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 Reyes has been traded to the Colorado Rockies.
Reyes is going to the Rockies along with prospects in the trade sending Troy Tulowitzki to Toronto. While going to Coors Field is always good for a hitter, Reyes will now bat in a depleted lineup with the pitcher in front of him. He is still a top-five fantasy shortstop when healthy, but this trade is not likely to provide a huge boost to his fantasy value. There is also a pretty decent chance Reyes is traded again, which could hurt his fantasy value even further. Analysis: Steve Pimental
The Astros remain in pursuit of Tyson Ross.
Any trade would be borderline disastrous for Tyson Ross's fantasy value, but going to the American league would only make things worse. Ross has walked 4.18 batters per nine innings this season, and it is doubtful he could get away with that outside of PETCO Park. If you own Ross, it may be worth it to try to trade him now.
