[Introduction] According to reports, Eric Bledsoe has undergone right knee meniscus removal surgery and is expected to rest for 4-6 weeks.
– Can come back in 6 weeks.
In order not to let the season be reimbursed, Bledsoe did not choose to repair the meniscus, but removed it directly.
Bledsoe meniscus removal surgery
On January 14th, , according to Phoenix media reports, Sun’s new core Eric Bledsoe has chosen knee meniscus removal surgery. Since he did not choose knee repair surgery, his recuperation time will be greatly reduced.
The return is about 4-6 weeks away, which means that Bledsoe can return to the game this season.
On December 31, 2013, the Suns challenged the Clippers away. It was in this game that Bledsoe injured his knee meniscus. After that, the Suns announced that he would take an indefinite truce and undergo surgery.
Since many players in the league have experienced torn menisci, we more or less understand that there are only two types of surgical treatment, one is removal surgery, and the other is repair surgery.
The difference is that the recovery process of removal is fast, but there may be sequelae. Naturally, repair takes a long time and the effect will be better than removal.
The well-known Heat star Dwyane Wade underwent knee meniscus removal surgery during college in 2002. Until 2013, he publicly stated that due to his short-sightedness, his knees are now weaker than others.
And injuries are frequent.
For the Suns, Bledsoe is quite a dark horse, averaging 18 points, 5.8 assists, 4.3 rebounds and 1.5 steals per game.
If Bledsoe can come back as soon as possible, it will be good news.
Bledsoe’s excellent performance this season is the main reason why the Suns have become a dark horse in the West. If he can return to the game in the second half of the season, the Suns still have hope for the playoffs.
