The Phoenix Suns have announced that guard Eric Bledsoe will be out indefinitely after succumbing to what ESPN reports as potential meniscus damage to his right knee.

Bledsoe, who was traded to the Suns from the Clippers last summer, has been enjoying a career season for the Suns in his first year as a full-time starter.

Averaging 18 points, 5.8 assists, 4.3 rebounds and 1.5 steals, the 24 year-old has been integral in helping the Suns to a 21-13 record.

Having already missed Phoenix’s last four games the news that Bledsoe will be out for a prolonged period is certainly unfortunate for coach Jeff Hornacek and everyone associated with the Suns.

Gerald Green has stepped into the starting line up in Bledsoe's absence and, despite having made a game-winning jump shot against the Timberwolves on Wednesday, the Suns will no doubt miss Bledsoe who had been shooting a career-best 48.6 percent from the field.

LeBron James was quick to offer his condolences to the Sun guard via Twitter.
