76ers' Justin Anderson: Out with illness Sunday, doubtful Monday

Anderson is dealing with an illness and has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Celtics and is considered doubtful for Monday's game against the Magic, Jessica Camerato of CSN Philadelphia reports.

Anderson has come down with the flu and looks set to miss both halves of the team's back-to-back set while he rests up. It's unfortunate timing for Anderson, who turned in his third 19-point performance since joining the 76ers in the team's last game Friday against the Mavericks, his former squad. Look for coach Brett Brown to give most of Anderson's minutes to Robert Covington and Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot over the next two contests.
