Alan Anderson will start for the Nets against the Raptors on Wednesday, replacing Sergey Karasev (left oblique).
It is unclear how much time Karasev will end up missing, but owners in standard leagues should use a wait-and-see approach with Anderson. While he can contribute in points and 3-pointers, he doesn't do much else and can be wildly inconsistent. If you took a flier on Karasev, feel free to move on. Dec 17 - 6:42 PM

Alan Anderson started again for Joe Johnson (illness) and had 12 points, three rebounds and two 3-pointers on 5-of-10 shooting in 24 minutes.

Joe Cool should be back sooner than later, so Anderson's run as a starter should be a short one.ds

Alan Anderson will start in place of Joe Johnson (illness) against the Bulls on Wednesday.

With Joe Johnson already declared out, Anderson will draw his second consecutive start on Wednesday. Anderson only scored six points in 32 minutes on Monday and will split time with Bojan Bogdanovic and Jarrett Jacks, so he's not worth a short-term add outside of the deepest fantasy leagues.

Alan Anderson will start in place of Joe Johnson (illness) on Monday against the Cavs.

The Nets used the Anderson and Bojan Bogdanovic wing combo on occasion during training camp. Anderson probably won't take on all of Joe's minutes, so he's more of a deep-league play. Plus, he might have to spend some extra energy guarding LeBron. Expect Jarrett Jack to get more run off the bench, as well.
Dec 8 - 5:48 PM

Alan Anderson played 25 minutes off the bench Wednesday, but hit just 1-of-1 shots for four points, two rebounds, two assists, a steal and a block.

He blew up for 18 points on Monday, but he's going to have a tough time scoring off the Nets' bench. If you picked him up after Monday's game, think about dumping him for a hot free agent.
Nov 5 - 11:40 PM

Alan Anderson scored 10 points in the fourth quarter against the Thunder on Monday, finishing with 18 points, one rebound and four 3-pointers.

Garbage time was obviously a factor here, so this 16-minute gem is misleading. Bojan Bogdanovic hasn't been great in the starting lineup, but he'd need to be even worse to lose his starting gig.
Nov 3 - 11:17 PM

Alan Anderson played 25 minutes off the bench against the Celtics on Wednesday with four points, two boards, one assist and one block.

Unless coach Lionel Hollins sours on Bojan Bogdanovic, Anderson is going to have a tough time getting consistent minutes. He can remain on the wire in most leagues.
Oct 29 - 10:55 PM

Alan Anderson (abdominal) will not play Tuesday.

He returned to practice on Monday, but it looks like the Nets are going to ease him back into action. That means that Bojan Bogdanovic will likely get all the minutes he can handle, and it'll be interesting to see what he can do.
Oct 6 - 5:51 PM

Alan Anderson (abdominal) was back at practice on Monday.

He missed three practices due to his nagging abdominal strain, which bothered him last season. Anderson is a candidate to start and will compete with rookie Bojan Bogdanovic.
Oct 6 - 1:10 PM

Alan Anderson (sore abs) has missed three straight practices, but Nets coach Lionel Hollins isn't discouraged.

"I’m not concerned at all," Hollins said. "We have 16 other guys that are out here playing. Do I want him to be back? Yes ... I go over and ask him every day how he’s doing. He says he’s getting better. But I have to go with what I have." Anderson and Andrei Kirilenko (back spasms) are both in the mix to start at SF this season, but neither veteran has been able to claim the job due to injuries.
Oct 5 - 11:02 PM

Alan Anderson (abdominal) missed his third consecutive practice on Sunday.

Anderson is in the running to start, but each missed day gives way to more opportunity for rookie Bojan Bogdanovic. Anderson doesn't offer much upside, and he can safely be ignored in standard leagues.
Oct 5 - 12:56 PM

Alan Anderson (abdominal) missed practice on Saturday.

He's been out of practice since Thursday due to his recurring abdominal issue. Anderson has a chance to start, so he needs to get back on the court ASAP.
Oct 4 - 1:11 PM

Alan Anderson (abdominal) missed practice on Thursday.

It's a sore right abdominal muscle which is likely the same issue he had back in Apr. 2014. Anderson is in the mix to start and any practice time he misses could help Bojan Bogdanovic earn minutes.
Oct 2 - 8:47 PM

Alan Anderson was working with the first unit in 5-on-5 drills on Monday.

He is in a position battle with rookie Bojan Bogdanovic, but coach Lionel Hollins may opt to go with Anderson for continuity purposes. Anderson is a capable catch-and-shoot guy and will help space the floor. Still, Bogdanovic is a little more alluring than Anderson for the mystery factor at the end of deeper fantasy drafts.
Sep 29 - 2:51 PM

Alan Anderson signs with the Nets for two years, $2.6 million.

Anderson has carved himself a nice role as a shooter for the Nets but it's hard to project any real fantasy value at this time.
