Detroit Pistons guard Brandon Knight plans to take it easy this offseason instead of pushing his body too hard as he has in the past.

Knight is currently dealing with a left ankle sprain, suffered last month in Utah, and plantar fasciitis, which he has battled since last summer.

He has also suffered a broken nose in each of his two NBA seasons. He'll play out the season and then let his body heal.

"I know we don't have a shot at the playoffs this year, but I can't really sit down and watch," Knight said. "If I can get on the court and play and give some type of positive boost to my team, I'll do it, whether I'm scoring five points or not.

"That's just my competitive nature. Whether it be foot, knee, all the stuff that I'm trying to battle right now, nose, I just try to play through it."
