Alex Len has ankle surgery
Maryland sophomore and likely lottery pick Alex Len will be shelved for all pre-draft workouts due to surgery on his left ankle.
Sports International Group's Michael Lelchitski said in a release Friday the 7-foot-1 Len had surgery to "stabilize" the partial stress fracture in his left ankle. Recovery time is projected to be 4-6 months.
That means Len would not only miss team workouts in late May and in early June before the draft on June 27 but also would not be available for testing at the NBA pre-draft combine in Chicago May 16-17.
