As if losing to the Sixers wasn’t bringing enough bad vibes for a struggling team, the Phoenix Suns lost one of their key cogs on Saturday night.
Eric Bledsoe was injured midway through the second quarter:

Via Twitter, the official preliminary diagnosis from the team is a left knee sprain, adding that Bledsoe would be done for the night. Hopefully the upcoming medical tests will confirm that’s all it is and not something more serious that is so often feared with non-contact injuries.
Coming into tonight, Bledsoe was averaging career highs in points (20.9) and assists (6.3) with only a minor bump in minutes for a Suns team that has had a rough year, sitting at 12-19 amid more roster changes and a seemingly inevitable trade of Markieff Morris still to come.
