The Phoenix Suns defeated the Milwaukee Bucks on Saturday by the score of 114-100. The loss dropped the Suns to 20-12, 3rd in the competitive Pacific Division. The Suns played without point guard Eric Bledsoe, who is still sidelined with a sprained knee.
As reported by the Associated Press through ESPN.com, Bledsoe will be out at least another week with a sprained right knee. The injury bothered Bledsoe against the Clippers on Monday and he sat out the last two games. The Suns announced yesterday that Bledsoe would be re-evaluated in a week.
Bledsoe and Goran Dragic have formed the double-point guard lineup that Phoenix has been using to get off to their quick start this season. Gearld Green has been manning the other guard position next to Dragic in Bledsoe's absence. Green had a team high 24 points on 9-of-14 shooting against the Bucks.
Bledsoe will miss most, if not all of, Phoenix's five-game trip that begins Tuesday night in Chicago. Bledsoe is in his fourth season out of Kentucky. In his first season with the Suns, Bledsoe is averaging 18 points, 5.8 assists and 4.3 rebounds per game.
