Anderson (leg) is still not practicing and is not expected to play in Wednesday's season opener against the Knicks, Chris Vivlamore of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
Anderson has been making his way back from leg surgery he underwent back in June and is still being evaluated on a regular basis. He still has't been given a clear recovery timetable, but it looks like it will extend into the first week of the regular season at the very least. It's unclear exactly what sort of role Anderson will play with the Hawks once healthy, but he's expected to play a reserve role given the number of young players Atlanta currently has on the wing.
Anderson (leg) has been ruled out for Wednesday's preseason game against San Antonio, Brian Lewis of the New York Post reports.
As expected, Anderson won't take the court while he's continuing to rehab from surgery in June on his left leg. He'll be re-evaluated in a week to determine the next step in his recovery process.
Anderson (leg) will be re-evaluated next week, Chris Vivlamore of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
Anderson continues to recover from surgery he underwent in late June to alleviate the recurring tibial stress in his leg. He may be able to participate in the late parts of training camp with hopes of being ready for the regular season. We should find out more once he's looked at again by team doctors.
Thursday's trade was a three-team deal between the Hawks, Thunder and 76ers. In addition to Anderson, Carmelo Anthony was dealt to Atlanta, though he's expected to be waived. Mike Muscala also went to the 76ers, while Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot was shipped to the Thunder. In Anderson's case specifically, he joins a much less talented roster, but will still have plenty of bodies to fight with for minutes on the wing. The Hawks bring back both Kent Bazemore and Taurean Prince, while they also drafted Kevin Huerter, so Anderson will likely push for a complementary bench role. Anderson hasn't averaged more than minutes in the teens throughout his three-year NBA career and that's unlikely to change despite the change of scenery.
Anderson has undergone surgery on his left leg to alleviate recurring tibial stress syndrome and will be re-evaluated in two weeks and again in another 6-to-8 weeks, Derek Bodner of The Athletic Philadelphia reports. An update on his status is expected to surface in approximately eight weeks.
Anderson logged some valuable minutes off the bench for the 76ers in 2017-18, averaging 6.2 points and 2.4 rebounds for the club while averaging 13.7 minutes per contest. Considering he underwent the procedure early in the offseason, Anderson will have a lot of time to rehab before training camp. However, a better grasp of his timetable should be revealed when the team provides another update in six weeks.
