The Phoenix Suns will get a much needed lift starting tonight against Cleveland.

Their electric guard Eric Bledsoe is set to return after missing two months due to knee surgery. The Suns are just (17-16) without Bledsoe after starting the season (19-11). Now the Suns find themselves currently out of the playoffs in the western conference.

Head coach Jeff Hornacek is excited to have Bledsoe back.

“If he looks like he’s the same guy that he was earlier in the season, maybe it (a return to the starting lineup) is quicker than not, but if it takes him a while to get used to stuff, maybe it’s longer,” Hornacek said.

Bledsoe was averaging 18 points, 5.8 assists, 4.3 rebounds and 1.5 steals before his injury.
