07:29 AM ET 02.25 | To open the week, Eric Bledsoe played basketball again. It was not a game or even a practice but Bledsoe went beyond his individual knee rehabilitation work for the first time with about 30 minutes of three-on-three play against Suns teammates. "It was unbelievable," Bledsoe said after the closed workout. "I felt a little bit relieved. I just want to credit my teammates for coming in and playing with me." The Suns point guard has been out since a Jan. 10 right knee arthroscopy. His timetable for returning to full Suns practices is still unknown and then it will be three to four days beyond that before he could play in a game. ... Bledsoe said he still will "take his time" but admitted that patience has been difficult. He has missed 31 of the Suns' 55 games this season. The Suns were 16-8 with Bledsoe.

Get yourself fully healed before coming back. It's good for you and your future.

He needs to show more, though, if someone is going to offer him a max-ish level contract

I don't see a team offering up the world for him after being a starter for only 25 games

There's a chance he comes back before the playoffs.

There were some times last year with the Clippers, he played better than CP3... If he would stay healthy, he will get the money...
