Reports: Bledsoe out for lengthy period of time

Phoenix Suns guard Eric Bledsoe could be sidelined until after the All-Star break due to a left knee injury, according to reports. 

Bledsoe suffered the injury during the Suns’ 111-104 loss to the Philadelphia 76ers on Saturday and reports suggest that Bledsoe tore his meniscus and could require surgery. 

The 26-year-old underwent an MRI scan on Sunday and is currently assessing his options. 

Bledsoe has a history of knee injuries as he tore the meniscus in his right knee during the 2013/14 season and had to go under the knife, which forced him to miss 33 games. 

Bledsoe’s injury is a major blow for the Suns, who have lost 15 of their last 20 games, as he is currently averaging a career-best 20.4 points, 6.1 assists and 2.0 steals per game. 

The Suns’ next assignment will see them clash with the Cleveland Cavaliers at the Talking Stick Resort Arena on Monday.
