PHOENIX (AP) — The Phoenix Suns say guard Eric Bledsoe will be out for at least another week with a sprained right knee.

The injury bothered Bledsoe in the Suns' victory over the Clippers on Monday and he sat out the team's home loss to Memphis on Thursday night.

After the morning shootaround on Saturday, the Suns issued a news release saying Bledsoe would miss Saturday night's game against Milwaukee and would be re-evaluated in a week.

Bledsoe and Goran Dragic have formed the double-point guard lineup that has Phoenix off to a surprisingly successful start to the season.

Bledsoe will miss most, if not all of, Phoenix's five-game trip that begins Tuesday night in Chicago.
