Description: Suns center Alex Len will miss one week after suffering a broken nose on Monday according to AZcentral.com.
Insight: Len can be dropped in redraft leagues because he will miss more than half of the Suns remaining games. Brandan Wright is again a must-own player without Len in the lineup.
 
3/21/2015 7:36:00 PM
Description: Suns center Alex Len (ankle) will play on Saturday versus Houston.
Insight: He was doubtful earlier in the day, but is apparently ready to roll. Brandon Wright will lose value.
 
3/2/2015 10:00:00 PM
Description: Suns center Alex Len was ejected for wrestling with Hassan Whiteside on Monday night.
Insight: Things got very heated in this game, and Len was part of the action. He had 10 points and 11 rebounds before departing early.
 
2/20/2015 10:51:00 PM
Description: Suns center Alex Len had a terrific game in 35 minutes on Friday versus the Timberwolves.
Insight: Len had 11 points, 10 rebounds and six blocks. He has played at least 30 minutes in four straight games, so Len is clearly over his ankle injury. He should be owned in all leagues.
 
2/10/2015 6:41:00 PM
Description: Suns center Alex Len will not play on Tuesday versus the Rockets due to an ankle injury.
Insight: Arizona Sports Reporter Craig Grialou, however, tweeted that if it were a playoff game, Len would play. Take that for what it's worth. What it probably means is Len will be able to return in the first game after the All-Star break on Feb. 20.
 
2/7/2015 10:28:00 AM
Description: Suns center Alex Len has been diagnosed with a sprained right ankle and is expected to sit through the All-Star break.
Insight: Len averaged a season best 7.4 ppg, 7.6 rpg in 15 January games as the starter, but had not played well in his last three contests. He may have hit the "wall." Len played just 362 minutes in 2013-14, but has logged 1,041 minutes so far this season.
 
2/6/2015 2:30:00 PM
Description: Suns center Alex Len took a hard fall and left the arena on crutches, but X-rays were negative and he's been diagnosed with a sprained right ankle. Update: Len has been downgraded to out for Friday versus Utah.
Insight: Len averaged a season best 7.4 ppg, 7.6 rpg in 15 January games as the starter, but had not played well in his last three contests. He may have hit the "wall." Len played just 362 minutes in 2013-14, but has logged 1,041 minutes so far this season.

Description: Suns center Alex Len took a hard fall and left the arena on crutches, but X-rays were negative and he's been diagnosed with a sprained right ankle.
Insight: Len averaged a season best 7.4 ppg, 7.6 rpg in 15 January games as the starter, but had not played well in his last three contests. He may have hit the "wall." Len played just 362 minutes in 2013-14, but has logged 1,041 minutes so far this season.
 
Cold3/11/2014 9:49:00 AM
Description: Suns rookie center Alex Len has returned to his backup role with Miles Plumlee back to health.
Insight: Like most rookies, Len's production is based on court time and he hasn't gotten much of that this season. He's safe to drop in all leagues.
 
1/21/2014 3:36:00 PM
Description: Suns rookie center Alex Len (sore knee) is probable for Wednesday's game against Indiana.
Insight: His buised knee didn't keep him out of practice so he should be a go. Like most rookies, Len's production is inconsistent. He had nine points and six boards in 16 minutes on Sunday.
 
11/15/2013 11:29:00 AM
Description: Suns rookie center Alex Len (ankle) is questionable for Friday's game against Brooklyn due to a swollen left ankle.
Insight: He's been backing up Miles Plumlee and not seeing enough playing time to be of value to fantasy owners.
 
10/28/2013 7:59:00 PM
Description: Suns rookie center Alex Len (ankle) practiced Monday, according to Paul Coro of azcentral.com.
Insight: Len had surgery on both ankles in a two month stretch from May to July, but coach Jeff Hornacek clarified Monday that his recent ankle tendinitis was unrelated. He's expected to back up Miles Plumlee to begin the season.
 
10/26/2013 3:41:00 PM
Description: Suns rookie center Alex Len (ankle) could miss the start of the regular season, according to Paul Coro of azcentral.com.
Insight: Len had surgery on both ankles in July and might still be dealing with something. Miles Plumlee is expected to begin the season as the starting center, so Len isn't worth owning in standard leagues.
 
8/18/2013 10:49:00 AM
Description: Suns rookie Alex Len expects to be ready for training camp next month. SOURCE: Arizona Republic
Insight: Len had ankle surgery in July and says he's at about 85-to-90 percent right now. Even if he's healthy, the former Maryland star isn't likely to start right away.
 
7/14/2013 5:33:00 PM
Description: Craig Grialou from 620 AM KTAR in Phoenix is reporting that Suns rookie Alex Len recently had surgery on his right ankle.
Insight: Great, so now he's got two bad ankles. Len could have gone to Cleveland with the first pick in last month's draft but the Cavaliers and three other teams passed on him because his left ankle was injured. We'll see if the ankles hold up during the regular season.
 
6/27/2013 8:41:00 PM
Description: Alex Len didn't go No. 1 but he still went top five. The Phoenix Suns took him with the fifth pick in this year's draft.
Insight: Some people thought Len could go to the Cavs with the first overall pick but they ended up taking UNLV forward Anthony Bennett. Len has impressive range for a 7-footer and he's strong enough to hold his own in the low post. He'll be a bit of a project at first but the 20-year-old has plenty of upside.
