The Phoenix Suns are arguably one of the brightest spots in the NBA this season. They were rumored to be the team that was tanking in order to improve their draft positioning next season. But you could never tell based on their record and a huge key to their success has been Eric Bledsoe.
Unfortunately for Phoenix, they’ll be without his services for the forseeable future as he will require knee surgery.
Phoenix Suns guard Eric Bledsoe, one of the leading contenders for the NBA’s Most Improved Player award, is out indefinitely after the team determined that Bledsoe needs a surgical procedure to repair cartilage in his right knee, according to sources with knowledge of the situation.
Sources told ESPN.com that the exact scope and severity of the injury will not be known until Bledsoe is in a surgeon’s care, but he is suspected to have suffered meniscus damage in his Dec. 30 return to Los Angeles to face the Clippers.
