Alex Len broke his right pinky finger when it got caught in an opponent's jersey during his summer league debut Saturday night at Cox Pavilion. He will miss the rest of summer league play and have the finger examined in Phoenix on Monday. Len could not participate in summer league last year after having surgeries on each of his ankles. Because he was not cleared for full basketball activity until training camp last year, this summer was considered vital for the 21-year-old center's development. Len, 21, had added 10 pounds of strength since the end of his rookie season, in which he averaged 8.6 minutes in 42 appearances. Arizona Republic
