Top Alex Len News

  • Kings' Alex Len: Deployed as deep reserve in return

    Len (ankle) logged two minutes in Tuesday's 130-113 loss to the Trail Blazers, recording no statistics during his time on the floor.

    All of Len's playing time came in the fourth quarter, when the outcome of the game was already decided. Though he's fully healthy again after missing six weeks with a high-ankle sprain, Len looks to be behind Domantas Sabonis, JaVale McGee and Trey Lyles on the depth chart at center.

  • Kings' Alex Len: Good to go

    Len (ankle) is available for Tuesday's matchup against Portland.

    Len is available for the first time since Nov. 13. JaVale McGee was operating as the primary backup to Domantas Sabonis in Len's absence. In six appearances, Len has averaged 2.5 points and 2.7 rebounds in 7.0 minutes, so his availability shouldn't impact Sacramento's rotation.

  • Kings' Alex Len: Upgraded to questionable

    Len (ankle) is listed as questionable for Tuesday's game against Portland.

    Len has been out since Nov. 13 due to a high-ankle sprain, but rising to a questionable designation indicates that he's nearing a return. JaVale McGee has filled in admirably since Len's injury, improving Sacramento's defensive rating by 4.3 points per 100 possessions when he's on the court, although he's averaged just 4.7 points and 1.5 rebounds in 7.5 minutes across his last six appearances. Len's box score production won't turn heads either, but his familiarity with Sacramento's offensive system and ability to offer backup rim protection will be a relevant return for Sacramento's frontcourt.

  • Kings' Alex Len: Returns to practice

    Len (ankle) was a full participant in Thursday's practice, Frankie Cartoscelli of KHTK Sactown Sports 1140 reports.

    Len hasn't played since Nov. 13 due to a right ankle sprain. While the veteran forward isn't expected to see game action for at least another week, his return to practice is a good sign of his availability in the near future.

  • Kings' Alex Len: Out 6-to-8 weeks

    The Kings announced Friday that Len is expected to miss 6-to-8 weeks due to a right high-ankle sprain, Jason Anderson of The Sacramento Bee reports.

    Before missing the Kings' loss to the Lakers on Wednesday, Len had appeared in five straight games, but he logged no more than 13 minutes in any of those contests. His upcoming absence will reduce the Kings' depth at center behind Domantas Sabonis, though Trey Lyles (calf) should be ready to make his season debut soon and could end up claiming Len's vacated spot on the second unit.

  • Kings' Alex Len: Still sidelined Friday

    Len (ankle) has been ruled out for Friday's game against the Spurs.

    Len suffered a moderate high-ankle sprain Monday against the Cavaliers and will be unavailable for a second consecutive game. It wouldn't be surprising to see him sidelined beyond Friday, but his next chance to return will be Sunday in Dallas.

  • Kings' Alex Len: Won't play Wednesday

    Len underwent an MRI on Tuesday that revealed he suffered a moderate high ankle sprain in Monday's game versus the Cavaliers, and he will be ruled out for Wednesday's matchup with the Lakers, James Ham of ESPN 1320 Sacramento reports.

    It wouldn't be surprising for Len to miss additional time due to his ankle injury, but his earliest opportunity to suit up will be Friday's contest against the Spurs. JaVale McGee will likely serve as Sacramento's backup center behind Domantas Sabonis in Len's absence.

  • Kings' Alex Len: Not practicing Tuesday

    Len (ankle) did not practice Tuesday, Sean Cunningham of Fox 40 Sacramento reports.

    Len was forced to exit early in Monday's win over Cleveland after suffering an ankle sprain. His inability to practice Tuesday bodes poorly for his availability Wednesday against the Lakers.

  • Kings' Alex Len: Exits with ankle injury

    Len left Monday's game against the Cavaliers due to a right ankle injury and won't return, James Ham of ESPN 1320 Sacramento reports.

    Len appeared to suffer the injury on a collision with an opposing player, and he was unable to place any weight on his right foot while exiting the court. The big man was taken to the locker room for further evaluation, and the team has since announced that he's been shut down for the rest of the night. Expect JaVale McGee to pick up additional minutes in the second half with Len out of commission.

