Phoenix Suns big man Alex Len missed a Feb. 19 matchup against the Houston Rockets due to a right ankle sprain. However, he is ready to return.

Len Active vs. Clippers

Monday, Feb. 22

The Suns announced Len was in Monday's starting lineup against Los Angeles. 


Len Has Proven to be Durable During 15-16 Season

Len had come off the bench the last six games and had a six-point, seven-rebound performance on Feb. 10 against the Golden State Warriors. 

This is only the fourth game Len has missed this season. He missed three games in mid-January with a left hand sprain

The Suns sit at 14-43 while holding the Western Conference's second-worst record. Len's absence meant the Suns lost much-needed rebounding, as the former fifth overall pick from the University of Maryland is Phoenix's second-leading rebounder, at 6.2 boards at 19.5 minutes per game.
