NBA Rumors: Eric Bledsoe hopes to return for Phoenix Suns Wednesday

Phoenix Suns’ guard Eric Bledsoe hoped to return when the Suns traveled to Los Angeles to take on his former team, the Los Angeles Clippers, on Monday night, but it looks like he will have to settle for making his return on Wednesday night when the Suns host the Cleveland Cavaliers.

The Arizona Republic has the scoop.

Suns guard Eric Bledsoe still has a plan to make his return Wednesday night at home against Cleveland but he could move it to Monday night’s game against the Los Angeles Clippers. “It’s up to him,” Coach Jeff Hornacek said. “(Head athletic trainer) Aaron (Nelson) and those guys have done all the conditioning and training that he needs to do. When he feels comfortable with going and feel like he’s ready to go, he’ll go. Wednesday is kind of that target day.

Bledsoe was acquired by the Suns in a three-way trade involving the Milwaukee Bucks that netted the Clippers J.J. Redick.

In 24 games for the Suns this season, Bledsoe averaged 18.0 points, 5.8 assists, 4.3 rebounds and 1.5 steals per game.
