Suns' Eric Bledsoe feels no soreness in knee.


The Phoenix Suns and guard Eric Bledsoe may be gearing up for a playoff push.

After practicing on Monday, the team and Bledsoe announced that the guard didn’t feel any soreness in his knee today.

Bledsoe went through 3-on-3 drills during practice.

Bledsoe will continue to increase his work load, and barring any setbacks a return may be sooner than later, but for the time being it looks like Bledsoe will be sticking to 3-on-3 drills.

The Suns currently sit 8th in the West and have just a two game lead on the Memphis Grizzlies for the final spot in the West.

Bledsoe has played in just 24 games this season, averaging 18 points, 5.8 assists, 4.3 rebounds, and 1.5 steals.

The Suns acquired Bledsoe from the Los Angeles Clippers in a three team trade during the offseason.
