Alex Len underwent successful surgery on his right ankle on Friday.
The Phoenix Suns selected Len with the fifth overall pick in the 2013 NBA Draft.
“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 Lon Babby. “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.”
