Eric Bledsoe had an efficient shooting performance against the Warriors on Friday, scoring 21 points on 9-of-13 shooting to go with seven assists, three steals, three 3-pointers and four turnovers in 34 minutes.
The knee was not an issue at all for Bledsoe tonight, so owners can now lay any concerns about his surgically-repaired right knee to rest. Bledsoe is just 25 years old, and out of the six years he's been in the league, only two seasons have been cut short by injury, so we can probably get rid of the "injury-prone" label for Eric. He's a top-15 play in 9-cat leagues, and when turnovers aren't an issue (8-cat) his value jumps to No. 8 overall. Enjoy the ride. Nov 28 - 3:40 AM

Eric Bledsoe (knee) will play vs. the Warriors on Friday.

He gets a tough matchup vs. the Warriors, but that's hardly a concern for his fantasy owners. So far this season, Bledsoe is racking up career-highs in scoring (22.9), FG percentage (46.8), 3-pointers (1.8), rebounds (4.1) and steals (1.9).

Eric Bledsoe (knee) is doing well and is the probable starter for Friday against the Warriors.

He did not look right on Wednesday and the Suns will have him tonight for their biggest home game of the season. Bledsoe is a terrific on-ball defender, but we'll see how he handles the passing of the Warriors. He should have a nice stat line tonight as long as he can stay healthy.
Nov 27 - 5:10 PM

Eric Bledsoe returned from a one-game absence on Wednesday against the Pelicans with 18 points, two rebounds, seven assists, two blocks and one 3-pointer.

He only made 5-of-16 from the field and turned the ball over four times. Bledsoe also suffered what appeared to be an aggravation of his left knee injury, so we're going to throw him on the injury report until further notice. The Suns have a big game at home against the Warriors on Friday, so he'll want to be out there for that one.

Eric Bledsoe (knee) will play against the Pelicans on Wednesday.

He has been dealing with some left knee soreness and should be ready to roll. It's worth mentioning his right knee is the "bad" knee in his career with the multiple meniscus tears. Get Bledsoe in your lineups and this may help Brandon Knight, who is better off the ball.
Nov 25 - 8:17 PM

Eric Bledsoe (left knee) is likely headed for a game-time decision for Wednesday's game against the Pelicans.

Bledsoe said that he's no longer feeling any pain in his left knee, but he wants to make sure that there's no discomfort, and he will continue to undergo treatment throughout the day. Bledsoe will test his knee during pregame warmups, so we likely won't have official confirmation on his status until just prior to the tip. Bledsoe likely has his eyes fixated on Friday's matchup with the undefeated Warriors, so it wouldn't be shocking to see him play it safe and sit out Wednesday's game against the 3-11 Pelicans. Brandon Knight will be the primary beneficiary of a Bledsoe absence.
Nov 25 - 1:56 PM

Eric Bledsoe's left knee has improved, but he remains questionable for Wednesday's game against the Pelicans.

Bledsoe sat out Monday's loss to the Spurs with a sore left knee, and it remains unclear if he'll play tonight against the Pelicans. If he's unable to give it a go, Brandon Knight would see a spike to his usage rate with guys like T.J. Warren and P.J. Tucker seeing some increased opportunity for minutes. Stay tuned.
Nov 25 - 1:15 PM

Eric Bledsoe (left knee soreness) will not play on Monday vs. the Spurs.

He was expected to be a game-time decision, but his knee must have been giving him some problems in warmups. Bledsoe briefly left Sunday's game vs. the Pelicans with a leg injury, so it's unclear if the two issues are related. To be clear, Bledsoe returned to Sunday's game and appeared to be moving fine. Until we get a further update, Bledsoe should be considered day-to-day. Brandon Knight will be incredibly busy on Monday, while more opportunities should fall to guys like Archie Goodwin and Devin Booker.
Nov 23 - 7:33 PM

Eric Bledsoe briefly exited Sunday's game with a leg injury, but he still filled it up with 29 points (7-of-15 FGs, 11-of-12 FTs), seven rebounds, six assists and one steal.

EB has at least 20 points and two 3-pointers in eight consecutive games, and he's adding enough rebounds and assists for first-round value in 8-cat leagues. His leg didn't seem to bother him and we're leaving him off the injury report, but it can't hurt to double-check his status prior to Monday's game.
Nov 22 - 9:08 PM

Eric Bledsoe exited Sunday's game with an apparent left leg injury, but he has since returned.

Bledsoe looked uncomfortable to begin the second half, and he was walking with a different gait after returning, but fortunately it doesn't seem like a serious issue. We should have more details about his injury after the game.
Nov 22 - 7:31 PM

Eric Bledsoe scored 22 points against the Nuggets on Friday, adding one rebound, three assists, two steals, one block and two 3-pointers.

He just will not slow down with seven consecutive 20-point games. In that span, he's averaged 24.3 points, 4.1 boards, 5.9 assists, 1.9 steals and 2.1 treys on 51.6 percent from the field and 82.9 percent from the line. He's No. 8 in eight cat and No. 15 in nine-cat leagues right now.
Nov 21 - 3:19 AM

Eric Bledsoe and Brandon Knight combined to score 44 of the Suns' 97 points on Wednesday, but they shot just 15-of-42 from the field in a home loss.

Bledsoe added six rebounds, seven assists and two steals vs. Chicago, while Knight added three boards, four assists, one steal and five turnovers. The loss snaps a three-game win streak for Phoenix but their next game is vs. the Nuggets, whom they destroyed by 24 points last week.
Nov 19 - 1:15 AM

Eric Bledsoe kept it going against the Lakers on Monday with 21 points on 8-of-16 from the field, adding one rebound, three assists, two steals and two 3-pointers in just 28 minutes.

You'd be hard-pressed to find a more efficient high-volume player than Bledsoe right now. Among players with at least 25 minutes per game and a usage rate greater than 25 in their last five games (37 players), nobody has a higher true shooting percentage than Bledsoe's 67.2. He's a first-round asset on the season and he seems like a lock to be a top-25 player.
Nov 17 - 1:43 AM

Jeff Hornacek praised Eric Bledsoe's improvement in "seeing the game a lot better now."

"He is at the stage where he is looking how our play is developing and how can I get my guys a shot and be open and that’s great. That’s another level that we need from him," the coach said. After an offseason where Bledsoe stepped up to the challenges presented to him by the team, Mini-LeBron is averaging 23.2 points, 4.4 rebounds, 6.2 assists, 2.1 steals, 0.6 blocks and 1.6 3-pointers on a career-high 49.7 percent shooting. Yeah, he's a stud.
Nov 16 - 12:30 PM

Eric Bledsoe was on fire during a 105-81 win over the Nuggets on Saturday, making 11-of-16 from the field for 30 points with seven rebounds, four assists, two steals and three 3-pointers.

He is absolutely rolling right now. Bledsoe is getting to the paint at will, making 48 percent of his mid-range shots, and knocking down 40 percent of his treys. He has averages of 23.2 points, 4.4 boards, 6.2 dimes, 2.1 steals and 1.6 treys on 49.4 percent from the field and 80.4 percent from the line. He's No. 7 in nine-cat and No. 6 in eight-cat on the season.
