LOS ANGELES, Calif. - The Los Angeles Clippers have assigned guard Eric Bledsoe to the Bakersfield Jam of the NBA Development League for a two-game rehabilitation assignment. He has been sidelined since having right knee surgery in October.

Clippers general manager Neil Olshey says if Bledsoe performs as expected, the team anticipates him rejoining them for the Clippers' trip to Denver on Saturday.

Bledsoe averaged 6.7 points, 3.6 assists and 2.8 rebounds in 81 games as a rookie last season.
