Ryan Anderson (thumb) finished Wednesday's home loss 6-of-16 from the field and 5-of-10 from deep, scoring 17 points with six rebounds, one assist and no defensive stats in 31 minutes.
Anderson gashed his thumb recently but he was able to practice on Tuesday and his status was never in doubt tonight. The hot perimeter shooting proves that his thumb injury isn't an issue, but the same can't be said for his supporting stats -- he's just a late-round value this year due to middling averages of 5.0 boards, 1.0 assists, 0.5 steals and 0.2 blocks.

Anderson cut his right (shooting) thumb taking out the garbage over the weekend, but he was a full participant during shootaround and said that his thumb is giving him "no issues." Feel free to get him active.

Ryan Anderson (thumb) practiced on Tuesday and is not listed on the injury report for Wednesday's game vs. Miami.

Anderson cut his thumb on a piece of glass while taking out the garbage over the weekend and had to go to the emergency room. Fortunately, it appears that he avoided a serious injury and won't miss even one game.

Ryan Anderson (thumb) is questionable for Wednesday's game vs. the Heat.

He's going to get the weirdest injury award for this one. Anderson cut his thumb on a broken piece of glass while taking out the trash at his home on Sunday night. He "lopped off" the skin from his right thumb and went to the emergency room, so he will have to see how much it improves by Wednesday. The Rockets didn't practice Monday, but we should know more by Tuesday afternoon. If he's out, Sam Dekker should get a lot of burn as a small-ball four.
Feb 13 - 1:02 PM

Ryan Anderson hit 5-of-11 shots and two 3-pointers for 14 points and four rebounds in Thursday's 107-95 win over the Hornets on Thursday.

While that's not a great line, it was a heck of a lot better than his previous two games, when he hit just 2-of-14 shots and scored a total of six points. He had the ball in his hands a little more tonight with Eric Gordon (back) sidelined and is due for a big game soon. He'll have a good matchup with the Suns on Saturday night.
Feb 9 - 9:37 PM

Ryan Anderson hit just 2-of-7 shots and a 3-pointer for six points, four rebounds, two assists and a steal in Tuesday's easy 128-104 win over the Magic.

Anderson had 25 points, 11 rebounds and six 3-pointers a week ago, but it's been a struggle since then. He had 11 points on 4-of-12 shooting on Thursday, zero points on 0-of-7 shooting on Friday, and was then 2-of-7 for six points tonight. That's an average of just 5.7 points, 3.3 rebounds and 1.3 3-pointers on 6-of-26 (23%) shooting over his last three games. He should break out of the funk soon, so look for him to get it going again against the Hornets on Thursday.
Feb 7 - 10:24 PM

The Rockets have been able to practice on their home court recently and Ryan Anderson hopes that will enable him to improve his play at home.

Anderson's home/away splits this season are really remarkable. In the 27 games the Rockets have played on the road, Anderson is averaging 16.7 points per game while shooting 45.9 percent from the floor, 47.3 percent from downtown and 92.3 percent from the free-throw line. In the 24 games he's played at home, Anderson is averaging 10.7 points while shooting 37.4 percent from the floor, 30.3 percent from 3-point territory and 77.1 percent from the stripe. Asked for a reason for the discrepancy, Anderson said he had no idea. Expect the numbers to balance out over the second half of the season.
Feb 7 - 1:52 PM

Ryan Anderson missed all seven of his shot attempts on Friday vs. the Bulls, failing to score in 33 minutes.

He added four boards and that was it. Six of his shot attempts were from deep, so he just didn't have it tonight. The Bulls are a middle-of-the-pack team in terms of defending opposing power forwards, so this was a strange night for Ryno. He hit at least three 3-pointers in each of his previous six games, so expect him to bounce back on Tuesday vs. the Magic.
Feb 4 - 12:37 AM

Ryan Anderson scored 11 points with two rebounds, two assists and three 3-pointers in Thursday's 113-108 loss to the Hawks.

Anderson struggled from the field, hitting just 4-of-12 shots and 3-of-9 from beyond the arc. He cooled down after two consecutive strong performances, but that is expected from him, as he is a spotty shooter. In his last five games, he has averaged 18.6 points, six rebounds, 1.2 assists, and four 3-pointers per game, while shooting 46 percent from the field.
Feb 2 - 10:43 PM

Ryan Anderson hit 7-of-14 shots and 6-of-12 3-pointers for 25 points, a season-high 11 rebounds, three assists and a steal in just 27 minutes in Tuesday's 105-83 blowout over the Kings.

This game wasn't as close as the final score indicates and while Anderson has been a bit hit-or-miss at times this season, he's always capable of a night like this. We're going to go ahead and call this Anderson's best game of the season, as it was his first double-double to go along with all the 3-pointers and efficiency. He had 27 points on Sunday and has hit 16-of-30 shots in his last two games with 11 3-pointers. He's hot right now, so make sure you're taking advantage of it while it lasts.
Jan 31 - 11:08 PM

Ryan Anderson was a lone bright spot for the Rockets during Sunday's lopsided defeat, as he scored a team-high 27 points (9-of-16 FGs, 4-of-5 FTs) with five 3-pointers, seven boards, one steal and zero turnovers.

Anderson struggled on Friday, but even with that included he's averaging 18.3 points and 3.5 threes in his previous four games. The bad news is that a lack of supporting stats continues to drag down his value, and he's only been a top-100 guy on the season (8-cat and 9-cat).
Jan 29 - 8:42 PM

Ryan Anderson returned from a one-game absence on Monday vs. the Bucks, scoring 16 points on 6-of-11 shooting.

He finally looked healthy and logged 29 minutes compared to 16 for promising second-year forward Sam Dekker. Anderson added three triples with one rebound, one assist and one steal, so it's time to get him back into your lineups with three more games on the schedule this week. "I feel amazing," Anderson said before the game. "I feel really good. You know when you make a turn, when you feel like such crap and make that turn, I'm so happy to feel like myself again."
Jan 23 - 11:02 PM

Ryan Anderson (illness) and Clint Capela are expected to start on Monday vs. the Bucks.

Anderson only lasted nine minutes on Friday vs. the Warriors and was held out of Saturday's game vs. Memphis, so he's a risky play tonight until we confirm that he's 100 percent -- A doctor told him a few days ago that his bug could limit him for 1-2 weeks. With Ryno expected back, Sam Dekker will take the biggest hit, but he should still be involved Monday.
Jan 23 - 12:28 PM

Ryan Anderson (illness) is expected to play in Monday's game against Milwaukee.

Ryno has missed three of his last four games due to a stomach virus. He told ESPN that he was not able to eat for three days, but has eaten over the last two days and "feels better." Sam Dekker and Corey Brewer will lose some minutes when Ryno returns.
Jan 22 - 10:14 PM

Ryan Anderson (illness) will not play on Saturday against the Grizzlies.

He was not right at all with just nine minutes on Friday. A doctor told him he may have to deal with this stomach bug for 1-2 weeks, so there is a very good chance Anderson misses more games. While he is out, we'll see more Sam Dekker and Corey Brewer. If you want to pick one up in a deeper league, we'd prefer Dekker.
