Eric Bledsoe has been in solid rehab for a week, now, but neither he nor Jeff Hornacek are able to speculate as to a return date.
“We’re doing everything possible to get him back as quickly as possible,” Hornacek said.
Bledsoe, meanwhile, feels for the team, which had won 12 of their last 16 games before learning the severity of the injury.
The Suns have lost six of their last ten games since Bledsoe went down. No matter how positive the early reports are on Bledsoe's work ethic in rehab you are best off dropping him, especially in roto leagues, as no matter how hard he works his return is still a long time away, that is if he returns at all this season.

Jed Lowrie left Monday's game with a thumb injury. He's going back to Houston Tuesday for an MRI.
In all likelihood Jonathan Villar or Marwin Gonzalez will fill in for Lowrie if he misses extended time, but there's an outside chance the first-place Astros call up uber-prospect Carlos Correa for his first major league taste. Correa is murdering the Texas League (Double-A) to the tune of .375/.429/.719 with four home runs and two stolen bases. He's worth a speculative add in competitive leagues until the situation becomes more clear. Astros GM Jeff Luhnow has hinted that he wouldn't be scared to "lift" Correa straight from Double-A at some point. Analysis: Spencer Silva
