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. Jul 12 - 9:42 AM

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.
Jul 3 - 9:21 AM

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.
Jun 30 - 6:26 PM

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.
Apr 16 - 10:10 AM

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.
Apr 14 - 10:32 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.
Apr 10 - 5:25 PM

Alan Anderson (groin) is on the active list for Friday's game vs. the Pistons.

He hasn't played since Mar. 19 and it's not a lock that he sees the floor. Leave him on the wire.
Apr 8 - 7:00 PM

Alan Anderson (groin) is a game-time call vs. the Pistons on Friday.

A report earlier indicated that he will be "available," but he's not worth using in fantasy formats no matter what.
Apr 8 - 6:08 PM

Alan Anderson (groin) will be available to play on Friday vs. the Pistons.

He is technically listed as questionable, and he hasn't played since Mar. 19. His minutes will be limited if he's cleared to play, so he's not worth using in fantasy.
Apr 8 - 12:21 PM

Alan Anderson (groin) will not suit up for Wednesday's game against the Nets, as expected.

He didn't go through shootaround, did not practice on Tuesday and he could very well be shut down for the final five games of the season. Leave him on the wire.
Apr 6 - 5:25 PM

Alan Anderson (groin) did not go through Wednesday morning's shootaround.

He also did not go through practice on Tuesday, so there's really no way he takes the court for tonight's game against the Nets. Leave him on the wire.
Apr 6 - 11:55 AM

Alan Anderson (groin) did not practice on Tuesday.

He was limited to doing some light shooting, but the fact that he's still not practicing isn't a great sign regarding his availability for Wednesday's game against the Nets. He's without a timetable to return and should not be owned anywhere.
Apr 5 - 2:21 PM

Alan Anderson (groin) will not play Sunday vs. the Clippers.

It'll be Anderson's eighth straight game on the sidelines, and it's unclear if he'll be able to play again this season. Leave him on the wire.
Apr 3 - 2:17 PM

Alan Anderson said he is dealing with a Grade-2 groin strain, but hopes to play again this season.

"I’m going to get back out there," Anderson said. "I just don’t know which game yet. But I want to get out there and play before this is over." His minutes will be limited if he's cleared to play, so he belongs on the wire in almost all leagues.
