Phoenix Suns leading scorer Eric Bledsoe had season-ending surgery on Tuesday to repair a torn meniscus in his left knee.

The Suns said in a statement that Bledsoe would undergo rehab and is expected to return “to full playing status for the start of training camp next fall.”

Guard Bledsoe suffered the injury on Saturday during a loss to the Philadelphia 76ers. He was averaging 20.4 points and 6.1 assists in 31 games this NBA season.

Bledsoe had surgery to remove damaged meniscus in 2014. That operation sidelined him for more than two months.
