Knight, who is behind bars on a murder charge, was due in court for a felony burglary charge, but said that he was too sick to make it. The court date was moved to Friday.
Before settling on a continuance, Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Ronald Coen almost had Knight forcibly removed from his cell, which will be the case if he misses the next date.
Knight tends to have health emergencies whenever he has to go to court. The Death Row Records co-founder fired his lawyer in the burglary case and will have to provide new counsel at the next hearing.
If he does not have one, Judge Coen is likely to assign him an attorney.
