Alex Len, the Suns highly touted rookie, has sat out his first game with an injury. He didn't play in the loss to the Clippers. Our sources are telling us that his ankle has started to cause him pain. "Maybe we pushed him too hard."
The official team position is that it's minor but we are hearing that no one knows for sure right now and it's day to day. Alex has had 2 surgeries and started camp in the healing process.
"Sometimes when recovering from injury you start to favor different parts of the body. That sets up alignment problems. Usually they are minor. We sure hope this one is" said one insider. Len is expected to try playing in upcoming game against the Kings but don't expect much mobility out of him until a few weeks into the regular season.
