The Phoenix Suns have shut down Eric Bledsoe for the remainder of the season.

“Bled’s been great, he had a great season, he played at a high level,” Watson said. “He’s been dominant all year. He’s taken a big leap in the right direction. There’s a lot of room for him to grow and he’s excited about that.”

Bledsoe recently said he had some pain in his left knee.

The Suns are hoping for a high lottery pick in this year's draft.