  • Kings' Alex Len: Solid contributions in OT win

    Len closed Wednesday's 121-118 overtime win over Portland with 10 points (4-4 FG, 2-5 FT), six rebounds, one assist, two blocks and one steal over 13 minutes.

    Len hasn't been a consistent part of the Kings' rotation early in the season, but he played double-digit minutes for the first time this year during Wednesday's overtime win. While Len showed some promise against the Trail Blazers, it seems unlikely that he'll be able to maintain his production unless Sacramento deals with absences at some point.

  • Kings' Alex Len: Re-signs with Kings

    Len re-signed with the Kings on a one-year, $3.2 million deal Saturday, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

    Len will return to his backup role for Sacramento behind Domantas Sabonis. He made just 26 appearances (six starts) in 2022-23, averaging 1.7 points and 2.3 rebounds across 6.2 minutes per contest.

  • Kings' Alex Len: Four fouls in eight minutes

    Len registered two points (2-2 FT), three rebounds and one block in eight minutes during Thursday's 114-97 loss to the Warriors in Game 3 of the Western Conference Quarterfinals.

    Len impressively racked up four fouls in just eight minutes, playing some backup center minutes with very little success. The fact his foul tally was his most productive category tells you everything you need to know, both for this game and moving forward.

  • Kings' Alex Len: Retreats to bench

    Len isn't starting Sunday against the Nuggets.

    Len drew the start Friday against the Warriors and totaled five points, six rebounds, two assists and a block in 16 minutes. However, he'll head to the bench with Domantas Sabonis back in action Sunday.

  • Kings' Alex Len: Startings sans Sabonis

    Len is in the starting five for Friday's game versus the Warriors, Jason Anderson of The Sacramento Bee reports.

    Len will replace Domantas Sabonis (ankle) in the starting lineup Friday. Len tallied two points and four rebounds in 14 minutes during his only other start this season back in December.

  • Kings' Alex Len: Serves as backup center

    Len played 16 minutes in Wednesday's 120-80 victory over the Trail Blazers, finishing with five points (2-4 FG, 1-2 FT), eight rebounds, two steals and one block.

    Though he's been buried on the depth chart all season and has typically been the fourth-string center behind Domantas Sabonis, Chimezie Metu and Richaun Holmes, Len surprising got the first call off the bench when Sabonis received his first breather late in the first quarter. Len made the most of his court time and was a plus-29 during his minutes, good for the third-best mark on the team. While he won't get enough playing time to make for a usable streaming option when Sabonis is available, Len may have at least temporarily captured a rotation role.

  • Kings' Alex Len: Available vs. Oklahoma City

    Len (illness) is available for Friday's game against the Thunder.

    Len was unavailable Wednesday against the Lakers due to a non-COVID illness but will be able to suit up two days later. However, he isn't guaranteed to see the court since he hasn't been part of Sacramento's rotation recently.

  • Kings' Alex Len: Handed questionable designation

    Len (illness) is questionable for Friday's game against Oklahoma City.

    Len was a late scratch Wednesday as a non-COVID illness kept him, Matthew Dellavedova and Domantas Sabonis out of the contest. The three were all handed questionable tags and will likely be game-time decisions. However, if Len plays and Sabonis sits, he could crack the rotation.

  • Kings' Alex Len: Late scratch Wednesday

    Len has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Lakers due to a non-COVID illness.

    Len was a late scratch Wednesday afternoon due to an illness. The veteran big man hasn't appeared in a game since Jan. 1, so his absence shouldn't have a major impact on Sacramento's game plan.

  • Kings' Alex Len: Returns to bench Wednesday

    Len isn't in the starting lineup for Wednesday's game versus the Nuggets.

    Domantas Sabonis will replace Len in the starting five Wednesday after missing Tuesday's contest with a thumb injury. The 29-year-old big man may be entirely out of the rotation, as he is averaging only 4.3 minutes across nine games this season.
