Anderson posted 14 points (5-7 FG, 4-5 3Pt), eight rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block in 22 minutes during Friday's 90-83 scrimmage loss to the 76ers. Anderson has never been hotter from deep than he was Friday, as he's never made four threes in a regular-season or playoff game in his career. He's only made 25.8 percent of his threes this season, so we shouldn't expect this type of shooting to continue into the seeding games.
Anderson accumulated three points (1-7 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 1-2 FT), seven rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block across 21 minutes during Monday's 127-88 loss to the Hawks. As the Grizzlies continue to be undermanned due to frontcourt injuries, Anderson continues to garner starts. He's started 11 consecutive games, but he's averaged only 7.4 points, 6.1 rebounds, 2.8 assists and 1.1 steals in 25.4 minutes. Considering he has a usage rate of just 14.3 percent on the season, it's unlikely there's anything that will make him fantasy relevant this season outside of seeing nearly 40 minutes.
Anderson registered six points (2-5 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 2-2 FT), six assists, five rebounds and one steal in 26 minutes during Wednesday's 121-107 win at Dallas. Anderson got the start in place of Jae Crowder, who was a healthy scratch due to his potential involvement ahead of the trade deadline, and he filled the stat sheet nicely. The six assists were his second-highest mark of the 2019-20 season, but his scoring figures were quite low once again. Anderson has been coming off the bench on a regular basis, and that shouldn't change moving forward. Thus, his upside will remain fairly low unless he can find a way to contribute more on a steady basis.
Anderson will start Wednesday's game against Dallas. Anderson will enter the starting lineup in place of Jae Crowder, who was a late scratch. Across five other starts this season, Anderson's managing 3.6 points, 6.8 rebounds and 2.4 assists in 24.3 minutes per game.
Anderson will come off the bench Wednesday against the Knicks. Anderson will return to a reserve role Wednesday with Jae Crowder back following a two-game absence tied to a knee injury. When coming off the bench this month (nine games), Anderson is averaging 3.9 points, 1.6 rebounds, 1.3 assists and 1.1 steals in 11.3 minutes.
