Alex Len scored eight points with four rebounds and one turnover in 12 minutes against the Warriors on Wednesday.
As per usual, foul trouble cut his minutes down early, and Alan Williams was terrific off the bench. Len was actually playing well with a double-double in his last game, so his owners shouldn't totally press the panic button. Although, his floor is a lot lower now that Dragan Bender is in the mix.

Alex Len - F/C - Suns

Alex Len scored 12 points on 5-of-6 shooting with seven rebounds and two blocks in 16 minutes vs. the Blazers on Saturday.

After getting a quick hook in the first quarter due to a pair of fouls, Len had a monster third quarter to salvage his night before fouling out with just over three minutes to go in the fourth. Len has been trending up for a while with averages of 10.2 points, 7.2 rebounds, 1.4 blocks and 1.1 steals on 49.3 percent shooting over his last 10, so he’s a solid option on Sunday vs. Houston. With Len and Alan Williams both hitting restricted free agency this summer, it will be interesting to see which direction the franchise goes in.

Alex Len - F/C - Suns

Alex Len scored 12 points with three rebounds, one block and two turnovers in 18 minutes against the Clippers on Thursday.

He held his own in the paint against DeAndre Jordan. Len has struggled against some bigger fives due to giving up position, but he's been much better in that regard lately. His fantasy owners should be pleased with his output over his last five, averaging 10.8 points, 6.0 boards, 1.4 blocks and 1.0 steals. Plus, Alan Williams has taken a step back in the last two weeks. Len is worth owning in standard leagues.

Alex Len - F/C - Suns

Alex Len scored eight points with three rebounds and one block against the Hornets on Sunday.

He's been able to keep his fouls down for the most part and he's actually had a strong five games. In those losses, he averaged 10.6 points, 7.6 boards, 1.8 blocks and 0.4 steals. Alan Williams is the preferred player here, but Len is still someone to consider for those looking to bolster points, boards and blocks.

Alex Len - F/C - Suns

Alex Len finished with 11 points (on 4-of-6 shooting), 11 rebounds, two steals and two blocks in 25 minutes in a blowout loss to the Nets on Thursday.

This was the second straight double-double for Lin, who tallied 12 points and 11 boards on Tuesday. At the advanced age of 23, Len was actually the oldest starter for the Suns on Thursday. With T.J. Warren (foot) ruled out, Phoenix rolled out the youngest starting lineup in NBA history, according to Elias Sports Bureau. The average age of Devin Booker, Marquese Chriss, Tyler Ulis, Derrick Jones Jr. and Len is just 21 years, 14 days.

Alex Len - F/C - Suns

Alex Len played 36 minutes and hit 5-of-13 shots for 12 points, 11 rebounds and four blocks in Tuesday's loss to the Heat.

Alan Williams missed this one with an illness so Len was the man in the middle and came through with a solid line. But Williams has been outplaying him from the bench and should be back sooner than later.

Alex Len - F/C - Suns

Alex Len played through foul trouble on Sunday to post 11 points, seven rebounds, one assist and one 3-pointer in 21 minutes.

Len shot 3-of-12 from the field in his previous game, so the shooting was an improvement, but he struggled to check Andre Drummond without fouling him. Like clockwork, Len was again outplayed by backup big man Alan Williams, who notched 11 points, 12 rebounds, two assists, two steals and one blocks without any turnovers in 26 minutes.
Mar 19 - 7:20 PM
Alex Len - F/C - Suns

Alex Len scored nine points with 10 rebounds, two assists, three steals and two blocks against the Magic on Friday.

This was easily his best game in some time. Len hit the glass and didn't give up low-post position, both of which have been major problems. We're not ready to say "he's back" just yet, but maybe he can get it going. He'll get Andre Drummond on Sunday, so give him a look if you're looking for a big man to stream on Sunday.

Alex Len - F/C - Suns

Alex Len (hip) scored six points during a start with eight rebounds and two steals in 17 minutes against the Kings on Wednesday.

It's tough to tell what's wrong with Len, but he's just not right. He and Alan Williams are both restricted free agents this summer, so the Suns may not keep both. Len just can't be used in most fantasy leagues right now.
Mar 16 - 1:54 AM
Alex Len - F/C - Suns

Coach Earl Watson said Alex Len (hip) is ready to go against the Kings on Wednesday.

Watson said Len will be "fine" for this game. The Suns seem to like the idea of playing Marquese Chriss at the five, so we'll see where Len fits in from here. He can stay on the wire and this news doesn't really affect Alan Williams too much, assuming Tyson Chandler is still out of the rotation.

Alex Len - F/C - Suns

Alex Len (hip) said he will try to play Wednesday vs. the Kings.

Len has spent the past two games on the sidelines with a minor hip injury, but perhaps he'll be able to return to the court for Wednesday's game. He was playing like garbage prior to going down, so it'll be interesting to see if he's immediately re-inserted into the starting five, or if head coach Earl Watson decides to stick with rookie Derrick Jones Jr. Either way, Len isn't worth owning in most leagues.
Mar 14 - 5:52 PM
Alex Len - F/C - Suns

Alex Len (hip) will not play vs. the Blazers on Sunday.

Len has been dogged by nagging injuries for much of his career, and the Suns have no reason to risk a major setback with nothing to play for but draft lottery balls. He hasn't even been good as a healthy starter, so there's no incentive to hold him in most leagues.
Mar 12 - 8:09 PM
Alex Len - F/C - Suns

Alex Len (hip) is questionable to play Sunday vs. Portland.

Len sat out Saturday's win over the Mavs, which resulted in rookie Derrick Jones Jr. moving into the starting five, and Alan Williams remained in his mid-20 reserve role. Jones may be getting the start again tonight if Len can't play, but Williams is the guy you want to target in fantasy hoops.

Alex Len - F/C - Suns

Alen Len (hip) will not play on Saturday vs. the Mavericks.

This is the first we are hearing of a hip injury for Len, but like they've done in the past, the Suns will likely be cautious with the big man until he's 100 percent. While Alan Williams is the obvious beneficiary here, it's going to be interesting to see if Tyson Chandler makes his first appearance since the All-Star break. Len can be dropped to the wire in most leagues.
Mar 11 - 8:25 PM
Alex Len - F/C - Suns

Alex Len finally had a nice game on Tuesday vs. the Wizards, scoring eight points on 3-of-4 shooting with 11 rebounds, one steal and four blocks in 22 minutes.

Don't get too excited, as both Alan Williams and Marquese Chriss fouled out of this game. Len didn't even a block a single shot in his five previous outings, so Williams is still the center you want to own in Phoenix going forward. Another strong game vs. the Lakers on Thursday will put Len back on the radar, though.
