Len will come off the bench in Game 4 against the Sixers on Monday, Fred Katz of The Athletic reports.
The 27-year-old started the past 41 games for the Wizards, including the first three games of the series, but he'll move to the bench Monday after posting two points (1-3 FG), two rebounds and one assist over 11 minutes during Game 3. Daniel Gafford will start at center with Len and Robin Lopez set to work off the bench.
Len totaled six points (2-6 FG, 2-2 FT), 10 rebounds, two assists, two steals and one block in a 120-116 loss to the Hawks on Wednesday.
Len wasn't much of a factor offensively but picked up double-digit rebounds for the second time in his last three games. The center has also played solid defense of late, recording three-plus defensive stats in each of his last three games. Over that stretch, Len has averaged 5.3 points, 7.7 rebounds, 2.0 blocks and 1.0 steals per game.
Len tallied eight points (3-7 FG, 2-2 FT), 10 rebounds, three blocked shots and an assist across 20 minutes in Saturday's 133-132 OT win over the Pacers.
Coach Scott Brooks routinely makes things difficult for fantasy managers when it comes to the frontcourt, as he often shifts the rotation on a whim. He opted to give Len the start Saturday, and he responded with a solid rebound total. Len isn't known for a high shot volume, so his ability to notch double-doubles is somewhat capped by his lack of scoring opportunities. His overall fantasy value is also restricted due to the current timeshare at the position, as Robin Lopez and Daniel Gafford are also heavily involved.
Len accumulated 18 points (7-13 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 4-7 FT), nine rebounds, two blocks and one assist in 24 minutes during Wednesday's 116-107 win over the Lakers.
The 27-year-old has now posted back-to-back quality games, averaging 17.5 points, 9.5 rebounds and 1.5 blocks in that span. Len was only averaging 5.9 points, 3.8 rebounds and 0.4 blocks in his previous nine games before Monday's and Tuesday's impressive performances, so fantasy managers should tread lightly before investing in the veteran big man. Still, the eighth-year center has started in each of his last 26 contests, so feel free to stream him if you need blocks along with low-end points, rebounds and field-goal percentage.
Len posted 17 points (8-9 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 0-1 FT) and 10 boards in Monday's overtime loss to the Spurs.
The Wizards have been using a by-committee approach at center, but Len was able to see more minutes than usual with Robin Lopez (ankle) sidelined Monday. He took full advantage, posting his first double-double since back on March 17. When Lopez is healthy, Len's workload typically sits in the 12-to-17-minute range.
Len (ankle) will play Monday against Oklahoma City.
Len won't have to miss any extra time after he had to leave Saturday's game due to an ankle injury. The center's availability will limit the value of Daniel Gafford and Robin Lopez.
Len (ankle) is a game-time decision for Monday's game against the Thunder, Fred Katz of The Athletic reports.
Len remains questionable due to left ankle soreness, and the team will presumably see how is feeling after he goes through pregame warmups. Robin Lopez and Daniel Gafford could see heightened minutes if Len is out.
Len (ankle) is questionable for Monday's game against Oklahoma City.
Len exited Saturday's game against Detroit due to an ankle injury. If Len is unable to return to the court for Monday's contest, Robin Lopez and Daniel Gafford should see increased roles for Washington.
Len won't return to Saturday's game against the Pistons due to right ankle soreness.
The 27-year-old headed to the locker room during the second quarter Saturday and won't retake the court due to the injury. Len had eight points (4-4 FG) in seven minutes before exiting the contest. Robin Lopez and Daniel Gafford should split work at center for the Wizards.
Len went to the locker room during the second quarter of Saturday's contest against the Pistons, Zach Rosen of the Wizards' official site reports.
It's not clear if Len will be able to return. If he misses any time with injury, Daniel Gafford should see more action.
Len posted 15 points (5-9 FG, 5-5 FT), five rebounds, two steals, one assist and one block in 20 minutes during Friday's 110-107 victory over the Warriors.
