Anderson (ankle) is expected to be sidelined for at least another month, J. Michael of CSN Washington reports. Anderson underwent a left ankle procedure late in training camp to address a nagging issue, and he still remains confined to a walking boot while he attempts to work his way back to full health. Consequently, it's unwise to rely on him to take the court for the Wizards in the near future. Once healthy, Anderson will likely fill a bench role behind Otto Porter at small forward.
Anderson (ankle) remains sidelined in advance of Wednesday's season opener, Jorge Castillo of the Washington Post reports. Anderson underwent surgery nearly two weeks ago to remove bone chips from his ankle, and he's yet to return to the practice court. He's without a firm timeline, but it seems extremely unlikely that he's available off the bench Wednesday, and he could miss a significant chunk of games to begin the year.
Anderson (ankle) will miss the Wizards' final two preseason games Wednesday and Friday, J. Michael of CSN Washington reports. Anderson is still recovering from a procedure last week that removed a bone fragment from his ailing ankle. The ankle issue prevented Anderson from taking part in training camp and could delay his return to the court until well into the regular season, though the Wizards haven't offered a definitive timetable just yet.
Wizards forward Alan Anderson underwent surgery Tuesday to remove a small bony fragment from his left ankle, Jorge Castillo of the Washington Post reports. The team hasn't released a timetable for his return. Anderson previously underwent an operation on the left ankle during the offseason to remove bone spurs, but he continued to experience discomfort throughout training camp, and still has yet to participate in a practice. While there's no telling how soon he might be cleared to take the court, it's probably safe to assume he won't be available for the regular season opener Oct. 28 in Orlando. The uncertain recovery timetable along with his likely bench role once he's cleared to return to game action effectively takes Anderson off the Fantasy radar in most formats.
Anderson (ankle) continues to remain sidelined for Wizards practices, J. Michael of CSN Washington reports. Anderson's left ankle injury is quickly morphing into a larger issue than the Wizards expected, as he has yet to see any involvement during training camp. At this point, it's tough to predict if he'll heal up in time to take the court during the preseason, which could prevent him from opening the regular season as a member of coach Randy Wittman's rotation.
