The rumours were right, it’s been confirmed, the Phoenix Suns will be without top scorer Eric Bledsoe for the remainder of the season after the 26-year-old underwent surgery yesterday to repair a torn meniscus in his left knee. The point guard was injured during the loss to Philadelphia on Saturday, but the initial estimates were that he might be missing for over a month. However, after having surgery to repair, rather than cut out, the meniscus, a lengthy layoff is now needed. Our second story sticks with the Suns, who have apparently asked Markieff Morris to apologise to the rest of the team as a condition of his return. The forward has completed a two-game suspension after throwing a towel at his coach during the loss to the Denver Nuggets. If he issues an apology all could be forgiven.
