Alex Len Underwent Right Ankle Surgery

Fortunately, it sounds like the Suns big man will be ready for the regular season. Details from the Phoenix Suns (via Valley of the Suns): “‘As a precautionary measure, our medical staff determined that it would be prudent to perform surgery on Alex Len’s right ankle at this time,’ said Suns President of Basketball Operations Lon Babby in a press release. ‘That surgery was successfully completed this morning. As part of a routine evaluation, our medical team identified the very beginnings of a stress fracture in Alex’s right ankle even though Alex was entirely asymptomatic. We expect him to be available to begin the season.’”

    The Suns medical staff are one of the few that can keep this guy healthy. This surgery was on his ‘good’ ankle! Good that it was ‘preventive’. Better to miss a little time now than months after a traumatic injury further down the road. I hope it works out well for Len. He’ll have to retire just like Yao Ming, but if he’s handled correctly maybe it is later rather than sooner
