Suns extend qualifying offers to Eric Bledsoe, P.J. Tucker


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(6/27/2014) The Suns officially extended qualifying offers to guards Eric Bledsoe and P.J. Tucker Friday, making them restricted free agents.

The Suns could see plenty of turnover in their roster this offseason, and both players could be coveted in free agency. However, the team retains matching rights for both and are likely to return to Phoenix next season after being key pieces of the team's near-miss of a playoff spot.  


Eric Bledsoe continues solid play


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(3/27/2014) Suns guard Eric Bledsoe has found his way in recent games, after looking a bit rusty in his return from knee surgery.

Bledsoe put up his fourth 20-point game in a row Wednesday against the Wizards, after failing to do so in each of his first five games back. He scored 23 points on 8 of 18 shooting with three 3-pointers made, and filled up the box score nicely in 37 minutes. Bledsoe added six rebounds, seven assists and three steals, though he also turned the ball over seven times, which has been an issue recently.

Bledsoe has been cleared for a bigger role over his last four games, topping 30 minutes in each. He is averaging 16.7 points, 5.7 rebounds and 5.3 assists per game since returning from injury. 


Eric Bledsoe looks solid in return


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(3/13/2014) The Suns brought Eric Bledsoe off the bench for his first appearance in nearly two and a half months, but that doesn't mean they eased him back into action. Bledsoe played 32 minutes and nearly recorded a double-double in a 110-101 loss to the Cavaliers.

Bledsoe clearly had some rust to knock off with his jump shot, as he finished the game 5 of 16 from the field and just 1 of 6 from three-point range. He was still productive overall, finishing with 15 points and nine assists without a turnover in his 32 minutes of action. 

Bledsoe's got plenty of catching up to do after missing a big chunk of the season following surgery on his knee. If Wednesday was any indication, however, he isn't going to have much trouble doing so. He is averaging 17.8 points and 5.9 assists per game in 25 appearances this season. 


Eric Bledsoe makes his return Wednesday


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(3/12/2014) As expected, Suns guard Eric Bledsoe is making his much anticipated return to action Wednesday, having fully recovered from knee surgery. Bledsoe, who has been out since Dec. 30, will come off the bench in his first action, as confirmed by the team's digital reporter.

Bledsoe has played in just 24 of the team's 63 games, but was enjoying a breakout season prior to the injury. He is averaging 18.0 points and 5.8 assists on the season. 


Eric Bledsoe still shooting for return vs. Cavs


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Eric Bledsoe could return Monday


by Joe Polito | CBSSports.com
(3/10/2014) Suns guard Eric Bledsoe has been targetting a Wednesday return from his two month absence, but the Arizona Republic reported that he could take the floor as soon as Monday when Phoenix travels to play the Clippers. 

"It's up to him," Suns coach Jeff Hornacek said. "“For the first few games, we’ll bring him off the bench."

Hornacek cited the Suns' success with Bledsoe starting alongside Goran Dragic, but was quick to point out how well Gerald Green had done filling in as a starter.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(3/8/2014) Suns guard Eric Bledsoe practiced Saturday and will likely make his return from knee surgery on Wednesday against the Cavaliers, according to The Arizona Republic.

by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Bledsoe has been sidelined since late December while recovering from knee surgery. He has averaged 18.0 points, 5.8 assists and 4.3 assists over 24 games played.

According to The Arizona Republic, Bledsoe increased his workload at practice Saturday, incorporating more basketball moves while working out with player development coach Corey Gaines.

Bledsoe has not played since late December as a result of the surgery, and he still has no firm timetable for returning. Still, both Bledsoe and the team remain confident he will be back before the end of the season.

He was in the midst of a breakout campaign before the injury, averaging 18.0 points, 5.8 assists and 4.3 assists per game.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Head coach Jeff Hornacek is "gradually building up" and that he'll need three or four days of practice once cleared for action before returning to the court in a game situation. However, Hornacek had no idea as to when that would be.

