Early Tuesday afternoon, the Houston Rockets received some good news regarding one of their offseason acquisitions. According to Alykhan Bijani of The Athletic, Brandon Knight is scheduled to make his return to court sometime in December.

A source told The Athletic that the team has been very cautious with Knight and there is a possibility of a return in December. Knight is viewed as someone who can help take minutes from Paul and Harden. Paul is averaging 34.5 minutes per game and Harden 35.8. Knight has been taking shots and going through layup drills before the start of games.

Acquired by the Rockets in exchange for Ryan Anderson from the Phoenix Suns, the 26-year-old point guard has yet to play a single game with his new team to date. Knight is still recovering from a torn ACL injury that has sidelined him since the 2016-2017 NBA season.

With the potential of another guard returning to the lineup, Knight will give the Rockets a reliable ball handler who can help ease the workload off the shoulders of Chris Paul and James Harden.

As a member of the Pistons, Bucks, and Suns, Knight has averaged 15.2 points per game on 32.4 percent shooting from 3-point land, and 39.8 percent overall throughout his career. His best season came during the 2014-15 season where he averaged a career-best 17.8 points, 5.4 assists, and 4.3 rebounds for the Milwaukee Bucks.
