Sacramento Kings center Alex Len had to exit Monday’s game against the Cavaliers due to a right ankle injury, and Sean Cunningham of Fox40 confirms that he will not return.
The injury occurred during a collision with an opponent, rendering Len unable to put any weight on his right foot as he left the court.

Len, having played just 8 minutes, managed to contribute 2 points and three assists before the injury forced him out of the game.
Following the incident, he was taken to the locker room for a more thorough evaluation, and the team subsequently announced that he would be sidelined for the remainder of the night.
In Len’s absence, JaVale McGee is expected to see increased playing time during the second half as the Kings adjust to the setback.
