The Suns' dynamic guard is ready to return after missing over 30 games.

Eric Bledsoe is set to return to the Phoenix Suns' lineup Wednesday when they host the Cleveland Cavaliersthe team officially announced. Bledsoe last played Dec. 30, missing 31 games since being forced out and undergoing surgery to remove part of his meniscus.

His return comes during the final stretch of the season while Phoenix tries to hang on to its playoff spot. The Suns are currently the No. 7 seed in the Western Conference, but both the Dallas Mavericks and Memphis Grizzlies are within one game of them. Phoenix is also in striking distance of the Golden State Warriors, just two games back.
