Knight to have tests to decide future
Knight will fly to Melbourne for tests with a neuropsychologist to determine whether he is risking his health by continuing to play.
The power forward has had numerous concussions and was tested three years ago before being cleared to continue his career.
But he said the blow he received in Wollongong last Wednesday night had changed things.
It was the second serious head knock Knight had sustained in the past month. He was unable to play the next match both times.
"The scary part is it wasn't that hard a knock," said Knight, who has two young children — Mia and Oliver.
“It was just the back of his hand on my temple. Unfortunately, due to all the other things, it was just a slight impact and it had that effect.
“I was never close (to playing). I only started feeling somewhat normal this morning. This one has taken longer to recover and that’s why there’s a bit of concern right now. I’ll sit down with the club, see some people and make a decision.
“I’ve got a young family now so I’ve got to start thinking long term. I’ve had a fantastic career and would love to keep playing, but if I can’t, I’ll accept it and get ready to move on.”
Would be sad if it had to end in these circumstances. Been a fantastic player.
