The Phoenix Suns have been the most pleasant surprise the NBA has seen this season, though their good fortune has hit a mild bump in the road as star guard Eric Bledsoe will miss time with injury.

While Gerald Green is taking his place in the lineup, it’s likely that Goran Dragic will see a boost in numbers as he’s likely to take on a bigger load in Bledsoe’s absence.
The hope is that the former Kentucky Wildcat will be able to return in just a few games but knee sprains can be a tricky recovery, which is why the team decided to take the a cautious route with Bledsoe.
