Washington Wizards center Alex Len scored 11 points (5/6 FG, 1/1 3P) while adding in five rebounds, one assist, one block, and one steal during Wednesday's 137-115 loss against the Raptors.
Len continues to flirt with fantasy relevance posting several games of 22 or more fantasy points. The only problem the veteran guard faces is his lack of minutes. If the Wizards reward Len with more minutes he is a viable fantasy option on waiver wires in deeper leagues.
Wizards center Alex Len scored 18 points (7/12 FG, 4/4 FT, 0/3 3P) while adding in three rebounds, and two assists during Friday's 122-95 loss to the Heat.
Len continues to play heavy minutes at the center position with former starter Thomas Bryant out for the season with an injury. With Robin Lopez the starting center continuing to struggle we could see Len continue to fill the void and potentially slot into the starting lineup. The veteran center is someone to monitor for fantasy formats.
Wizards center Alex Len scored 8 points (3-4 FG, 2-2 FT) while adding in four rebounds, four assists, and two steals in Wednesday's 124-106 loss to the Pelicans.
With Thomas Bryant being ruled out for the season with an ACL tear, the Wizards have turned to Len to try and stop the gap. The veteran center continues to show good scoring touch while adding in decent volume in the rebounds and assists categories. Len is someone to monitor in deeper fantasy leagues.
Alex Len has agreed to a one-year deal with the Wizards.
After a short stint in Toronto, Len has found a new home with the Wizards and will look to provide some additional depth to a thin frontcourt. His play this year has been uninspiring as he has averaged 10.8 minutes of playing time, 2.3 points, 1.6 rebounds, 0.4 assists, 0.1 steals, and 0.9 blocks per game while shooting 50.0 percent from the floor and from beyond the arc coming off the bench. Given the situation in Washington, Len may have a chance to step into a consistent role in the rotation immediately. You never know what a new team and environment can do for a player, as this move could result in greater productivity for the seven-year pro. Len is worth keeping on your radar as a speculative add in season-long deep-league play and could become a viable flier option in DFS should he begin playing towards his potential.
The Toronto Raptors have waived center Alex Len on Tuesday, according to Shams Charania.
Len has only averaged 2.3 points and 1.6 rebounds this season and hasn't played in each of the last three games due to personal reasons. His 11.0 minutes per game will likely be picked up by a combination of Aron Baynes and Chris Boucher.
