Former Maryland center Alex Len will miss the remainder of the NBA's Summer League after suffering an injury, the Phoenix Suns announced on Sunday.

Len played one game for Phoenix this summer after missing the event entirely in 2013 as he recovered from ankle surgery. He scored six points, grabbed six rebounds, and blocked two shots in his team's loss to Golden State on Saturday.

During his rookie season in the Suns in 2013-14, Len averaged 2.0 points and 2.4 rebounds in 8.6 minutes per game. He appeared in 42 contests.

Len was drafted with the No. 5 overall pick in the 2013 NBA Draft after playing two seasons at Maryland under head coach Mark Turgeon.
