    Kings' James Anderson: Scores two points in Sunday's start

    Anderson produced two points (1-2 FG), two rebounds, and two blocks across 18 minutes in Sunday's 128-119 loss to the Celtics. Though Anderson entered the starting five in place of the injured Rudy Gay (heel), second-unit standout Omri Casspi (29 minutes) still ended up dominating the playing time at small forward. Anderson should be able to hold down a rotation spot so long as both Gay and Ben McLemore (wrist) remain affected by injuries, but once the duo returns to full health, his minutes could dry up completely.

    Kings' James Anderson: Starting Sunday

    Anderson is in the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Celtics, Jason Jones of the Sacramento Bee reports. Anderson will run with the starters, as Rudy Gay will take the night off while he recovers from a heel injury. He's averaging just under 11 minutes per game this season, but should see an increase in that number with Gay on the sideline. Look for Anderson to share the additional minutes with Omri Casspi.

    Kings' James Anderson: Plays 18 minutes Tuesday

    Anderson recorded two points (1-4 FG, 0-1 3Pt), three assists, two rebounds, and one block in 18 minutes during the Kings' 112-97 loss to the Trail Blazers on Tuesday. Anderson has appeared in four of the last five contests. However, given that he is averaging merely 10 minutes per night this season, there's no real reason to bank on him in fantasy.

    Kings' James Anderson: Doesn't play in Wednesday's loss

    Anderson (hamstring) didn't play in Wednesday's 109-97 loss to the Pelicans. The official game box score lists Anderson as not playing due to a coach's decision, so we'll assume he's healthy now after he entered the contest listed as probable to play with the hamstring issue. With the Kings at full strength in the backcourt at the moment, it may be difficult for Anderson to find regular time in the rotation.

    Kings' James Anderson: Probable for Wednesday

    Anderson (hamstring) is probable for Wednesday's game against the Pelicans, James Ham of CSN Bay Area reports. Anderson is nursing a left hamstring strain, but after three days off for rest, he's expected to be active and available to play Wednesday. Anderson is averaging just 2.3 points, 1.1 rebounds and 0.4 assists over 10 minutes per game, so even when healthy, he'll remain off the fantasy radar unless he establishes a bigger role in the Kings' regular rotation.

    Kings' James Anderson: Out Saturday

    Anderson (hamstring) won't play Saturday versus the Warriors, James Ham of CSN Bay Area reports. Because the Kings have three days off before their next game Wednesday versus the Pelicans, Anderson will take a seat Saturday, though his absence should affect the wing rotation too incredibly much.

    Kings' James Anderson: No appearances in last three games

    Anderson (coach's decision) hasn't appeared in any of the Kings' last three games. With only five appearances in the Kings' last 13 contests, Anderson seems to have fallen out of coach George Karl's rotation, and that doesn't figure to change anytime soon. Karl appears to be comfortable enough with the duo of Ben McLemore and Marco Belinelli at shooting guard, along with some spot minutes from Darren Collison.

    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 will shift to the bench Sunday, James Ham of CSN reports. 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.
