AUBURN HILLS, Mich. (AP) — Detroit Pistons guard Brandon Knight is out for Monday night’s game against the Atlanta Hawks because of a hyperextended right knee.

It’s the third missed game in a row for Knight, who hasn’t played since Feb. 20 against Charlotte.

Knight is averaging 13.6 points and 4.3 assists in his second NBA season. Rodney Stuckey was in the starting lineup in his place.

The Pistons are also without rookie big man Andre Drummond, who has a stress fracture in his back, and guard Will Bynum, who was suspended one game for striking Indiana forward Tyler Hansbrough during a game against the Pacers on Saturday.
