Brandon Knight to be fitted for mask, should play Wednesday

Brandon Knight broke his nose during Saturday night's game against the New Orleans Hornets when former Piston DaJuan Summers' elbow came crashing down on his face after a rebound. Knight went to the locker room and would not return to the game.

According to the Detroit News, Knight wanted to return to the game, though, and he should be back when the Pistons play next on Wednesday against the Nets:

Guard Brandon Knight is expected to play Wednesday when the Pistons resume play in New Jersey. He broke his nose in the first quarter of the game against New Orleans when he was hit by former Piston DaJuan Summers during a scramble for a loose rebound. Knight said it felt like his face exploded. He will be fitted with a mask and should return to practice by Tuesday.

Knight said he wanted to return to the game but got headaches when he did some light running in the Palace hallways.

"It was a little bit crooked," Knight said. "It does not look normal. It's not straight."

I think I'd take a little bit of a crooked nose over bashed brains or an MCL injury -- looks like Pistons got out of Saturday night's game relatively healthy.
