Anderson's (ankle) MRI result showed a Grade 2 ankle sprain and he'll likely be out for at least 2-to-4 weeks. Anderson suffered the injury during Saturday's matchup against Miami, and it'll cost him at least a few weeks while he's on the mend. Although this is a key loss for the Grizzlies, he'd been struggling from a scoring standpoint of late, averaging just 5.8 points, 3.3 rebounds and 2.8 assists over his previous four contests. With Anderson on the shelf, Justin Holiday figures to entire the starting lineup.
Anderson (ankle) will undergo an MRI on Sunday after his X-rays came back negative, Omari Sankofa II of The Athletic reports. Anderson suffered the left ankle sprain during Saturday's game against the Heat and underwent X-rays after the game, but thankfully appears to have avoided a fracture. Additional clarity on the injury should be available once the 25-year-old completes the additional testing.
Anderson suffered a left ankle sprain and won't return to Saturday's game against the Heat. Anderson had recorded two points, a rebound, an assists and a steal in eight minutes of play before being lost due to a sprained left ankle. Look for an update on his recovery timeline to come either after the game or tomorrow, but for now, Anderson can be considered day-to-day.
Anderson provided 11 points (5-10 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 1-1 FT), 11 rebounds, 10 assists, and one block in 38 minutes during Friday's 109-100 loss to the Nets. Anderson finished with a career high assist total while reaching double figures in scoring for the fifth straight game (and the eight time in the last nine tilts). The 25-year-old forward is managing career-high averages in points, rebounds, assists, and minutes per game while connecting on a career-best field-goal percentage.
Anderson scored a season-high 20 points (9-13 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 0-6 FT) while adding five assists, three rebounds, three steals and a block in 39 minutes during Monday's 113-101 loss to the Rockets. Despite a brutal performance at the charity stripe, Anderson still led the Grizzlies in scoring on the night. The 25-year-old wing doesn't have a prominent enough role in the offense to be a consistent fantasy producer in most formats, posting single-digit point totals in his prior six games, but his defensive contributions can be useful in very deep leagues.
