The Phoenix Suns were without point guard Eric Bledsoe during the Suns' 104-98 victory last night over the Orlando Magic.  Paul Coro, who covers the Suns for ascsports and The Arizona Republic tweeted prior to the game about Bledsoe's status.

The Suns went with two shooting guards, Gerald Green and Goran Dragic in Bledsoe's absence.  Green has 20 points and 8 rebounds in 35 minutes.  Dragic scored 23 and handed out 13 assists.  Archie Goodwin was the only other guard to see action and he was scoreless in 13 minutes.

Bledsoe has missed the last four games entering tonight and last played against the Brooklyn Nets on November 15.  The four-year NBA veteran is in his first season with the Suns after playing his first three seasons with the Los Angeles Clippers.  In nine games this season, Bledsoe is averaging 20.4 points, 4.6 rebounds and 4 assists per game. Those numbers are huge jumps from his career averages of 7.3 points, 3.2 assists and 2.7 rebounds per game.
