    Suns' Eric Bledsoe: Ruled out for season

    Bledsoe (knee) underwent surgery to repair a torn meniscus Tuesday, and he'll miss the remainder of the season, John Schuhmann of NBA.com reports. Initially, the Suns had hoped Bledsoe could return around the All-Star break, but team doctors opted to repair, rather than remove, his torn meniscus, which entails a lengthier recovery period. As such, Bledsoe will miss the remainder of the year, cutting his season short after just 31 games. The Kentucky product was off to the best start of his career, holding averages of 20.4 points, 6.1 assists and 4.0 rebounds while shooting 45.3 percent from the field and 37.2 percent from three, up from 32.4 last season. In Bledsoe's extended absence, Brandon Knight will take over as the lead guard, with both Devin Booker and T.J. Warren in line to step into larger roles. Booker started in Bledsoe's place Monday night against Cleveland, while Warren came off the bench to score 23 points in 27 minutes.

    Suns' Eric Bledsoe: Expected to miss six weeks

    Bledsoe (knee) is expected to miss six weeks following surgery for a torn meniscus, Paul Coro of azcentral.com reports. Bledsoe's return timetable is now definitive, and he is looking to return to action sometime in mid-February. Devin Booker will likely get the first opportunity to start in Bledsoe's absence. Ronnie Price, Sonny Weems, and Archie Goodwin, could all see extra time in the Suns backcourt rotation while Bledsoe recovers.

    Suns' Eric Bledsoe: Scheduled for Tuesday surgery

    Bledsoe (knee) was diagnosed with a torn meniscus and will undergo surgery Tuesday, The Arizona Republic reports. The report doesn't specify whether Bledsoe's meniscus will be repaired or removed. The first path would be preferable for his long-term outlook, but with the caveat of a longer recovery timetable. Bledsoe actually had both procedures on his other knee, first getting his right meniscus repaired shortly before the 2011-12 season, and then having it removed during the 2013-14 campaign. The first procedure led to a four-month absence, compared to a two-month absence for the removal. With the injury erasing any slim hopes of playoff contention, the Suns will likely place more weight on the long-term implications, though it's still possible that removal will be the best option. Head coach Jeff Hornacek said Devin Booker will likely join the starting lineup alongside Brandon Knight, who figures to see a bump in usage rate and possibly also playing time. Ronnie Price, Sonnie Weems and Archie Goodwin could also help fill the void for what will likely be a very bad team over the next few months.

    Suns' Eric Bledsoe: Could be out until All-Star break

    Bledsoe (knee) could be sidelined until after the All-Star break, Brian Windhorst of ESPN.com reports. The Suns still haven't announced the results of the MRI that Bledsoe underwent Sunday morning, but those familiar with the point guard's condition seem to believe that a multi-week absence could be on tap. The long-term loss of Bledsoe would likely doom the Suns' chances of capturing the eighth seed in the Western Conference, as the 25-year-old is in the midst of a career-best campaign, averaging 20.4 points, 6.1 assists, four rebounds, and two steals across 34.2 minutes per contest. Expect the Suns to make an announcement soon regarding the extent of Bledsoe's injury along with a possible return timetable.

    Suns' Eric Bledsoe: Will miss extended period of time with knee injury

    Bledsoe (knee) is expected to miss an extended period of time after suffering a left knee injury during Saturday's game against the 76ers, Paul Coro of the Arizona Republic reports. Bledsoe sprained his knee on Saturday and the injury looks to be a bit worse than originally believed. While an exact timetable has yet to be established for a return, Bledsoe is undergoing an MRI and as soon as the results are posted, we should have a clearer view on how long this injury could keep him out. Until he's back to full health, Ronnie Price and Archie Goodwin could see extended time at the point. The Suns could also move Brandon Knight to point guard and move Devin Booker into the starting lineup at the two, so we'll have to wait and see what coach Jeff Hornacek decides to do moving forward.

    Suns' Eric Bledsoe: Scores 18 in Sunday's loss

    Bledsoe scored 18 points (6-11 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 5-5 FT) while adding three steals in 34 minutes during Sunday's loss to the Bucks. He struggled badly on the defensive end, finishing with a minus-24 plus/minus rating that was just one point better than the rest of the Suns' starting lineup put together. Bledsoe did at least keep his streak of games with multiple steals alive at eight, but otherwise it was an uncharacteristically poor performance. He'll get a chance to bounce back Monday night in Utah.

    Suns' Eric Bledsoe: Posts game-high 29 points in Friday victory

    Bledsoe managed a game-high 29 points (12-17 FG, 1-3 3PT, 4-5 FT), nine assists, four rebounds and a pair of steals over 35 minutes in Friday's 104-88 victory over the Pelicans. The veteran guard was outstanding from the field, and also encountered a high degree of success setting up his teammates for scoring opportunities as well in what was an outstanding all-around effort. The nine dimes equaled a high-water mark in that category in December for Bledsoe, and the 29 points represented his second-highest scoring total during the month. It was a stellar bounce-back effort for the six-year pro, who had managed a season-low six points in a blowout loss to the Warriors last Wednesday.

    Suns' Eric Bledsoe: Scores season-low six points in blowout loss

    Bledsoe was held to a season-low six points (3-12 FG) to go with eight assists, five rebounds, two steals, and five turnovers across 32 minutes in Wednesday's 128-103 loss to the Warriors. Bledsoe and Brandon Knight have been one of the league's most dynamic backcourt tandems this season, but they were absolutely no match for the Splash Brothers (Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson), who combined to pour in 68 points on 25-for-36 shooting. While Knight at least held up to his end of the bargain with 17 points, Bledsoe's inability to make shots from the floor or get to the free-throw line ended up being his undoing. It was the first time he had been held to single-digit scoring all season.
