Alex Len scored seven points on 3-of-5 shooting with eight rebounds and six blocks over 22 minutes in Friday’s loss to the Thunder.
Tyson Chandler (neck) could return on Sunday but it’s entirely possible that Len keeps his 22-25 mpg and the question, as usual, will be whether he can produce on a nightly basis. He has hung around the top 150-180 range (9/8 cat) over the last month and the last two weeks, with the latter segment being crushed by a 23.1 percent mark from the foul line. There’s some upside hidden in there but it doesn’t come without risk, and if you need a big man it’s probably worth the risk to give him a hard look.
