Description: Now that Eric Bledsoe contract has been taken care of, he can focus of playing basketball for the Suns, along with producing for fantasy owners.
Insight: Last season, he averaged a career-high 17.7 points per game, 5.5 assists per game, 4.7 rebounds per game, 1.6 steals per game, along with shooting 48 percent from the field and hitting 1.3 three-pointers per game. Bledsoe is one of the most talented players in the NBA, and owners should consider drafting him starting in the third round.

Description: According to Jude LaCava of FOX Phoenix, the Suns are attempting to trade restricted free agent eric Bledsoe.
Insight: Bledsoe wants a five-year max contract, but the biggest contract the Suns have offered him is four years and $48 million. Injures limited Bledsoe to 43 games last season, but in those games, he averaged 17.7 points, 4.7 rebounds, 5.5 assists and 1.6 steals. If John Wall can get a max deal it's not crazy to think Bledsoe (17.7 ppg, 5.5 apg, 4.7 rpg) will get one also. As a restricted free agent, the Suns can match any offer Bledsoe receives on the open market. There's been some speculation that Phoenix could deal Bledsoe or point guard Goran Dragic to Minnesota as part of a trade for Kevin Love.

As a restricted free agent, the Suns can match any offer Bledsoe receives on the open market.

Description: Suns guard Eric Bledsoe's 30 points, 11 rebounds and nine assists were not enough for Phoenix to defeat the Spurs Friday night.
Insight: Goran Dragic was out of the lineup so Bledsoe saw more offensive chances. Bledsoe, Gerald Green and Markieff Morris combined for 77 points and the rest of the Suns had 27. Bledsoe has averaged 20.1 points, 5.6 boards, 5.0 assists and 1.7 steals his last 11 games.
 
3/14/2014 5:12:00 PM
Description: Suns guard Eric Bledsoe will move back into the starting lineup Friday, according to Paul Coro of the Arizona Republic.
Insight: Phoenix brought Bledsoe off the bench in his return from knee surgery on Wednesday but still played him 32 minutes. He'll replace Gerald Green in the starting lineup. Green has averaged 31.8 minutes, 17.3 points, 3.8 rebounds, 2.5 threes and 1.1 steals in 46 starts this season, compared to 22.8 minutes, 11.4 points, 2.8 rebounds, 2.3 threes and 0.4 steals off the bench. However, after he excelled with Bledsoe out of the lineup, look for the Suns to still try to get Green close to 30 mpg.
 
3/13/2014 4:55:00 PM
Description: Suns coach Jeff Hornacek is contemplating whether or not to put Eric Bledsoe in the starting lineup Friday, according to Matt Petersen of suns.com.
Insight: Phoenix brought Bledsoe off the bench in his return from knee surgery on Wednesday but still played him 32 minutes. He had 15 points, nine assists, three rebounds and two steals and is a must start in all fantasy leagues even if he remains on the bench. We'll see how the Suns divide the playing time of Gerald Green, P.J. Tucker and Marcus Morris now that Bledsoe is back.

Description: Suns guard Eric Bledsoe (torn meniscus) will come off the bench Wednesday versus Cleveland. SOURCE: Matt Peterson, Suns.com
Insight: This will be Bledsoe's first game in two and a half months. When healthy, he's a must-start.
 
3/10/2014 9:41:00 PM
Description: Phoenix guard Eric Bledsoe won't be available Monday against the Clippers but he's still hoping to play Wednesday versus Cleveland. Bledsoe has been out since tearing his meniscus in late December. SOURCE: Paul Coro, Arizona Republic
Insight: Gerald Green has been a stud in Bledsoe's absence, averaging 18.7 ppg in 31 games since January 1st. We'll see how those two co-exist Wednesday when Bledsoe makes his long-awaited return.
 
3/8/2014 4:36:00 PM
Description: Suns guard Eric Bledsoe (knee) said he likely will return to action Wednesday against the Cavaliers, according to Paul Coro of the Arizona Republic.
Insight: He'll sit out at least two more games, adding to the 37 he's already missed due to a torn meniscus. Bledsoe averaged 33.5 minutes, 18 points and 5.8 assists before the injury and will reduce the fantasy value of both Goran Dragic and Gerald Green when he returns. However, all three players are still worth rostering in all leagues.
 
