Eric Bledsoe (illness) did not practice on Thursday.
Bledsoe was able to play through his illness on Wednesday, and he was simply set home for a rest day today in an effort to have him available for Friday's game vs. Portland. We're going to hold him off the injury report for now, but owners should check back for another update on Bledsoe's status following Friday morning's shootaround. Mar 26 - 3:19 PM

Eric Bledsoe scored 20 points with nine assists vs. the Mavericks on Sunday, adding six boards, three steals, two blocks and one 3-pointer in 37 minutes.

He scored a career-high 34 points vs. the Rockets on Sunday, and his play has given the Suns some hope to pursue a playoff berth in the loaded Western Conference. Brandon Knight's (ankle) return shouldn't slow him down much, and Bledsoe should be locked in as an elite asset down the stretch.
Mar 23 - 12:04 AM

Eric Bledsoe took over against the Rockets during a 117-102 victory on Saturday, scoring a career-high 34 points with eight boards, four assists, three steals, one block and two 3-pointers in 37 minutes.

He owns the Rockets and put up another 30-point game against them earlier this season. This was a huge win for the Suns to get them within 2.5 games of the No. 8 seed in the Western Conference. The Suns get another important game on Sunday against the Mavs at home, so expect Bledsoe to torch Rajon Rondo. For what it's worth, Bledsoe averaged 14.9 points, 5.7 boards, 5.9 assists, 1.9 steals and 0.9 treys in his previous 15 games on the second half of a back-to-back set.
Mar 22 - 12:11 AM

Eric Bledsoe made 2-of-15 from the field for five points with 11 rebounds, two assists, four steals and three turnovers in 37 minutes against the Pelicans on Thursday.

Yikes. He gets a pass here because he's had a solid March to this point. In his previous games this month, Bledsoe averaged 17.3 points, 5.1 boards, 7.0 dimes, 1.6 steals and 1.5 treys on 49.5 percent from the field. He gets to face off against Pat Beverley in Houston on Saturday.
Mar 20 - 12:42 AM

Eric Bledsoe led the Suns with an all-around gem on Sunday, posting 21 points, nine rebounds, 11 assists and two steals while shooting 8-of-15 from the field.

One of EB's makes came from downtown and his owners are loving life without Brandon Knight (ankle) in the lineup. Over the past four games Bledsoe is notching 19.8 points on 28-of-52 shooting, a nice step up from his season mark of 45.7 percent. The lone caveat for Bledsoe's owners is that the Suns are one of four teams with only three games on the schedule next week.
Mar 15 - 11:53 PM

Eric Bledsoe scored 18 points against the Wolves on Wednesday during a 106-97 win, adding two boards, nine dimes, one steal and two 3-pointers.

It was a little disappointing for Bledsoe, but Ricky Rubio has done a very good job on point guards these days. Bledsoe had the ball in his hands a ton and he'll have plenty of massive lines going forward. He gets a sub-par matchup against the Hawks on Friday and will face the Knicks on Sunday.
Mar 12 - 2:03 AM

Eric Bledsoe continued his sub-par play against the Cavs on Saturday during a 89-79 loss, making 3-of-12 from the field for seven points, four rebounds, nine assists, one steal and one 3-pointer.

The final score is misleading because the Suns were down 30 points for much of this game. The Suns actually outscored the Cavs 27-9 in the fourth quarter. As for Bledsoe, we're still waiting for another eruption to follow up his big game against OKC last week. He should be better and could be a top-three SG the rest of the way. The Suns starting unit made just 16-of-54 (29.6 percent) from the field and had one of their worst games of the season. Go ahead and throw this game out and hopefully the Suns are better against the Warriors on Monday.
Mar 7 - 9:57 PM

Eric Bledsoe came up short against his former teammate, Goran Dragic, during a 115-98 loss on Monday with 20 points, four boards, three assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 34 minutes.

He had a very slow start tonight and picked it up late. However, Bledsoe's team was lit up on the outside on defense and that's been a trend lately. Bledsoe has been a disappointment in most games since the trade deadline, but there is still a very good chance he turns it on late. In his previous games without Dragic, he averaged 17.2 points, 7.7 boards 6.5 boards, 1.2 blocks, 1.3 steals and 1.0 treys in those six. That's still pretty good.
Mar 2 - 11:25 PM

Eric Bledsoe was on the other end of the spectrum on Saturday during a 101-74 loss to the Spurs with 12 points, six rebounds, no assists and two turnovers.

Brandon Knight went down tonight, which actually might hurt Bledsoe a tad. In fact, Bledsoe was making a sterling 70.0 effective field goal percentage off Knight passes before tonight. Basically, fantasy owners can throw this game out the window for every Sun. Alex Len (six points and nine boards), P.J. Tucker (five points and 11 boards) and Markieff Morris (10 points and two boards) also didn't play well.
Feb 28 - 11:35 PM

Eric Bledsoe was a superstar against the Thunder on Thursday during a 117-113 overtime win, making 11-of-16 from the field for 28 points with 13 rebounds, nine assists, one steal, four blocks and two 3-pointers.

That's good for an effective field goal percentage of 75.0. In what was a very uptempo game, Bledsoe seemed to be in total control, which has been the story for his game lately. In his last six games, Bledsoe averaged 20.7 points, 7.3 boards, 7.2 assists, 1.7 steals, 1.3 blocks and 1.3 treys on 50.6 percent from the field. People don't call him Mini-LeBron for no reason.
Feb 27 - 2:48 AM

Eric Bledsoe scored 21 points on 8-of-18 shooting (including two threes) with seven rebounds, 10 assists, two steals, one block and six turnovers in Monday's home loss to the Celtics.

With Goran Dragic and Isaiah Thomas out and just Brandon Knight coming in, don't be surprised if Bledsoe posts first and second round value in 8- and 9-cat leagues, respectively.
Feb 24 - 1:10 AM

Eric Bledsoe scored 12 points on 4-of-11 shooting (no threes) with seven rebounds and six assists in Friday's loss.

Bledsoe's stock improved with Goran Dragic and Isaiah Thomas heading out, but with Brandon Knight and Marcus Thornton heading in there's only so much he can gain in fantasy leagues.
Feb 21 - 1:35 AM

Eric Bledsoe returned from a one-game personal absence to finish Tuesday's 118-127 loss to the Rockets with a team-high 32 points, two 3-pointers, four rebounds, four assists, two steals and one block.

Bledsoe has been hot offensively and he didn't cool off while missing Sunday's game, as he finished 9-of-19 from the field and 12-of-13 from the FT line vs. Houston. Fantasy owners have to be excited about Bledsoe's production as he's piled up top-30 value in 9-cat leagues, and is in the top-20 when you ignore turnovers. Expect more of the same after the break, especially with Phoenix clawing their way toward a playoff berth.
Feb 10 - 11:29 PM

Eric Bledsoe will return to the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the Rockets.

Bledsoe missed Sunday's game against the Kings due to the birth of his child, but he'll be back in action on Tuesday. He'll have a favorable matchup in what will be a very fast-paced game, and he looks like a quality plug-and-play option in daily leagues. His return to the lineup will hurt the value of Isaiah Thomas.
Feb 10 - 5:56 PM

Eric Bledsoe is expected to return for Tuesday's game against the Rockets.

He missed Sunday due to the birth of his child. The Suns lost their fourth game of the season on a buzzer-beating shot in Sacramento on Sunday and Bledsoe probably would have made the difference. His fantasy owners can lock him into their lineups this week. Expect to see less output from Isaiah Thomas.
