As reported by James Herbert of CBSSports.com, Len fractured a finger in his right hand on Saturday night against the Golden State Warriors when his pinky got stuck in the jersey of one of the Warriors' players. Len had six points and six rebounds in 25 minutes at the time of the injury.
It's a tough blow for Len, who missed all of last summer league too due to ankle surgeries. The time missed was valuable to Len, who looked to develop more this off season in order to see more significant time on the court next season. He's currently second on the depth chart behind Miles Plumlee.
Len was the fifth overall pick in the 2013 NBA draft out of Maryland. He saw limited action in 42 games this season, averaging just two points and 2.4 rebounds, in 8.6 minutes per game. In two seasons at Maryland, Len averaged 9.7 points, seven rebounds and 2.1 blocked shots per game.
