Alex Len Injury Update: Mark Turgeon Expects Len To Play Wednesday

The Maryland Terrapins don't have a lot of height on their roster, which makes Alex Len one of the more irreplaceable players on the whole squad. That makes the news from Mark Turgeon regarding his ankle injury pretty good.

Len left the game against Temple over the weekend with an ankle injury and did not return. I would not be surprised to see Len play, but I also wouldn't be shocked if Turgeon held him out of the game as a precautionary measure. But this is the Duke game, so he might pull all of his punches. They'll need him in this game more than any other pretty much.

Alex Len Injury: Maryland Big Man Hurts Ankle Against Temple, Will Not Return

The Maryland Terrapins suffered a dose of bad luck early in their road game against Temple on Saturday, as center Alex Len suffered an ankle injury in the first half. Len had to leave the game and went back to the locker room. He will not return to game action, according to Patrick Stevens of the Washington Times.

Len ended up limping off the floor after picking up his second foul midway through the first half. He may not have returned to the game regardless, but he did not come back in since.

Len got off to a fast start after being suspended for the first 10 games of the season for violating the NCAA's amateur policy, but has struggled recently in ACC play.
