At times, Brandon Knight looked like his old self on the court in his return after missing eight games for the Phoenix Suns due to an ankle sprain.
He checked in for the first time since March 9 with 6:42 to play in the first quarter, and found his legs quickly.
Brandon Knight's ankle looks just fine, considering how he has blown by D.J. Augustin twice and picked his dribble. PHX 48-30 #SunsVsThunder

But his shot looked understandably rusty, and he went 1-of-10 for just three points, two rebounds and four assists alongside two turnovers in just 22 minutes played.
In fact, Knight was hit on a layup attempt in the third quarter and stayed down, appearing to re-tweak his ankle and ultimately leaving the game.
He reportedly will not see time against Portland.
