Alan Anderson (ankle) will not play on Monday vs. the Jazz.
The Clippers are being very careful with Anderson and also held him out of practice over the weekend. He won't have much fantasy value this season and is competing with Wes Johnson and Luc Mbah a Moute for minutes. Mon, Oct 17, 2016 07:55:00 PM

Alan Anderson (ankle, precautionary) is not practicing on Saturday.

Anderson was limited to just 13 unproductive games last season due to two surgeries on his left ankle, and it's a red flag that the Clippers still feel the need to exercise caution with their new swingman. Despite the fact that AA could wind up as the starting small forward—let's be real, it's not a high bar to clear—there is no fantasy intrigue to be found here.

Alan Anderson will start at small forward on Monday.

The Clippers have been battling the small forward spot for a long time and Anderson could start there this year. That said, he's still not even close to being on the radar in most leagues.

Alan Anderson (ankle, rest) did not participate during Thursday's practice as a precautionary measure.

Anderson struggled to stay on the court last season after being forced to undergo two surgeries on his left ankle, and it is a bit concerning that this is still an issue at all considering that his last procedure was on October 13 of 2015. He's likely locked into a three-way timeshare with Wes Johnson and Luc Mbah a Moute, so there's no reason to burn a draft pick on Anderson in any setting.

Doc Rivers said that the battle for the starting small forward position in Los Angeles is "wide open."

Both Luc Mbah a Moute and Anderson got some reps with the first unit during Tuesday's practice, and Wes Johnson is also another option for Rivers. Last season, Rivers routinely changed the starting small forward based on matchups, and that could again be his strategy this season. This situation has timeshare written all over it, and is one that should be avoided in standard settings.

Clippers sign G/F Alan Anderson.

He's 33 years old and has really dealt with a lot of injuries lately. Anderson played just 14 games last season due mostly to ankle surgery back in May 2015. He is not likely to be in the rotation.

Alan Anderson has reportedly agreed to a deal with the Clippers.

Anderson spent a majority of the 2015-16 season recovering from ankle surgeries, but this could be a nice get for the Clippers if he can stay healthy, as they have a major hole at the small forward position. Anderson could realistically compete for the starting small forward spot in Los Angeles, and he's a guy that's capable of putting up sneaky late-round value in deep leagues with his ability to offer some 3-point shooting and a trickle of steals.

Alan Anderson is "very unlikely" to re-sign with the Wizards according to J. Michael of CSN Washington.

The Wizards were interested in bringing Anderson back earlier in the summer, but they didn't extend an offer after watching him workout in Vegas. Anderson was recovering from two ankle surgeries last season which limited him to just 13 games, and the 33-year-old veteran shot just 35.6 percent from the field.

The Wizards are still interested in re-signing Alan Anderson, according to J. Michael of CSN Washington.

Michael reports that the Wizards have yet to meet with Anderson, but would still like to keep him in the fold in Washington. While Anderson could help provide Washington with a veteran option off the bench, he wouldn't carry any fantasy value into 2016-17.

The Wizards will reportedly meet with Alan Anderson in Las Vegas this weekend.

Anderson spent all but 13 games on the sidelines last season, so he'll likely be earning something close to the veteran's minimum as an unrestricted free agent this offseason. He would provide Washington with a solid veteran on the wing who can bring it on the defensive end, although his fantasy value would be nearly non-existent.

The Wizards would like to re-sign Alan Anderson according to CSN Washington.

The Wizards will need to add some insurance behind Bradley Beal, and they already lost Jared Dudley in free agency and Garrett Temple could be on the way out as well. Anderson should be available at a discount after only playing in 13 games last season, posting averages of 5.0 points, 2.1 boards, 1.1 assists and 0.9 3-pointers. The 76ers, Cavs, Lakers and Clippers have also been linked to the 33-year-old swingman.

Unrestricted free agent Alan Anderson is receiving interest from the 76ers, Cavs, Lakers and Clippers.

He's likely looking at a minimum deal, so his contract won't hurt salary cap numbers. Anderson dealt with a litany of injuries last season, limiting him to just 13 games played with the Wizards. He'll likely just be emergency depth.

Alan Anderson would like to re-sign with the Wizards this summer.

His left ankle basically ruined his 2015-16 campaign, but Anderson is eager to redeem himself. "I wasn't able to show a lot of what I was capable of doing," Anderson said. "I'm definitely a totally a different player than what Iv'e shown. I definitely would love to be back." John Wall also voiced his desire for the Wizards to keep Anderson, but to be clear he likely won't have much fantasy value if he stays in Washington.

Alan Anderson wants to return to the Washington Wizards.

Anderson will turn 34 in October, so the Wizards will likely wait to see how healthy he is before deciding whether or not to re-sign the veteran. While Anderson has John Wall's support in coming back to Washington, Anderson is no longer a fantasy option in any format.
Thu, Apr 14, 2016 10:32:00 AM

Alan Anderson scored four points on 1-of-3 shooting Sunday, to go with three rebounds and no other statistics through 13 minutes of action.

Anderson figures to see limited minutes off the bench for the final two games of the year in Washington, but he's not going to earn enough minutes to matter in any setting.
