss the entire 2017-18 season.

The team had said before the 25-year-old would likely miss the upcoming season, but left no doubt in their statement Friday.

Knight injured his leg while playing in a Florida pro-am game.

Suns General Manager Ryan McDonough said just a day after the news broke in July that it was “unfortunate” and that “it could’ve happened to anybody.”

Knight finished his sixth season in the NBA playing 54 games. He averaged 11.0 points, 2.2 rebounds and 2.4 assists last year.