3/5/2014 10:43:00 PM
Description: Suns guard Eric Bledsoe will return from his knee injury sometime within the next week. SOURCE: Arizona Republic
Insight: He could be back as early as Sunday, though it's more likely Bledsoe (18.0 ppg, 5.8 apg, 4.3 rpg) will return Monday against the Clippers or Wednesday versus Cleveland. We haven't seen him play in a game since December 30th.
 
3/4/2014 7:57:00 PM
Description: According to Phoenix coach, Jeff Hornacek, there's still no timetable for Eric Bledsoe's return from a torn meniscus. SOURCE: Matt Peterson, Suns.com
Insight: Despite Hornacek's vagueness, Bledsoe has been practicing with the team and could make his return Thursday against the Thunder. That's bad news for anyone who owns Gerald Green (15.1 ppg).
 
3/4/2014 1:37:00 PM
Description: Phoenix guard Eric Bledsoe (torn meniscus) is feeling "spring-training type" soreness after his last practice session.
Insight: The 24-year-old Bledsoe averaged 18 points, 5.8 assists, 4.3 rebounds and 1.5 steals per game in 24 games before undergoing surgery to repair a torn meniscus on Jan. 10. He'll practice again on Wednesday and could return as soon as Thursday against OKC as long as he doesn't have any setbacks.
 
3/2/2014 8:29:00 PM
Description: Phoenix guard Eric Bledsoe (torn meniscus) has progressed to five-on-five scrimmaging, according to the Arizona Republic.
Insight: The 24-year-old Bledsoe averaged 18 points, 5.8 assists, 4.3 rebounds and 1.5 steals per game in 24 games before undergoing surgery to repair a torn meniscus on Jan. 10. He'll increase his activity in scrimmages in the coming days.
 
2/25/2014 4:52:00 PM
Description: Phoenix guard Eric Bledsoe (torn meniscus) felt no soreness in his knee after practicing Monday, according to Matt Petersen of suns.com.
Insight: Bledsoe practiced hard Monday and will continue to increase the intensity of his workouts barring a setback. The 24-year-old averaged 18 points, 5.8 assists, 4.3 rebounds and 1.5 steals per game in 24 games before undergoing surgery to repair a torn meniscus nearly two months ago. His return will lessen the fantasy value of Goran Dragic, who has put up 22.4 ppg, 6.6 apg and 4.1 rpg since Bledsoe's injury compared to 18.4 ppg, 5.9 apg, 2.9 rpg with Bledsoe in the lineup.
 
2/18/2014 11:53:00 AM
Description: Phoenix guard Eric Bledsoe (torn meniscus) has been doing agility drills and shooting.
Insight: Still no timetable, but expectations are that he'll return in 2-3 weeks. He averaged 18.0 ppg, 4.3 rpg, 5.8 apg, 1.5 apg before the injury.
 
1/11/2014 2:22:00 PM
Description: Phoenix guard Eric Bledsoe had arthroscopic surgery to remove, not repair, a torn meniscus on Thursday.
Insight: John Gambodoro of Arizona Sports 98.7 estimates a 4-6 week timetable. Gerald Green (13.4 ppg) has been starting at shooting guard in Bledsoe's place.

Description: Phoenix combo guard Eric Bledsoe is headed for surgery on his right knee. SOURCE: Marc Stein, ESPN
Insight: He's out indefinitely with what is believed to be a torn meniscus. Bledsoe has played like an All-Star this year, averaging 18.0 ppg on 48.6 percent shooting in 24 games. Without him, the surging Suns will be hard-pressed to make the playoffs.
 
1/7/2014 7:58:00 PM
Description: Suns guard Eric Bledsoe (knee) still might join the team later this week, according to Paul Coro of azcentral.com.
Insight: Bledsoe sprained his knee last Monday against the Clippers and will miss his third straight game Tuesday. The Suns were expected to hold him out past their five-game road trip from Jan. 7-13, but Bledsoe said Monday he was feeling much better and would play on the trip if the decision was up to him.
