Suns G Eric Bledsoe is out indefinitely after team determined that he needs right knee surgery.
Bledsoe was having a career year in his first opportunity to start full-time with a team, but unfortunately Fantasy owners will now have to turn towards the wavier wire to replace the 24-year old shooting guard. One option could be his teammate Gerald Green who moved into the starting lineup when Bledsoe originally went down with his knee injury. In 16 games as a starter this season Gerald Green is averaging 15.7 pts, 2.9 3pts made, 2.8 rebs, 1.6 ast, and one-plus steals. If Green is unavailable we have some other possible replacements in this week's Waiver Wire article under the NBA Articles tab on our homepage.ANALYST: Michael Pichan
Jose Abreu was 0-for-4 on Saturday ending his seventeen game hitting streak.
During his seventeen hitting streak, Jose Abreu hit .318 and was only four short of his career high set last year in his rookie campaign. But he is now hitting .283 on the season and has fallen short on the power numbers so far this year. Abreu is hitting more ground balls (49.1%) this year yet his home run to fly ball ratio has fallen nine percentage points from 26.9 in 2014 to 17.1 this season. Since the whole offense has struggled, it is exacerbated when their best hitter is not hitting on all cylinders either. Abreu is solid, but maybe not worthy of the first round status he achieved after one season in the majors. Analysis: Greg Jewett
