NBA rumors: Eric Bledsoe out for the season

More on Eric Bledsoe Injury

An awful Suns basketball night turned worse after the Suns learned that leading scorer and playmaker Eric Bledsoe suffered a torn meniscus in his left knee during Saturday night's home loss to Philadelphia, according to sources.
The injury is expected to require surgery that could sideline Bledsoe for several weeks or longer, depending on the course of action. Bledsoe previously tore a meniscus in his right knee and had it repaired in 2011. A surgery to remove the damaged meniscus in 2014 sidelined him for more than two months at almost the same juncture of the season as this injury. Then, Bledsoe missed games from Jan. 2 to March 10.
With treatment decisions still to be made, the Suns have not announced Bledsoe's MRI results or a timetable for recovery. Bledsoe, 26, injured the knee during the second quarter of Saturday’s 111-104 home loss to the woeful 76ers. On defense, Bledsoe was chasing Philadelphia guard Ish Smith off the ball when he swerved to avoid a Robert Covington screen and collapsed to the floor after planting his left leg. He was carried off the court and did not return.
Phoenix Suns guard Eric Bledsoe's injured left knee may keep him out until after the All-Star break, sources told ESPN. Bledsoe suffered the non-contact injury Saturday night in a loss to the Philadelphia 76ers. The initial diagnosis was that it was an injury to his meniscus that could require surgery, sources told ESPN. Bledsoe underwent an MRI on Sunday and is considering his treatment options.
