Wildcat Knight on track for NBL opener

Perth Wildcats coach Trevor Gleeson says centre Matt Knight is a strong chance to return from injury in Saturday night's NBL clash with Brisbane at Perth Arena.

Knight missed a large chunk of the pre-season campaign after fracturing his right thumb in a game against Adelaide last month.

Gleeson says Knight's fitness base is good and the 32-year-old is likely to be given the green light to face Brisbane.
