Eric Bledsoe will return to the Phoenix Suns' lineup in the coming week and is expected to play no earlier than Sunday at Golden State and no later than next Wednesday against Cleveland.
Bledsoe underwent arthroscopic surgery Jan. 10 and has been rehabilitating with significant recent progress.
Bledsoe participated in full-court, five-on-five scrimmaging on Wednesday for the third time in five days.
“You don’t know how they’ll come back,” Jeff Hornacek said. “We might bring Eric in off the bench a little bit. We hope he’s there at the end of game. If you throw him right into the starting lineup, it might screw you up for a few games."
Bledsoe has averaged 18.0 points and 5.8 assists this season and the Suns have a 16-8 record with him.
