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.

Nationals placed Stephen Strasburg on the 15-day disabled list with neck tightness.
Something had to be wrong with Strasburg, given his season-long struggles. He has not shown his usual control with his off-speed pitches and needs to get healthy to return to his expected dominant self, and the DL trip is a start in that direction. There is no hint that the neck issue has been the cause of his problems this season, but at least he gets to take some time off to be examined and hopefully set on track to pitch well again.

Grizzlies are exploring signing center Greg Oden.
Oden, the former first overall draft pick in the 2007 draft, last played for the Heat in 2014. Knee injuries have interrupted his career, limiting him to two seasons with Portland and the aforementioned time with Miami. He may decide to attend the upcoming Grizzly free agent camp in June, but nothing is in concrete yet. Analysis: Ivar G. Anderson
