The Clippers added some clarity to the timeframe for when guard Eric Bledsoe would return from surgery to repair torn cartilage in his right knee.

Bledsoe had surgery Oct. 7 and is expected to be out six to eight weeks. The Clippers said that time period for Bledsoe to heal started Dec. 9 and the 6-1 point guard probably will be out of action until late January.

Bledsoe, who turned 22 this week, is a second-year player out of Kentucky. As a rookie, he played in 81 games and started 25. He averaged 6.7 points, 3.6 assists, 2.8 rebounds and 1.1 assists.
