Anderson, with Kawhi Leonard (quad) sidelined indefinitely, is likely to be a staple in the starting lineup for the foreseeable future, Jabari Young of the San Antonio Express-News reports.
Anderson started the first 23 games of the season while Leonard was on the shelf, averaging 8.9 points, 6.0 rebounds, 3.0 assists and a combined 2.0 blocks/steals. He also shot an efficient 51.3 percent from the field and knocked down 75.5 percent of his free-throw attempts. While his numbers certainly aren't flashy, he makes for an intriguing fantasy option in a variety of formats due to his all-around performances.
Anderson will start at small forward for Monday's game against the Hawks, Tom Orsborn of the San Antonio Express-News reports.
The Spurs are set to be without Kawhi Leonard (quad) on Monday, so Anderson will get the call once again to start in his place. Anderson is plenty familiar with the top unit, as he's already picked up 30 starts this season, averaging 8.7 points, 6.1 rebounds and 2.8 assists across 28.1 minutes during that span. He should see an uptick a temporary uptick in production and fantasy value, but will likely return to a bench role as soon as Wednesday's tilt with the Nets.
Anderson made his second straight start at small forward and tallied three points (1-3 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 1-2 FT), seven rebounds, five steals and two assists across 28 minutes in Monday's 107-100 win over the Kings.
As per usual, Anderson didn't light it up in the points column despite receiving huge minutes, but his contributions across the stat sheet nonetheless proved useful for those who rolled with him in DFS lineups and deeper season-long leagues. The five steals matched Anderson's previous career best and give him a total of 16 over the Spurs' last eight games. He's also shooting 58.3 percent from the field and averaging 6.4 rebound per game over that same span.
Anderson will start at small forward for Wednesday's game against the 76ers, Tom Moore of the Bucks County Courier Times reports.
The Spurs are set to be without the likes of Rudy Gay (heel), Kawhi Leonard (rest), Danny Green (groin), Tony Parker (rest) and Manu Ginobili (rest) on Wednesday, so Anderson will pick up the start and should see all the minutes he can handle on the wing. That'll make him a potential punt-play for Wednesday's DFS slate, though the majority of the aforementioned players should be back Friday, so it'll only be a temporary uptick in value for Anderson.
Anderson went for 16 points (4-4 FG, 8-8 FT), eight rebounds and one steal across 29 minutes in Thursday's 119-107 win over the Knicks.
Anderson drew the start with Kawhi Leonard (rest) sidelined and equaled his season high in scoring. A high-water mark in visits to the charity stripe helped prop up his line significantly Thursday, as he'd scored no more than six points in his previous six contests. While the unexpected offensive surge was certainly a welcome sight for fantasy owners, Anderson's offensive contributions remain largely inconsistent, although his typically solid work on the glass and in the area of assists has helped keep him fantasy-viable even when his point totals remain in the single digits.
