      Kings' James Anderson: Hasn't seen floor in three games

      Anderson hasn't come off of the bench in three games after starting seven straight earlier this season. Anderson appears to have taken a back seat to the likes of Ben McLemore and Marco Belinelli, which isn't very surprising considering Anderson has only scored more than three points once this season. After showing some early season promise in terms of playing time, Anderson's newly acquired reserve role could very well be permanent.

      Kings' James Anderson: Will shift to bench

Anderson has started each of the last seven games, but he'll shift back to the bench as George Karl goes with Ben McLemore against the Raptors. McLemore is coming off of his best game of the season, a 15-point outing against the Nets on Friday.

      Kings' James Anderson: Gets start, but plays only seven minutes

      Anderson remained in the starting lineup Monday against the Spurs, but failed to accrue any statistics while playing only seven minutes. Though Anderson got the start at shooting guard in place of the injured Darren Collison (hamstring), it appears most of Collison's playing time went to Marco Belinelli, who saw 32 minutes of action. Coach George Karl values Anderson for his defensive and three-point shooting abilities, but those skills likely aren't enough to translate into consistent court time for the veteran guard. He's seen more than 20 minutes in just one of the Kings' eight games this season.

      Kings' James Anderson: Scores 15 points in first start

      Anderson accumulated 15 points (5-15 FG, 4-10 3Pt, 1-1 FT), two assists, and two steals over 25 minutes in Wednesday's loss to the Suns. After seeing end-of-the-bench minutes in the Kings' previous four contests, Anderson entered the starting lineup Wednesday as coach George Karl opted for a small-ball approach with DeMarcus Cousins (Achilles) unavailable. Anderson impressed in camp with his defensive effort, but it was his prowess from three-point range that was most notable Wednesday. It's unclear if Karl plans on keeping this starting lineup arrangement in tact going forward, so Anderson won't be guaranteed to see around 25 minutes in the Kings' next game Friday against the Rockets.

      Kings' James Anderson: Gets the surprise start Wednesday in Pheonix

      Anderson gets a surprise start Wednesday in Pheonix, Jason Jones of the Sacramento Bee reports. With DeMarcus Cousins out, George Karl has shifted the starting lineup to include Anderson. This is a surprise as Anderson hasn't played more than five minutes in any contest thus far. Karl says he installed this lineup because of the match-ups it provides. Anderson will have an opportunity to earn himself more minutes in future games.

      Kings' James Anderson: Could be in rotation

      Anderson, who was able to claim a roster spot with the Kings in training camp, could open the season as a member of coach George Karl's rotation, James Ham of CSN Bay Area reports. Coach George Karl praised Anderson as the Kings' "best defender on the perimeter" during Saturday's practice, an endorsement that could enable the veteran to push Ben McLemore and Marco Belinelli for playing time at shooting guard. Anderson, who played in Lithuania last season, probably shouldn't be monitored until Karl actually doles out minutes to him, but at the very least, it appears he made a strong impression during training camp.

      James Anderson lights up Rockets again

      76ers guard James Anderson has made a point of terrorizing his former team this season, as he put up his second 30-plus point game against the Rockets Thursday. Anderson, who scored 36 against the Rockets back in November, scored 30 points in just 29 minutes this time around. He shot 11 for 18 from the field and 6 for 11 from three-point range, while adding three rebounds and two assists in a 120-98 loss. Anderson barely played for the Rockets a year ago, but has acquitted himself nicely in an extended role with the 76ers. He is averaging 10.1 points, 3.8 rebounds and 1.9 assists per game in 70 appearances.
