Alex Len scored 17 points with 15 rebounds, one assist and one 3-pointer in 32 minutes against the Kings on Tuesday.

When he's healthy, Len has been pretty solid this season. It's still tough to add him because he's had habitual ankle issues all season.

Alex Len (ankle) will play vs. the Kings on Tuesday.

It'll be interesting to see how coach Jay Triano juggles his lineups, considering his team is without Devin Booker, Elfrid Payton, T.J. Warren, Jared Dudley and Tyson Chandler. On paper it looks like Len could fare well, but deploy him at your own risk.

Alex Len (ankle) is listed as questionable for Tuesday's game vs. the Kings.

Len has been sidelined for three consecutive contests due to nagging ankle issues. Marquese Chriss has been the primary beneficiary in Len's absence. Chriss has scored in double-figures in each of his last eight games and is averaging 13.5 points (on 51.2 percent shooting), 8.0 rebounds, 1.1 steals and 1.3 blocks over this current eight-game stretch.

Alex Len (ankle) is listed as out against the Warriors on Sunday.

There were concerns about his ankle injury coming out of Maryland and those concerns have come true. Len's ankle problems are going to cost him in free agency. With him out, Marquese Chriss is heating up.

Alex Len (ankle) has been ruled out of Friday's game vs. the Rockets.

Len also missed Wednesday's game vs. the Clippers. Alan Williams logged 19 minutes off the Phoenix bench on Wednesday, but finished with just two points and five rebounds in 19 minutes. Marquese Chriss started and tallied 12 points, 13 rebounds and four steals over 31 minutes.

Alex Len (ankle) did not practice on Thursday, and he is listed as out for Friday against the Rockets.

When his ankle start to go, things get ugly for Len. Not practicing today probably means he's going to miss his second straight game. Alan Williams and Marquese Chriss will likely handle most of the center minutes with some Alec Peters mixed in.

Alex Len (ankle) will not play against the Clippers on Wednesday.

The ankle issue are back for Len and it's possible he misses more time here. Alan Williams is back and played 16 minutes in his return on Monday, so maybe he can get to 20 minutes tonight. The Suns will likely have to run a tight rotation with Len, Devin Booker (hand) and T.J. Warren (knee) out, so there could be some value in DFS tonight.

Alex Len - C - Suns

Alex Len (left ankle) is questionable to play Wednesday against the Clippers.

Len tweaked his ankle during the fourth quarter of Monday's loss to the Celtics, and given that this is Len's surgically repaired ankle, it wouldn't be surprising to see him spend some time on the shelf for the 19-56 Suns. If he sits, Marquese Chriss and Dragan Bender would log some additional minutes at center, and Alan Williams could see a slight bump in minutes. Check back for another update following Wednesday morning's shootaround.
Alex Len - C - Suns

Alex Len played just 14 minutes and hit 3-of-8 shots for eight points, six rebounds and a steal in Monday's 102-94 loss to the Celtics before leaving with a sprained ankle.

He appeared to sprain his left ankle early in the fourth quarter and never returned to the game, so he should be considered day-to-day going forward. If Len is out, guys like Alan Williams, Marquese Chriss and Dragan Bender will all see a boost, as Tyson Chandler's not expected to play again this season.

Alex Len - C - Suns

Alex Len scored 15 points with nine rebounds, one assist, one block and two steals during a 105-99 loss to the Magic on Saturday.

He's as hot as he has been all season with three outstanding games in a row. Maybe he's healthy or maybe he's feeling the pressure from Alan Williams (knee) getting close. Len is probably worth an add, but don't set your hopes too high.
Mar 24 - 9:52 PM
Alex Len - C - Suns

Alex Len scored 14 points with four rebounds, two assists and one turnover in 25 minutes against the Cavs on Friday.

That's four fairly solid games for Len and he's coming off a 19-12 game on Tuesday. He's probably worth a look if you need a center, but there's a good chance he'll be disappointing.
Mar 23 - 10:30 PM
Alex Len - C - Suns

Alex Len said he will "probably" move on from the Suns as a free agent this summer.

He hasn't ruled out a return to Phoenix, but it sure seems like the franchise wants to go in a different direction. "I’m looking forward to this offseason," Len said. "I think it’s going to be exciting. It’s the first time I’m actually going to have a chance to go where I want to go." Tyson Chandler isn't expected to play again this season and Alan Williams isn't expected to make his season debut until next week, so Len will get an opportunity to showcase himself on Friday and Saturday and will look to build off his 19-point performance with 12 rebounds, one assist and three blocks.

Alex Len - C - Suns

Alex Len erupted for 19 points, 12 rebounds, one assist and three blocks in Tuesday's 115-88 loss to the Pistons.

Len's minutes have been all over the place lately, but he's the only healthy center on the roster right now and the Suns needed his size against Andre Drummond. Len hit 9-of-11 shots and his only free throw, but it's hard to add a player that averaged 12.5 minutes in his previous March games. If you want to take a flier on him, give him a look for Phoenix's back-to-back set on Friday vs. Cleveland and Saturday vs. Orlando because Alan Williams (knee) won't make his debut until Monday at the earliest. Keep an eye out for any news on Tyson Chandler (neck, shoulder) though.
