PHOENIX (AP) — Suns guard Eric Bledsoe has been scratched from the starting lineup against the Memphis Grizzlies with a sprained right knee.
The team said the knee was bothering Bledsoe in a win over the Clippers on Monday, when he went 3 for 10 for seven points while playing 31 minutes.
Gerald Green started in place of Bledsoe for the 19-11 Suns on Thursday night.
Bledsoe is the Suns' second-leading scorer, averaging 18.0 points per game.
