Eric3Clippers point guard Eric Bledsoe practiced Tuesday and showed enough that Coach Vinny Del Negro and the organization are considering  sending him to play in the NBA’s Development League.

Bledsoe, a second-year player, has missed the entire season recovering from surgery to repair a torn lateral meniscus in his right knee.

Del Negro said he might not be able to play until February.

The coach said after practice Tuesday that the Clippers don’t  have a timetable for sending  Bledsoe to the  D-League team in Bakersfield.

“We’re talking about seeing if he can go down and play a couple games maybe in the D-League and giving him some experience, in terms of just getting his mind right, getting some flow into the game,” Del Negro said. “We don’t have any practices and there’s no chance for him to get out there and play.”
