Len scored 12 points (5-13 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT) while adding 11 rebounds and four blocks in 36 minutes during Tuesday's 112-97 loss to the Heat. The Suns' young frontcourt of Len and Marquese Chriss held their own in this one but didn't get enough support from their teammates to pull off the road upset. The double-double was Len's eighth of the season, but his first since Jan. 24.
Coach Earl Watson said Len (hip) will be "ready to go" for Wednesday's game against the Kings, Craig Grialou of ArizonaSports.com reports. Len has missed the last two games with a minor hip injury, but has made enough progress in his recovery to make a return to the court. It's yet to be announced whether or not he'll instantly jump back into the starting lineup at center, so look out for another update at some point prior to tip-off. If Len ultimately comes off the bench, Marquese Chriss would be in line for another start.
Len (hip) is aiming to return to action Wednesday against the Kings, Doug Haller of The Arizona Republic reports. While it's too early to know for sure, Len said that he'll try to play Wednesday, which would end a streak of two straight absences due to a minor hip injury. Expect a more definitive update after shootaround, and if Len is indeed able to play, it's unclear if he'd return to the starting lineup at center right away. Either way, Alan Williams represents a better fantasy option at center than Len after turning in double-doubles in seven of his last nine outings.
Len (hip) will miss Sunday's tilt against the Trail Blazers, Doug Haller of AZCentral Sports reports. Len will miss his second consecutive outing due to an unspecified hip injury, and coach Earl Watson is likely in no rush to get him back out on the floor due to their current place in the standings. In his place, Derrick Jones Jr. will draw another start and will likely be in for a 25-minute workload.
Len (hip) is questionable for Sunday's tilt against the Trail Blazers, Doug Haller of AZCentral Sports reports. Len was forced to miss Saturday's tilt against the Mavericks -- in which Derrick Jones Jr. drew the start -- and now is questionable for the second half of a back-to-back set. If he's unable to go, it seems likely that Jones will get the start once more and could see around 25 minutes of action.