Bledsoe is recovering from January meniscus surgery and may be able to return this season if he doesn't suffer any setbacks in his recovery. He has averaged 18.0 points, 4.3 rebounds and 5.8 assists over 24 games played this season.


Report: Suns plan to match any offer made for Eric Bledsoe


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(2/17/2014) Suns president of basketball operations Lon Babby told the 98.7 FM Arizona Sports radio earlier this week that the team plans to match any offer made for injured guard Eric Bledsoe. He's expected to be a restricted free agent at the end of the season.

"I think our answer to that is yes, that we know enough about Eric as a player," Babby said. "Even more importantly, we've lived with him now for almost a year as a person. We like everything about him. Like him as a teammate, like him as a representative of our franchise and everything that he stands for."

Bledsoe is roughly five weeks removed from a surgery that repaired his torn meniscus, and remains hopeful of playing again this season. He was averaging 18.0 points, 4.3 rebounds and 5.8 assists through 24 games played before suffering the injury.


Suns optimistic about a post All-Star break return for Eric Bledsoe


by Joe Polito | CBSSports.com
(2/13/2014) It's been five weeks since Suns guard Eric Bledsoe underwent knee surgery to repair his torn meniscus, and the team is "encouraged" by his progress to date. According to the Arizona Republic, many within the organization believe Bledsoe "could return not long after the All-Star break."

Bledsoe had been enjoying a stellar year, averaging 18.0 points, 4.3 rebounds and 5.8 assists per game. The team still hasn't nailed down an exact timetable, but this latest report suggest that we'll see Bledsoe take the floor again before the season is over. 


Eric Bledsoe progressing, expected to run more


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(2/3/2014) Suns guard Eric Bledsoe was reevaluated over the weekend as he recovers from arthroscopic knee surgery and is continuing to make progress, NBA.com reports.

"Doctors said everything looks good," head coach Jeff Hornacek said. "He’s going to continue his rehab. I think because they got that ‘OK’, they’ll step up his workload and continue to push him to get back as soon as he can."

Bledsoe has completed the strength-building portion of his rehab and is expected to run more as he moves to the speed and endurance portion of his rehab. He has averaged 18.0 points, 5.8 assists and 4.3 rebounds over 24 games played.


Eric Bledsoe not rushing back from knee injury


by Joe Polito | CBSSports.com
(1/22/2014) Based on recent quotes from Suns guard Eric Bledsoe, it isn’t a question of when he’ll be back, but rather a question of “if” he’ll return this year. The Arizona Republic reported Wednesday that Bledsoe was noncommittal about taking the court again this season.

“If it’s possible,” Bledsoe said. “I’m taking it slow.”

Bledsoe had a piece of his meniscus removed Jan. 10, halting a breakout season that saw him average 18.0 points, 5.8 assists and 4.3 rebounds per game.


Report: Eric Bledsoe had piece of meniscus removed


by Joe Polito | CBSSports.com
(1/13/2014) The Suns announced a successful surgery for guard Eric Bledsoe last week, adding that the team hopes to have him return this year. According to The Arizona Republic, Bledsoe had a piece of his meniscus removed instead of another repair, which he underwent in 2011 for the same knee.

As of now it’s unclear whether Bledsoe had a piece of his meniscus removed, or if he had his meniscus removed entirely, as another report suggested.

Either way, this procedure gives the Suns more hope that Bledsoe could return sometime after the All-Star break. But if the report of a complete removal is true, it could spell knee trouble down the road, as we’ve seen with Dwyane Wade, who had a complete removal in 2002. The 24-year-old Bledsoe was averaging 18.0 points and 5.9 assists per game before undergoing surgery.

"Bledsoe will immediately begin a recovery and rehabilitation program and will pursue a possible return to action during the second half of this NBA season," the team said in a press release. 

Bledsoe was averaging 18.0 points, 4.3 rebounds and 5.8 assists per game on the season before going down with injury.

by Joe Polito | CBSSports.com
