Bad news for one of the most promising Cats in the league: the Phoenix Suns just announced that Eric Bledsoe will need knee surgery and will be out indefinitely.

Sources tell ESPN that Bledsoe will undergo a procedure to repair cartilage in his right knee after suffering meniscus damage during the Suns’ game against the Clippers back on December 30.  He hasn’t played since.

This season, Bledsoe has been one of the most improved players in the league, averaging 18 points (up from 8.5 last season), 5.8 assists, and 4.3 rebounds per game, flourishing in his role as a full-time starter in Phoenix. Hopefully the injury isn’t too bad and he’s back on the court soon.

    That really sucks for his contract/free agency at the end of the season. That’s gonna hurt the confidence in his value if he can’t prove that he can still play before that negotiation has to happen.

    I guess he’ll be back next game.

    That’s kinda heartbreaking. It was nice to see Eric running the show finally.
