Phoenix Suns star could return after surgery

Published Add your comment

Phoenix Suns point guard Eric Bledsoe could return to action this season after successfully undergoing surgery on his right knee, according to reports.

The 24-year-old, who has been the Suns' most outstanding player this term, had an arthroscopic procedure involving meniscus cartilage on his knee – but could still make a comeback before the play-offs.

Bledsoe has averaged 18 points, 5.8 assists, 4.3 rebounds and 1.5 steals in 24 games since joining the Suns from the Clippers last summer – and replacing those impressive figures won't be easy for the side who have been dubbed this season's surprise package in the NBA.

Phoenix currently sit seventh in the West at 21-13, but whether or not they can still in play-off contention without Bledsoe remains to be seen.

In the meantime, the onus will be on Gerald Green to fill the void left by his injured teammate.

Coach Jeff Hornacek, Green and the rest of the team will hope to receive good news about Bledsoe's recovery sooner rather than later.
