The Phoenix Suns will lose their best player, Eric Bledsoe, for the rest of the season after he underwent surgery to repair his torn meniscus.

Shams Charania of Yahoo Sports confirmed the bad news via Twitter for the Suns, who are currently struggling in the current 2015-2016 NBA Season.

The injury is seen as a big blow to the Suns’ campaign as they will be losing Bledsoe, who is the team leader in points at 20.4, a career-high for the 26-year-old guard. Bledsoe also averages 4.0 rebounds, 6.1 assists and 2.0 steals for the Suns, which has only 12 wins against 21 losses so far this season and is at 12th place in the Western Conference.

Bledsoe was injured in the team's home loss to Philadelphia last Saturday, Dec. 26. The Suns expect their star player to be ready for training camp next season.

Bledsoe already has a history with knee injuries in his NBA career, with surgeries to his right knee in 2011 and 2014.

Without Bledsoe, point guard Brandon Knight is expected to have more scoring load. T.J. Warren, P.J. Tucker and Devin Booker are also expected to have an increased role for the Suns.
