NBA round-up: Phoenix Suns confirm Eric Bledsoe's season-ending surgery

Published Add your comment

NBA fans, hello and welcome back.

It’s been a short while since our last round-up - the call of the Christmas break was simply too much for some - but we’ve returned just in time to get the show on the road for the new year.

Since we’re on the eve of 2016, there’s much and more to discuss. Watch the video above or read on below for the latest.

Bledsoe out for the season

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.

Milwaukee Bucks v Phoenix Suns

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.

Morris to apologise to the Suns

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.

Sacramento Kings v Phoenix Suns

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.

Durant and Westbrook beat the Bucks

Lastly, Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant were both in fine form as the Oklahoma City Thunder bested the Milwaukee Bucks 131-123 on Tuesday night.

The impressive pair managed 53 points between them - Westbrook 27, Durant 26 - to mark the 25th time this season each of them has netted over 20 in a game.

The victory over the Bucks ensured the Thunder remain top of the Northwest Division, having won 11 of their last 14.
