Knight (groin) could play Wednesday against the Timberwolves, Andrew Gruman of Fox Sports Wisconsin reports.
Knight, who has not played since last Saturday while nursing a sore groin, went through an extensive workout during Tuesday's practice. That's certainly encouraging, though the team could still hold him out of Wednesday's exhibition finale in order to give him another full week to rest up before the regular season tips off.

Knight (groin) will not play in Monday's preseason game versus the Knicks, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
Knight will miss a third straight exhibition game due to a sore groin, which could allow offseason signing Kendall Marshall to make another start at point guard on Monday. While it's unclear whether Knight will be available for Wednesday's preseason finale, his current groin ailment is not thought to be serious. Nonetheless, it should be worthwhile to monitor Knight's status in the coming week, as he's expected to start for the Bucks once again this season.

Coach Jason Kidd said Monday that he wouldn't mind a committee at the point guard spot this season, Charles Gardner of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
When healthy, Knight was Milwaukee's starting point guard last season, but the belief is still out there that he's better suited playing off the ball. With the Bucks adding Kendall Marshall and Jerryd Bayless this summer, Knight will have more competition in the backcourt and figures to see more time at the shooting guard spot. Marshall, particularly, is a true point guard, so it's possible Knight will see a decline in minutes (33.3 last season) with the added depth behind him.

Brandon Knight could be playing more minutes at shooting guard this season with the addition of Kendall Marshall.
He played next to Nate Wolters quite a bit last season and actually posted better numbers. Knight had higher efficiency and assist percentages next to Wolters while his usage rate was down. Plus, he ranked last in assist:turnover ratio in his last season with the Pistons before he lost his starting job to Jose Calderon. The Bucks are a bit of a mess right now and they could even ask Giannis Antetokounmpo to play some point guard. The Bucks also added Jerryd Bayless. A messy rotation in Milwaukee certainly wouldn't be a change from last season and that's exactly where we're headed.

Brandon Knight traveled to Rome this month for the NBA's Basketball Without Borders program.
He's also been in the news for trade rumors with the Kings possibly willing to part with their eighth pick in the draft. Knight was by far the Bucks' most consistent player, but the team is likely the best bet for the worst record next season and it makes some sense to dissemble their current roster. His fantasy value would probably hold up better with the Bucks due to a higher usage rate.
