The team announced successful surgery for the point guard, an arthroscopic procedure involving meniscus cartilage in his right knee, and said Bledsoe could return this season.
Bledsoe's injury is a major setback for the Suns who are currently the NBA's biggest surprise, currently siting seventh in the West at 21-13. But to survive without their best player will be a major challenge.
The big question is if when Bledsoe returns -- there's no timetable on it -- if the Suns will still be in the playoff conversation.
Bledsoe, 24, is averaging 18.0 points, 5.8 assists and 4.3 rebounds in 24 games this season.
