Anderson will return to the bench for Monday's game against the Hawks, Jeff McDonald of the San Antonio Express-News reports. Anderson drew the spot start on Saturday against the Warriors with Kawhi Leonard (concussion) sitting out, posting a respectable 13 points, eight rebounds, six assists and one block across 32 minutes. However, with Leonard back in the starting five, Anderson will return to the bench and should see a significant drop in playing time. Anderson's role has been highly volatile over the last month or so, but for the most part, he's been left out of the regular rotation.
Anderson (leg) tallied 13 points (5-7 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT), eight rebounds, six assists and one block over 32 minutes in Saturday's 107-85 win over the Warriors. Anderson had missed Thursday's game against the Thunder with leg soreness but drew the start for Kawhi Leonard (concussion) on Saturday, providing his best scoring total since Jan. 23 while dishing out a season high number of assists. Anderson would presumably be in for another run with the first unit on Monday night versus the Hawks if Leonard isn't cleared in time for the contest.
Anderson (leg) will start at small forward for Saturday's game against the Warriors, Tom Orsborn of the San Antonio Express-News reports. Though he missed Thursday's tilt with soreness in his leg, Anderson will draw the start for the short-handed Spurs against the Warriors on Saturday. His workload has been choppy all season, but he's averaging 8.5 points, 7.1 rebounds, 3.1 assists, 1.8 steals, and 1.1 blocks per 36 minutes this season, and he'll likely see heavy time Saturday.
Anderson (leg) will not play travel for Thursday's game against the Thunder, Jabari Young of the San Antonio Express-News reports. Anderson is reportedly suffering from some soreness in his right leg, causing him to exit Wednesday's game late in the fourth quarter. It doesn't sound as though it's a long-term issue, but it will at least hold him out one additional contest, making his earliest return date Saturday against the Warriors. He doesn't generally see a ton of minutes, but the Spurs will be without a bit of depth as they prepare for Russell Westbrook and the Thunder on Thursday.
Anderson went to the locker room in the fourth quarter of Wednesday's game with an apparent left leg injury, Paul Garcia of Project Spurs reports. The exact nature of the issue remains a bit of a mystery, but it wouldn't be surprising if he doesn't return given that it occurred late in the fourth quarter. Assuming he's done for the night, he will finish the night with nine points (4-8 FG, 1-2 3PT), four rebounds, four assists, two steals and a block. The team should update his status again ahead of Thursday's tilt against the Thunder.
