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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
