On NBA Draft Night in June the fifth pick of the night rookie Alex Len told reporters that he was expected to recover from a stress fracture in his left ankle and return to basketball activities by August.

During a routine evaluation however Suns team doctors discovered that Len had the beginnings of a stress fracture in his right ankle that required surgery.

Len underwent the surgery mid-July after which doctors said they expected him to "be available to begin the season."

Len showed up to today's NBA rookie photoshoot in a walking cast indicating that resuming basketball activity is still a ways off for the former Maryland center.
