    Wizards' Alan Anderson: Still working back

    Anderson (ankle) remains without a timetable to return, CSN MId-Atlantic reports. "He's getting closer," coach Randy Wittman said. "I can't give you a couple weeks (timetable). He's not been on the floor in practice. He's doing a lot of individual stuff on the floor but hasn't reached that point." Anderson is yet to play this season after undergoing ankle surgery back in May and then a second, follow-up procedure to remove a bone fragment in October. The veteran has participated in individual drills since December, and while the intensity has increased, he's yet to return to contact work. "He's got to get on the floor," Wittman added. "He hasn't done a thing all year. We got to get him practice on the floor, up and down, bodies around him." At this point, Anderson will likely be evaluated on a week-to-week basis, and it's difficult to project when, exactly, he could return to game action.

    Wizards' Alan Anderson: Expected to debut around the All-Star break

    Anderson (ankle) is expected to make his Wizards debut at some point in mid-February around the All-Star break, Jorge Castillo of The Washington Post reports. Anderson, who signed a one-year, $4.4 million contract this summer, was expected to be fully healthy by the start of the season after undergoing offseason surgery on his left ankle, but after suffering a setback in training camp, he required another procedure in October to remove a bone fragment. It sounds like he's been making progress in the last few weeks, and could be cleared to resume practicing with the Wizards by the early part of February. Once fully healthy, Anderson will likely play only limited minutes off the team's bench.

    Wizards' Alan Anderson: Still a "few weeks" out

    Anderson said Wednesday that he'll be out another "few weeks" despite being cleared for non-contact basketball activities, Jorge Castillo of the Washington Post reports. Anderson has still been unable to take the court this season after undergoing surgery on his left ankle during the offseason. Otto Porter, Kelly Oubre, and Jared Dudley have performed admirably in his absence, so there's no guarantee for substantial playing time when he eventually returns to the court.

    Wizards' Alan Anderson: Completes workout Tuesday, but likely not close to return

    Anderson (ankle) was able to complete a workout Tuesday, but there remains no concrete timetable for his return, J. Michael of CSN Mid-Atlantic reports. Anderson is still unable to jump on his surgically-repaired left ankle, and it doesn't appear as though he'll be able to make his season debut by the end of January. Even if he notices improvement in the next few weeks and is able to get back on the court by February, he's unlikely to make much of impact in the Wizards' rotation.

    Wizards' Alan Anderson: Still 3-to-5 weeks away

    Anderson (ankle) is not expected to make his season debut for another 3-to-5 weeks, the Washington Post reports. The veteran underwent surgery over the summer to remove bone fragments from his ankle, and subsequent discomfort resulted in a second procedure in October. The 33-year-old is yet to play this season, but after meeting with the team's medical staff on Monday, he's been cleared to begin on-court activities. Considering he'll require a few weeks to work back into game shape, the Wizards don't expect Anderson to debut until late January or early February.

    Wizards' Alan Anderson: Not yet running or jumping

    Anderson (ankle) was able to put up some shots Monday, but hasn't been cleared to resume running or jumping, Jorge Castillo of The Washington Post reports. It had been suggested a couple weeks ago that Anderson was getting closer to a return, but his limited activity Monday suggests the small forward likely won't be healthy in time to make his season debut until at least January. The Wizards haven't unveiled an official timetable for Anderson since he underwent a procedure to remove a bone fragment in his left ankle in October, and that will likely remain the case until he starts practicing with the team again.

    Wizards' Alan Anderson: Traveling with team, could be back by mid-December

    Anderson (ankle) is traveled with the Wizards for their game in Cleveland on Tuesday and was scheduled to take part in on-court activity Wednesday, Jorge Castillo of The Washington Post reports. Anderson has been sidelined since Oct. 13 after undergoing surgery on his left ankle, but the fact he's traveling with the Wizards suggests he's made significant progress to this point. The swingman had previously been limited to off-court cardio activities, but it looks like he could step up his involvement in team workouts over the next few days. Washington has yet to unveil a return timetable for Anderson, but those familiar with the 33-year-old's injury have suggested that mid-December might be a reasonable estimate.

    Wizards' Alan Anderson: Likely to miss at least a month

    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.

    Wizards' Alan Anderson: Remains sidelined

    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.

    Wizards' Alan Anderson: Sitting out rest of preseason schedule

    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.
