Ryan Anderson played 33 minutes on Wednesday, making 2-of-9 shots with one 3-pointer to finish with five points, five rebounds, two assists and one steal.
Houston extended their win streak to 11 games, but they did lose Luc Mbah a Moute to a shoulder injury tonight. He'll have an MRI on Thursday and Mike D'Antoni was hopeful he'll only miss a week or two, but in the meantime Anderson and P.J. Tucker should absorb more playing time. Anderson had averaged only 17.5 minutes over the previous two games, so this at least offers a temporary reprieve. Dec 14 - 1:23 AM

Ryan Anderson played just 17 minutes with two points, one rebound, one assist and two turnovers in 17 minutes against the Blazers on Saturday.

He couldn't get it going and the Rockets just went away with him with some smaller lineups. On the positive side of things, he's really enjoyed Chris Paul coming to down with an insane 100.0 eFG% on his 37 attempts off CP3 passes this season before tonight. Anderson really isn't doing anything else besides threes, but he's making a ton of them and is at 53.8 percent from the field over his last 10.
Dec 10 - 4:40 AM

Ryan Anderson hit 9-of-11 shots and 5-of-6 3-pointers for 23 points, six rebounds, two assists and a steal in 35 minutes of Thursday's win over the Jazz.

He was iffy coming in with a sore back, but had one of his best games of the season, hitting the 20-point mark for just the fifth time this season. He just missed his season high in scoring by one point, but he won't be this hot on most nights.
Dec 8 - 1:28 AM

Ryan Anderson (back) is starting on Thursday vs. the Jazz.

The Rockets haven't played yet this week, so Anderson has had plenty of time to get his body right. If you need 3-pointers, Anderson should be in your lineup.
Dec 7 - 9:55 PM

Ryan Anderson (back) is probable to face the Jazz on Thursday.

He did some work at practice on Wednesday and said he feels a lot better. Anderson has battled back injuries before, including at least two previous issues in this young season. If he's back, that should take minutes from Luc Mbah a Moute and P.J. Tucker. Anderson is trending down in standard leagues.
Dec 6 - 4:03 PM

Ryan Anderson (back) practiced on Tuesday but remains questionable to play Thursday vs. Utah.

"It's feeling a lot better," said Anderson, "It's a little tight, but we went in the training room and loosened it up... The other night, it was pretty locked up. It felt pretty terrible, but if it was a playoff situation, I might have tried to force it. It was better for me to not be out there last game." Anderson getting back on the court to practice on Tuesday is an encouraging sign regarding his status for Thursday's game, and owners can expect to get another update following Thursday morning's shootaround.
Dec 6 - 11:44 AM

Ryan Anderson said he thinks that his back will be "fine."

"I just locked up," Anderson said after leaving Sunday's game early. "It tightened up really bad to the point that standing there was really hurting me. We did stuff to loosen it up. I think it will be fine, just one of those back spasms, I think." The Rockets are off until Thursday, so Andreson has a few days to get his body right. With two games on the schedule this week, he should be benched in weekly formats.
Dec 4 - 1:01 PM

Ryan Anderson (back tightness) finished Sunday's game with three points, one rebound and one turnover in 12 minutes.

Anderson didn't play after halftime, with P.J. Tucker taking his spot in the starting lineup. He exited in the first half and did some stretching with team trainers, but he did return, so maybe his back tightened up during halftime. Houston doesn't play again until Thursday in Utah, so we'll consider Anderson questionable for that game.
Dec 3 - 11:38 PM

Ryan Anderson returned to the starting lineup on Monday vs. the Nets and scored 13 points with two rebounds, one assist and three triples in 26 minutes.

He's hit a total of 16 triples over his last four appearances, but that's really all he's good for in fantasy. Coach Mike D'Antoni said before the game that he might "experiment at different times" with the starting lineup, so there could be some nights when Anderson comes off the bench behind P.J. Tucker or even Luc Mbah a Moute.
Nov 28 - 12:34 AM

Ryan Anderson will return to the starting lineup for Monday's game against the Nets, sending P.J. Tucker back to the second unit.

Anderson is coming off a 17-point, four-triple game, and he should keep rolling tonight with a very favorable matchup against Brooklyn. Tucker's minutes will take a bit of a hit with the move back to the bench, but he should still see enough playing time to make a small impact in deep leagues.
Nov 27 - 6:25 PM

Ryan Anderson scored 17 points with seven rebounds and four 3-pointers against the Knicks on Saturday.

He did come off the bench today, but that was because of him not practicing. Anderson is likely going to start trending down from his current mid-round value because the Rockets are back to being full strength, so he's a sell-high player.
Nov 25 - 11:14 PM

Ryan Anderson (illness) will play vs. the Knicks on Saturday, as expected.

Anderson's return should bump P.J. Tucker back to the bench, after Tucker logged 35 minutes in a blowout vs. the Nuggets on Wednesday. Fire him up if you need 3-pointers and boards.
Nov 25 - 6:20 PM

Ryan Anderson (illness) is practicing on Friday and is expected to play Saturday vs. the Knicks.

Anderson missed his first game of the season on Wednesday, when the Rockets beat the Nuggets by 30. P.J. Tucker replaced Anderson in the starting lineup and finished with seven points and 11 rebounds in 35 minutes on Wednesday. Tucker will get bumped back to the bench with Anderson returning to action.
Nov 24 - 12:21 PM

Ryan Anderson (illness) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Nuggets.

P.J. Tucker has a decent chance of moving into the starting five tonight, and he might be someone to consider throwing out there as a punt play in daily leagues with a favorable matchup against Denver. Luc Mbah a Moute should also see an uptick in minutes, and he too could be used as a punt or low-end streamer in deep leagues.
Nov 22 - 6:47 PM

Ryan Anderson (illness) has been downgraded to doubtful for Wednesday's game against the Nuggets.

With Anderson unavailable tonight, Luc Mbah a Moute could be in line for a start and there will be more minutes available for P.J. Tucker in the second unit. Anderson was initially expected to play, so he should be over this illness in time for Saturday's game against the Knicks.
