Alex Len was dynamite off the bench on Saturday, picking up 12 points on 6-of-9 shooting to go with a career-high 19 rebounds, six assists, two steals and a block.
Len did some serious damage in 28 minutes and unsurprisingly outplayed Tyson Chandler, who picked up four points and six rebounds in 20 minutes. Of course, this was all helped out by Greg Monroe‘s DNP-CD. It’s criminal, but Len’s turn for a DNP in the Suns’ brutal center rotation is coming up. A trade or a Chandler shutdown would restore consistent fantasy viability to both Len and Monroe but it looks like owners will need to plan on one DNP every three games for all parties. Those two are worth owning as back-end plays in standard leagues but it’s not going to be a smooth ride.
