Anderson was not extended the qualifying offer and will become an unrestricted free agent, Chris Vivlamore of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. Anderson averaged 3.7 points and 1.8 rebounds in 9.6 minutes across 48 games while shooting 40.8 percent from the field, 31.2 percent from three and 74.3 percent from the line last year. It's unclear how much attention he'll garner on the free agent market but could viably join a team as a rotational backcourt player.
Anderson (neck) will play Friday against the Magic. As expected, Anderson will take the court despite a strained neck. He should continue seeing a bump in workload considering the amount of injuries the Hawks are dealing with.
Anderson is listed as probable for Friday's game against Orlando due to a neck strain. Anderson's late appearance on the injury report is due to a neck strain which he presumably suffered during Wednesday's contest. However, it doesn't appear too severe at the moment but the injury may ultimately require that Anderson sit at least one contest to help heal his ailing neck.
Anderson will come off the bench Wednesday against the 76ers, Kevin Chouinard of the Hawks' official site reports. With Taurean Prince (foot) back in the lineup, Anderson will resume his usual role off the bench.
Anderson finished with 24 points (9-16 FG, 4-8 3Pt, 2-4 FT), 12 rebounds, three assists and two steals across 31 minutes in the Hawks' overtime victory over the Bucks on Sunday. Anderson drew his second start of the season on Sunday, filling in for Taruean Prince (foot). He played a season-high 31 minutes while piling up season highs in points and rebounds. Averaging just 7.9 minutes per game this season, he'll likely have his playing time reduced when Prince returns to action.
