Len appears to be the "likeliest option" to open the upcoming season as the Hawks' starting center, Chris Kirschner of The Athletic reports.
With incumbent starter Dewayne Dedmon leaving the Hawks for Sacramento in free agency, Len is expected to head into training camp ahead of offseason pickup Damian Jones and rookie second-round pick Bruno Fernando on the depth chart at center. The Hawks could always shift John Collins over from power forward to center when coach Lloyd Pierce prefers to run small-ball lineups, but Len noted that he's comfortable playing alongside Collins in tandem due to their differing skill sets. Len doesn't seem likely to crack the 30-minute mark on a regular basis, but any notable uptick from the 20.1 minutes per game he averaged in 2018-19 could be enough to make the big man a nightly double-double threat.
Len recorded 20 points (6-17 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 6-8 FT), 10 rebounds, three assists and three blocks across 31 minutes in Wednesday's 135-134 loss to the Pacers.
Len has now averaged 26.5 points and 9.0 rebounds over the last two games, demonstrating the peak of his performance at the end of the season. While this is what Len could bring to the table for any suitable team, it's more likely his ceiling rather than nightly numbers given his past track record. While not a safe block in the rebuilding process in Atlanta, Len tried to prove his size and worth down the stretch to the front office.
Len compiled a career-high 33 points (13-23 FG, 6-12 3Pt, 1-7 FT) to go with eight rebounds, four assists and two blocks in 34 minutes in Sunday's 115-107 loss to the Bucks.
Len's production had already been on the upswing after the Hawks decided to shut down top center Dewayne Dedmon (ankle) for the season in late March, but the 25-year-old climbed to new heights Sunday with high-usage starters Trae Young (rest) and John Collins (rest) both sitting out. Both players seem likely to return for Wednesday's season finale against the Pacers, but Len should still have a large enough role on offense to remain worth deploying in lineups.
Len had 11 points (4-6 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 1-2 FT), three rebounds, and one block in 14 minutes during Wednesday's 130-122 win over the 76ers.
Len (foot) had been listed as questionable due to foot soreness but was able to play in this one. He has reached double figures in scoring in six straight showings, but this was the first time in the last four games that he was limited to less than 27 minutes. With Dewayne Dedmon (ankle) out for the season and Omari Spellman (ankle) injured as well, Len seems likely to continue earning a decent share of minutes across the final three games of 2018-19.
Len (foot) will play Wednesday against the 76ers.
Len was questionable due to foot soreness, but he's ultimately feeling good enough to take the court. He's scored at least 20 points in each of the past two games.
Len is questionable for Wednesday's game against the 76ers due to bilateral foot soreness, Chris Kirschner of The Athletic reports.
Len played 28 minutes Tuesday, scoring 20 points for a second straight game, but he's picked up an injury in the process. If he's sidelined Wednesday, Deyonta Davis figures to draw a start.
Len registered 21 points (7-11 FG, 4-5 3Pt, 3-6 FT), five rebounds, three assists, a steal and a block over 28 minutes Tuesday against the Spurs.
Len scored 12 of his 21 points from beyond the arc, where he shot 80 percent. He also contributed across the board, adding to his fantasy totals. The 25-year-old Maryland product is averaging an impressive 13.7 points and 5.3 boards over his previous 1-0 matchups.
Len totaled 23 points (10-15 FG, 3-6 3Pt) and six rebounds across 27 minutes in the Hawks' overtime victory over the Bucks on Sunday.
Len contributed a sizeable point total in Sunday's victory on an efficient 10-15 shooting, nailing three triples in the process. Len has the ability to pop off for big scoring nights, but his production hasn't been consistent on a night-to-night basis this season.
Len totaled 14 points (6-13 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 1-1 FT), four rebounds, one assist and a block across 30 minutes in the Hawks' win over the 76ers on Saturday.
Len had a solid outing on Saturday, scoring 14 and doing a little bit across the stat sheet. His minutes and usage have been very inconsistent this year, making him a deep league play only.
Len registered 20 points (8-13 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 2-4 FT), eight rebounds, four assists and two blocks across 23 minutes in Wednesday's 132-111 victory over the Grizzlies.
Len was relegated to a bench role after starting the past five contests, but his production was right on par with what he was doing with the starters. He has proven that when called upon, he can produce double-doubles down low, but don't expect more than a 50 percent shooting percentage and peripheral statistics to support his play.
