The Phoenix Suns Eric Bledsoe will be back this season after he had a successful surgery this morning to repair a damaged knee, according ESPN.

Bledsoe was part of a trade last summer which saw him move from the Clippers to the Suns. This season he has been an outstanding averaging 18 points a per-game.

His quality play has helped the Suns keep pace with the Clippers in the Pacific Division of the Western Conference, with a 21-13 record. The injury is certainly a blow, but it looks likely he will return. 

NBA Writer Brian Windhorst revealed today on Twitter, "Suns' Eric Bledsoe had a successful procedure on his knee this morning, sources said. The expectation is he'll be back this season."

Gerald Green has been filling the void left by Bledsoe, but it now seems he won't be expected to be his replacement for the whole season. 

The return of Bledsoe before the end of the season will certainly make the Suns' fans delighted at the prospect of getting back on court one of their most influential ball players.  

LeBron James was one of the players to offer his condolences via Twitter yesterday, saying, "Just heard about my lil bro @EBled2! Having a great year! Just a minor set back. Come back stronger bro! #Klutch #StriveForGreatness."
