    Harry Giles had himself solid performance off the Kings' bench on Tuesday, recording a double-double with 12 points on 6-of-17 shooting, adding 11 rebounds, three assists and two blocks, leading all reserves with 25 minutes on the floor.

    Giles took advantage of the absence of Richaun Holmes and Marvin Bagley III in this game. Alex Len got the starting nod at center, but wasn't quite as effective, managing just six points, four rebounds, one assist and two triples in 13 minutes. Giles was far and away the better DFS play tonight, but given these two you big men, it's tough to peg who'll be performing well on any given night.

    Cory Joseph and Alex Len will each receive spot start on Tuesday against the Pelicans.

    The Kings will rest both De'Aaron Fox and Richaun Holmes in this one, as they have been eliminated from playoff contention. This will be a good opportunity for Len to showcase his game. He hasn't had much of a chance to do so since being acquired from the Hawks before the trade deadline in February. Joseph is a league veteran and can be penciled in for a decent line in the start.

    With Richaun Holmes out on Sunday, Alex Len will be in the starting lineup to face the Rockets.

    Len struggled from the floor (1-of-6 FG) when he received 16 minutes against the Nets on Friday, but he did produce eleven rebounds over that span, and he figures to get some nice run with Holmes out of the lineup. Unless the Kings decide to match the Rockets with an extra small lineup of course.

    Alex Len is starting the second half instead of Richaun Holmes in Friday's game vs. the Nets.

    The Kings struggled in the first half, and it's unclear if this was a lineup change due to performance or because of Holmes' hip issues. Either way, it's not a good sign for Holmes' future outlook, and Len deserves a bump in your overall outlook for these last few restart games.

    Alex Len (re-conditioning) is available to play in Tuesday's game with the Mavs.

    Game flow will determine whether or not Len actually sees the court but it appears he's back to full strength. Len was late to the bubble after being diagnosed with COVID-19 and has taken some time to get back up to speed. His presence will affect the minutes of Harry GIles and Richaun Holmes in games where Len does suit up, but that's not something that's guaranteed to happen in every matchup.

    Alex Len (conditioning) has a chance to play for the Kings on Tuesday after being listed as questionable.

    Len is yet to see any action for the Kings after struggling to overcome his battle with COVID-19. The Kings desperately need Len on the floor to provide a defensive presence. He is likely to be eased back into things even if he is active and adding him in any fantasy format is certainly a risky play.

    Alex Len will miss another game on Sunday as he continues to work his way back from illness.

    Len will continue to warm the bench for the Kings after being ruled out for Sunday's tilt with the Magic. After a positive COVID-19 test more than a month ago, Len is apparently still battling the after-effects of the illness. Richaun Holmes should continue to get all the minutes he can handle moving forward. While Len is certainly not a fantasy juggernaut, the Kings do need his defense on the floor. If he can carve out a 20-minute role, he could have some backend value.

    Alex Len (COVID/conditioning) has been ruled out for Friday’s game.

    Luke Walton was “hopeful” Len would be able to take the court Friday after multiple negative COVID-19 test results, but the big man will not be ready to go. Richaun Holmes will play without a minutes restriction and is expected to eat up some of the extra minutes in Len’s absence. Harrison Barnes, who has been recovering from coronavirus, has been fully cleared and will also play without a minutes restriction.

    Luke Walton said that he is "hopeful" that Alex Len can play during Friday's game against the Spurs.

    Len was forced to quarantine after a positive coronavirus test but has now tested negative multiple times. He still needs to get into 5-on-5 practices before getting cleared for game action. Len averaged 6.6 points, 7.1 rebounds and 1.4 blocks while playing 16.7 minutes per game this season with the Kings. With Richaun Holmes and Harrison Barnes back in action, Len is unlikely to see a big uptick in playing time.

    Alex Len came over to the Kings in 2019-20 via a trade from the Hawks in a multi-player deal, which was not good for his value as the big man managed to squeak by with top-200 value on the season.

    The Kings found themselves loading up with low-end big men in the wake of some injuries to some of their key players. Len was able to play just nine out his 49 games this season with the Kings. His stats slid since moving out west, recording averages of 6.6 PPG, 7.1 RPG and 1.4 BPG. Len also dealt with a myriad of minor injuries which kept him from performing at an optimal level for most of the season.

    Kings center Alex Len has tested negative for COVID-19 on multiple occasions and will (finally) rejoin his teammates on Friday evening.

    This will be the first time Len will step foot inside the NBA 'bubble' in Orlando, as he tested positive for coronavirus late in June. With RIchaun Holmes violating the protocol at the Disney World campus and Harrison Barnes recently contracting the virus, it's anyone's guess who might get minutes down low for the Kings later this month in the seeding games. We could very well be in for a large dose of Len. Monitor how Kings' practices play out over the next week or so.

    According to James Ham of NBC Sports Bay Area, Alex Len will be traveling to Orlando for the NBA restart on Thursday night after quarantining due to a positive Coronavirus test.

    The Kings have been without Alex Len, Buddy Hield and Jabari Parker as the trio tested positive for Covid-19 on June 24. It is positive news that Len will be joining his team in Orlando and he should be able to participate in practice after a two-day quarantine. The Kings have also had to practice without Richaun Holmes (violation of Covid-19 protocol) and De'Aaron Fox (ankle sprain). If the big-man rotation is healthy at the start of the resumption season, Len will serve as a back-up big and is not worth drafting in resumption seasons. However, if Holmes has to miss time, Len could see a significant boost in opportunity and would be worth monitoring for fantasy purposes.

    Alex Len, Buddy Hield and Jabari Parker have yet to join the rest of their Kings teammates in Orlando clear (test negative for) the coronavirus protocol for the NBA's 'bubble' at Disney World.

    This update was courtesy of head coach Luke Walton, via Kings Insider James Ham, after it was reported that the trio tested positive on June 24. Len apparently never felt symptoms. Parker, for his part, broke his quarantine when he was seen playing tennis in his native Chicago (where he is in isolation) on video. There's a chance Len and Hield will be able to report to Orlando before Parker because of this, but all three must clear protocol before they can make the trip to the bubble.

    Shams Charania reported that Alex Len tested positive for coronavirus and is in isolation.

    Len seems to be feeling well, saying that he looks forward to "being cleared and rejoining my teammates for our playoff push." He is now the third player on the Kings to test positive for coronavirus, joining Buddy Hield and Jabari Parker. All three players are in self-isolation and plan to return to the team when they are cleared.

    Coach Luke Walton said he anticipates having Richaun Holmes (shoulder) back as early as Saturday and said he may play in both games over the weekend.

    This is huge news for Holmes owners as he's expected to return just in time for some very critical games for fantasy playoffs. Squeeze as much as possible out of Alex Len and Harry Giles until that happens.
