Suns point guard Eric Bledsoe’s next regular-season game will not come for another seven months, but he has become a staple of Suns practices and road trips in recent weeks. Bledsoe has no chance of returning this season, but his rehabilitation after a left knee surgery has moved to the court.
Bledsoe put in a dedicated offseason last year, when he stayed in Phoenix to work with Suns athletic trainers, participate in free-agency recruiting, attend summer league and play from the start in voluntary pickup games. He has given indications of doing the same this year. “His vision for the program and his teammates is very clear,” Suns interim head coach Earl Watson said. “It’s sincere and he’s passionate. It’s determined that next year will be not even close to the same year as this year. It’s going to be better. His focus is on improving our team to where we can compete for the playoffs.”

#WeArePHX: OFFICIAL: Suns guard @EBled2 sustained a torn meniscus in his left knee during Saturday night’s game & will undergo surgery on Tuesday.
Mirza Teletovic: 🙁 Get well soon @EBled2
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.
Brian Windhorst: Suns’ Eric Bledsoe suffered a left knee injury last night. Initial belief is he will be out until after All-Star break according to sources.

Looney entertained other suitors. But ultimately, the three-time NBA champion and the Warriors were able to agree on a three-year, $22.5 million deal. “I wanted to come back here, have another chance at a championship,” Looney, speaking for the first time with the media since he signed the deal in July, said Saturday after the Warriors’ first day of training camp. “This is the final place, where I really wanted to be.”
“First of all, if you play at 9.30 and we come on at 10 and we say something, it’s just what we see. The mental thing ain’t come out until everybody start bashing you, then you let people know you have mental health problems. “And if you go back, Donzel is a witness he’s a producer on the show, I think I ever did it one the show. I did on you I told the world, I said ‘He did DM me he told me he’s going through some problems,’ and I said I was going to back up and then I told him in the DM ‘Okay, the reason why people don’t know what’s going on because you ain’t talking.’
“But as far as what I saw and I speak on what I know, I know how to get to that next level. He knows that and yes, you can be my brother, but I ain’t gonna always sugarcoat things, I’m gonna tell you the real. I ain’t never sugarcoat. I want you to get to the level, to the level, to the level. But you can’t say I’m hating because all the stuff you’re doing it because you saw me do it… If you’re greater, you can’t be a hater.”
Dwight Howard tells TMZ Sports he’s dead serious about his interest in joining the WWE — explaining he’d trade the basketball court for the wrestling ring this year if the offer was right. Howard showed back in July he certainly has the chops to cut it in the squared circle — delivering an epic promo after crashing a WWE tryout in Nashville.
In fact, Dwight said if the offer to wrestle in the WWE was better than one an NBA team could give him — he’d have no qualms taking it. “Whatever opportunity is best,” the NBA free agent said. As for what kind of personality Dwight would have in the org. — he said he could be both a hero and a villain.
