Bledsoe Continues to Make Progress

by Ben York

While the Suns run off win after win, Eric Bledsoe is racing equally as fast to get back on the court as soon as possible.

The fourth-year guard, who underwent arthroscopic surgery on his right knee in January, was re-evaluated over the weekend.

Suns Head Coach Jeff Hornacek said the news was positive.

“Doctors said everything looks good,” Hornacek said. “He’s going to continue his rehab. I think because they got that ‘OK’, they’ll step up his workload
and continue to push him to get back as soon as he can.”

Bledsoe had been restricted to strength-building exercises both for his knee and in general. With the first portion of that process successfully completed,
speed and endurance form the next step in the rehab process.

“I think they’ll have him do more running, now,” Hornacek said. “They wanted to wait on that pounding a little bit to see how he’s progressing.”

The Suns’ point guard has been traveling with the team and has made it a point to talk with teammates during pre-game warm-ups leading up to tip-off. He
recently endorsed teammate Goran Dragic for the All-Star Game on Twitter and has been an active supporter of the team in that forum while continuing his comeback.