Len managed 15 points (7-14 FG, 1-7 3Pt), four rebounds and a block over 29 minutes in the Hawks' loss to the Nets on Saturday.
Len got the start at center on Saturday, and he turned his 29 minutes into an average stat line. His recent bump in minutes has given way to more productive games than usual, but Len is still not fantasy relevant outside of deep leagues.
Len accumulated 11 points (4-8 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 1-2 FT), seven rebounds, two assists and a steal over 29 minutes in the Hawks' loss to the Spurs on Wednesday.
Len was given a bump in minutes once again with Dewayne Dedmon (knee) still out and John Collins (illness) on a minutes restriction. Len has been a cheap daily punt play when afforded extra playing time, but his value will fade quickly once Dedmon and Collins return to full health.
Len (knee) will be available for Monday's game against the Heat.
As expected, all of the Hawks who were initially listed as probable have been cleared to play, and Len could see a slight bump in minutes with John Collins now officially ruled out.
Len (knee) is listed as probable for Monday's game against Miami.
Len picked up a bruised knee in Friday's loss to Chicago, but he still started Sunday's rematch and played 27 minutes in the Hawks' 123-118 victory. With John Collins (illness) likely out Monday, Len could be in line to make another start alongside Dewayne Dedmon (shin), who's also considered probable.
Len collected 28 points (9-18 FG, 5-8 3Pt, 5-8 FT), nine rebounds, two assists, and two blocks in 27 minutes during Sunday's 123-118 win over the Bulls.
Len had been listed as probable after he suffered a knee injury during Friday's loss to the Bulls. However, it clearly didn't bother him much, as he amassed a season high scoring total. Len has now posted 52 points across the last two contests, and this is the fifth time through 60 appearances that he has scored at least 20 points this season. It's unlikely that John Collins (illness) will remain sidelined for much longer, but Len has certainly made the most of the opportunities provided by the sophomore's recent absence.
Len (knee) will play in Sunday's game against the Bulls.
Len suffered a knee injury in Friday's four-overtime game against the Bulls, however the injury doesn't seem to be an issue going forward. Len could see a larger role than usual, as the Hawks are dealing with a number of frontcourt injuries.
Len (knee) is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Bulls, Kevin Chouinard of the Hawks' official site reports.
Len appears to have suffered a left knee contusion during the quadruple-overtime loss to the Bulls on Friday. If Len's unable to go, Dewayne Dedmon would be in line for heavy minutes as the Hawks are relatively limited in their frontcourt with John Collins (illness) likely out and Omari Spellman (ankle) definitely out Sunday.
Len finished with a team-high 16 points (4-7 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 6-8 FT) to go with two rebounds, one assist and one block in 19 minutes Sunday in the Hawks' 124-108 loss to the Magic.
Len's stellar shooting provided one of the few silver linings for the Hawks in the second half of the back-to-back set. It's unlikely the performance will result in him receiving an uptick in playing time going forward, as his minutes were actually inflated Sunday with the Hawks trailing by 24 points heading into the final period. Atlanta reportedly has no plans to buy starting center Dewayne Dedmon out of his expiring contract, putting a cap on the fantasy upsides of Len and fellow reserve big man Omari Spellman.
Len totaled 19 points (7-12 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 5-6 FT), nine rebound,s three assists, one steal, and one block in 21 minutes during Monday's 123-118 victory over the Clippers.
Len was impactful off the bench Monday, falling just one rebound short of another double-double. Over the past two weeks he is the 71st ranked player in standard formats in under 20 minutes per game. He is not going to exceed more than about 22 minutes on any given night but is worth a look if you need points, boards, and a high field-goal percentage.
Len collected 14 points (4-10 FG, 6-7 FT), 10 rebounds, two steals, and one assist in 23 minutes during Wednesday's 121-101 win over the Bulls.
Len continues to share minutes with starting center Dewayne Dedmon, who produced his second straight solid showing. Meanwhile, Len bounced back from a two-point effort (on one-of-seven from the field) across 14 minutes during Monday's loss to the Magic. Len provides pretty decent numbers on a per-minute basis, but his minutes (and the results that follow) are inconsistent. In the event that Dedmon is traded before the deadline or suffers an injury, Len would likely become a relevant option in most leagues. With that being said, if neither of those things happen, Len will likely remain tough to trust outside of deep leagues.
