Eric Bledsoe has taken the next step in his pursuit to return to the court.
The Phoenix Suns‘ guard was able to do some 1-on-1 work during practice Saturday.
The Suns may need Bledsoe to return to the court as quickly as possible to keep their playoff pursuit strong.
Bledsoe has missed the last 30 games with arthroscopic right knee surgery.
The team was 18-6 with Bledsoe in the lineup prior to his injury.
Bledsoe averaged 18 points, 5.8 assists, and 4.3 rebounds for the Suns.
Bledsoe may begin practicing with the team in the next week.
The Suns acquired the guard in a three team trade with the Clippers and Milwaukee Bucks.