Len is technically the listed starting center, but Robin Lopez has been outscoring him off the bench in recent games, scoring 16-plus in five of his last six contests. However, Len decided to join the scoring party Friday, posting 15-plus points for the first time since March 21. The Wizards took full advantage of their size mismatch against the Warriors, but given Len's unstable minutes, it feels unlikely fantasy managers can rely on any consistency.
Len closed with just two points (1-4 FG) and four rebounds in 16 minutes during Wednesday's 131-116 victory over the Magic.
Len remained in the starting lineup but you wouldn't have known it to look at the final boxscore. His exact role for the Wizards moving forward is likely to fluctuate from one game to the next. Daniel Gafford (ankle) will return at some point and he is the player most likely to be handed a meaningful opportunity given his age and potential future role for the team. Len should be viewed as a potential streamer for the time being but as we saw in this game, he is far from a trustworthy option.
Len recorded 13 points (6-10 FG, 1-3 FT), eight rebounds and four blocks in 29 minutes during Monday's loss to the Raptors.
The 27-year-old bounced back from Saturday's scoreless dud to score 13 points on 10 shot attempts. The four blocks were the most Len's had in any game since Feb. 27. The eighth-year center is as inconsistent as they come, but he should be a solid streamer for blocks along with low-end points and rebounds as long as he's starting for Washington.
Len scored 14 points (7-12 FG, 0-2 FT) and grabbed five rebounds across 21 minutes Thursday in a loss to Detroit.
Len started his 11th straight game at center for Washington and registered his sixth double-figure scoring game over that span. He's not putting up massive numbers, but Len is at least showing the ability to contribute decent points, rebounds and blocked shots on occasion. He remains off most fantasy radars but could be a factor if his minutes were to ever settle in the upper-20s.
Len had 20 points (8-12 FG, 5-6 FT), nine rebounds and two blocks in Sunday's loss to the Nets.
A few days after posting his first double-double of the year, Len went for a season-high 20 points and fell one rebound shy of another double-double. The Maryland product has now started five games in a row and could have some fantasy value for managers in deeper formats.
Len scored 13 points (5-7 FG, 3-3 FT) to go along with 12 rebounds and three assists across 24 minutes in Wednesday's loss to the Kings.
Len remained in the starting lineup and topped 20 minutes for the second time in his last three games (all starts) while delivering his first double-double of the campaign. His playing time has been so wildly inconsistent this year that it's hard to know what to expect moving forward, but fantasy managers should at least take notice after this performance.
Len will start at center for the Wizards in Saturday's game against the Bucks.
With Moritz Wagner struggling as of late, Len will return to the starting lineup for the first time since Feb. 12. He's averaging 5.3 points and 3.0 rebounds in 12.9 minutes per game this season. Wagner will shift to the bench, with Robin Lopez also expected to rotate in at center for the Wizards.
Len recorded four points (2-4 FG), seven rebounds, two blocks and one assist over 19 minutes in Tuesday's 125-111 loss to the Grizzlies.
Len has had an inconsistent role for the Wizards recently, as he's failed to play double-digit minutes in four of the last six contests. He saw ample playing time off the bench Tuesday, though, and responded by tying for the team lead with seven rebounds against Memphis. Across the past six matchups, Len has averaged 3.0 points and 2.0 rebounds over 9.8 minutes per game.
Len (coach's decision) didn't see the floor Sunday in the Wizards' 104-91 win over the Celtics.
After starting in each of the Wizards' previous four games, Len was removed from the rotation entirely Sunday, as Moritz Wagner moved from the third-string role to the top unit while Robin Lopez remained the backup center. Head coach Scott Brooks has shown a willingness to regularly shake things up at center since Thomas Bryant (knee) suffered a season-ending injury Jan. 9, but fantasy managers who rostered Len can feel comfortable moving on from him for the time being.
Len will come off the bench Sunday against Boston, Fred Katz of The Athletic reports.
The 27-year-old started the past four games at center but will return to the bench Sunday with Moritz Wagner receiving his first start of the season. Len and Robin Lopez have been splitting time at center, and it remains to be seen who is the odd man out or whether coach Scott Brooks opts for a three-man rotation at the position.
