Tim Bontemps of the New York Post suggests that Alan Anderson could draw the start over rookie Markel Brown for Game 2 against the Hawks.
The move makes some sense considering Brown played just six minutes in Sunday's loss, and it's clear that the Nets could use Anderson's 3-point shooting after they went 4-of-19 from downtown in Game 1. It is unlikely that Bojan Bogdanovic would lose many minutes if Brown shifted to the bench, but it's certainly possible that Brown could fall out of the rotation completely if this report is true. We will let you know if the Nets decide to make any changes before tonight's game. Apr 22 - 12:37 PM

Alan Anderson (ankle) returned from a seven-game absence to open the playoffs with five points in 16 minutes of action off the Nets' bench.

He shot 2-of-3 from the field with one 3-pointer, one rebound, one assist and one steal, and his perimeter shooting is a welcome addition for the Nets -- not counting Anderson, they were a combined 4-of-19 from downtown tonight. Anderson doesn't have a playing-time restriction but he's unlikely to average more than 20 minutes vs. the Hawks.
Apr 19 - 8:27 PM

Alan Anderson (ankle) will not have a minutes restriction for Sunday's Game 1 against the Hawks.

Head coach Lionel Hollins said that Anderson "looked fine" during Sunday's shootaround, so he should slot into his usual role getting around 20 minutes off the bench. Anderson's return to the rotation will likely hurt the value of Bojan Bogdanovic.
Apr 19 - 4:12 PM

Alan Anderson (ankle) said he'll be good to go for Game 1 against the Hawks on Sunday.

All signs are pointing towards Anderson being available, which dampens the value of Bajon Bogdanovic. He should see his minutes in the mid-20s if is indeed able to play on Sunday.
Apr 17 - 2:17 PM

Alan Anderson (ankle) was a full participant during Friday's practice.

Anderson didn't play in the Nets' final seven games of the season, but it sounds like there's a chance he's ready to go for Game 1 when the Nets open up their first round series against the Hawks on Sunday. His return to action would likely take away some minutes from Bojan Bogdanovic.
Apr 17 - 1:12 PM

Lionel Hollins said that he was hopeful that Alan Anderson (ankle) could return for the playoffs, but he also doesn't know where Anderson is at in his recovery.

Anderson spent the final seven games of the season on the sidelines, but the Nets don't have their first playoff game until Sunday, giving him an additional three days to get things right. Hollins likes Anderson's defense, so if he is able to go, he'd likely siphon away some minutes from Bojan Bogdanovic.
Apr 16 - 2:33 PM

Alan Anderson (ankle) will not play against the Magic on Wednesday.

It will be his seventh consecutive game out of the lineup. With Anderson out, suddenly hot Bojan Bogdanovic should get more chances to score in a must-win game.
Apr 15 - 5:48 PM

Alan Anderson (ankle) has been upgraded to questionable for Wednesday's game against the Magic.

If Anderson is able to return to action on Wednesday, a majority of his minutes will come at the expense of Bajon Bogdanovic. Anderson is only worth considering as a steals and 3-point specialist in deep leagues.
Apr 14 - 4:01 PM

Alan Anderson (ankle) will not play against the Bulls on Monday.

It'll be his sixth straight game out of the lineup. Bojan Bogdanovic started the second half on Sunday and he could be looking at more minutes tonight based on his improved play. Give him a look in all leagues.
Apr 13 - 4:59 PM

Alan Anderson (ankle) will not play against the Bucks on Sunday.

It will be his fifth consecutive game out of the lineup. Anderson did not even travel and coach Lionel Hollins hinted Anderson could be out for the rest of the regular season. Bojan Bogdanovic is worth a look in all leagues.
Apr 11 - 5:37 PM

Alan Anderson (ankle) doesn't have a timetable to return.

"I don't know if he's coming back at all," coach Lionel Hollins said. Bojan Bogdanovic is playing some encouraging ball right now and is worth a look in standard leagues. Anderson can be dropped everywhere.
Apr 10 - 6:02 PM

Alan Anderson (ankle) will remain sidelined for Friday's game vs. the Wizards.

This will be Anderson's fourth consecutive game on the sidelines, and with him unavailable, look for Thaddeus Young to get all the run he can handle with Bojan Bogdanovic getting some extended run. Bojan has been playing well lately, and he's worth a look as a low-end, plug-and-play option in daily leagues
Apr 10 - 10:59 AM

Alan Anderson (ankle) will not play against the Hawks on Wednesday night.

It'll be his third game out of the lineup and he could miss additional time going forward. The Nets have not been getting anything out of Joe Johnson or Markel Brown lately, so maybe Bojan Bogdanovic gets minutes in the low 30s. Bogey has scored 17.0 points per game in his last two, so he's worth a look in daily leagues or season-long leagues for owners who are feeling frisky. Anderson can be dropped everywhere.
Apr 8 - 2:48 PM

Alan Anderson (ankle) has been ruled out for Monday's game vs. Portland.

The fact that the Nets are ruling him out so early isn't a great sign, and we'll be considering him questionable for Wednesday's game vs. Atlanta. With Anderson sidelined, expect to see more Markel Brown, Bojan Bogdanovic, and Jarrett Jack. Anderson should be sent to the waiver wire in all leagues.

Alan Anderson (left ankle) will not play against the Hawks on Saturday.

He didn't travel with the team for the game and the Nets make it sound like he's going to miss more time. With Anderson out, we should see more Markel Brown and Joe Johnson on the wing. Of course, Thaddeus Young, Deron Williams and Brook Lopez will be a three-headed monster for the offense.
