Anderson underwent surgery Thursday to address his sore right shoulder and is expected to make a full recovery by the start of training camp.
Anderson was sidelined for 37 of the team's final 39 games with the lingering injury, but the procedure should resolved the issue heading into 2019-20. The small forward will likely spend the summer rehabbing before being back to 100 percent by the time preseason play gets underway.
Anderson will undergo thoracic outlet decompression surgery on his right shoulder next week, Chris Herrington of The Memphis Commercial Appeal reports.
Anderson missed 37 of the last 39 games of the season dealing with what the team labeled as right shoulder soreness. The Grizzlies haven't outlined a specific timeline for Anderson's return, though it's expected he'll be ready to go for the start of training camp. Assuming surgery resolves his shoulder problems, Anderson should step back into a starting role on the wing for Memphis in 2019-20.
Head coach J.B. Bickerstaff said Friday that the team is working under the assumption that Anderson (shoulder) will not play again this season, Omari Sankofa II of The Athletic reports.
Anderson has not played since January due to a lingering shoulder injury, and while it would have been a huge surprise if he ever played again, Bickerstaff's remarks confirm this. It was a tough season for Anderson, who played in just 43 games in his first year with the Grizzlies, but at 25 years old, the swingman will likely remain a key part of the team's young nucleus.
Anderson (shoulder) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Warriors.
Anderson had been scheduled to have his right shoulder re-evaluated last week, but the Grizzlies haven't provided any indication that he's made enough progress to realistically return to game action this season.

Anderson recently visited with a specialist for more clarity on his sore right shoulder, an issue he has contended with on and off for years. The latest setback has prevented Anderson from playing in 19 of the Grizzlies' last 21 games, and the lack of clear progress he's demonstrated during that period suggests more absences will likely be on tap. Given that the Grizzlies are out of the mix for playoff contention, it's likely they'll continue to act conservatively with Anderson even his tests yield positive news.
Anderson (shoulder) will see another specialist next week, Omari Sankofa II of The Athletic reports.

Anderson is scheduled to visit a shoulder specialist sometime this week, Omari Sankofa II of The Athletic reports.
Anderson has been sidelined for the last five games due to a lingering shoulder injury, and the fact that he's headed to a specialist suggests the 25-year-old isn't recovering as initially expected. While Anderson remains without a timetable for his return, he can safely be ruled out for games Tuesday and Wednesday versus the Spurs and Bulls, respectively, the Grizzlies' final two contests before the All-Star break.
Anderson (shoulder) won't play Saturday against New Orleans.

It's unfortunate news for Anderson who also missed eight straight games recently due to an ankle injury.

Anderson returned to the lineup following an eight-game absence with a sprained ankle and immediately earned a substantial load of playing time.
