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."

Date:

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.

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.

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.

Ryan Anderson (illness) will not return to Friday's game vs. the Warriors.

He started the game which was a surprise, but clearly didn't look right and finished scoreless in nine minutes. Anderson should be considered questionable for Saturday's game vs. the Grizzlies. Corey Brewer started the second half in his place, but there should be more minutes available for Sam Dekker as well.
Jan 20 - 9:28 PM

Updating a previous report, Ryan Anderson (illness) started on Friday vs. the Warriors with Corey Brewer returning to the bench.

He's not close to 100 percent, so we still expect his minutes to be limited. We'll let you know how he looks after the game.

Ryan Anderson (illness) will not start Friday vs. the Warriors, but is expected to play off the bench.

Corey Brewer will start at small forward again, with Trevor Ariza shifting to power forward. Anderson has missed each of the Rockets last two games and was limited in the two games prior due to a bad case of the flu. Doctors initially told Anderson that he would miss 1-2 weeks. Ryno's minutes will very likely be limited, as he is still not yet close to 100 percent.
Jan 20 - 7:57 PM

Ryan Anderson (illness) will try to play on Friday against the Warriors.

He was not feeling good at shootaround and was headed to get an IV. In other words, there's a decent chance he can't play his normal minutes tonight. If he can't go, we should see more Sam Dekker and Corey Brewer while Trevor Ariza plays the four.
Jan 20 - 6:19 PM

Ryan Anderson (illness) participated in shootaround but remains listed as questionable for Friday's game vs. the Warriors.

Anderson has missed each of the Rockets last two games and was limited in the two games prior as he battled the flu bug. He planned to get intravenous fluids before leaving Toyota Center. "Not feeling so great. Just a stomach virus that's been going around," Anderson said. "It's still kind of there, but I'm going to get an IV after this and try to do it for the game. It's just draining." Anderson is expected to slide back into the starting lineup, assuming he is healthy enough to suit up. Corey Brewer has started at small forward with Anderson out.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: If Anderson is forced to miss another contest, we should see a nice spike in usage for James Harden, which is saying something considering he's already 2nd in the league in that regard. His usage sits at a cool 36.3% on the year, but that number jumps to 41.2% with Anderson off the floor.

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

Corey Brewer got the start on Tuesday with Anderson on the sidelines, and Sam Dekker saw some increased playing time with the second unit, but neither guy did that much. Instead, James Harden took on most of the offensive burden and popped off for a 40-point triple-double, and it'll likely be more of the same this evening.
Jan 18 - 6:28 PM

Ryan Anderson (illness) is questionable to play against the Bucks on Wednesday.

He missed Tuesday's game against the Heat, which allowed Corey Brewer to get a start. If Anderson does miss another game, Brewer, Sam Dekker, Trevor Ariza and Pat Beverley could all see more run. Dekker could be a decent DFS punt today.
Jan 18 - 4:41 PM

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

Corey Brewer will move into the starting five sans Anderson, with Trevor Ariza shifting over to the four-spot, and both James Harden and Eric Gordon will see an uptick to their respective usage rates. Tuesday will be the first game of a back-to-back set, so Anderson doesn't have much time to rest up for Wednesday's game against the Bucks. For now we'll be considering him questionable, and his owners will need to check back for another update closer to Wednesday's tip.

Ryan Anderson (illness) is listed as doubtful for Tuesday's game vs. the Heat.

After playing at least 32 minutes in each of the Rockets first seven games in January, Anderson's minutes have dipped a bit of late. He played just 25 minutes last Friday and then 23 on Sunday. As it turns out, it is because he has been fighting the flu for the last few days. If Anderson is unable to play on Tuesday, Corey Brewer, Sam Dekker, Montrezl Harrell and Trevor Ariza would likely divvy up his playing time. Clint Capela is also slated to return on Tuesday, so that will help fill the frontcourt void left by Anderson.

Ryan Anderson was quiet during Houston's 129-122 victory on Sunday, posting nine points (2-of-8 FGs, 4-of-4 FTs) with four boards and one steal in 32 minutes.

Houston was playing the second game in a back-to-back set, and Anderson didn't quite seem to have his legs under him tonight. He's only scored single-digit points in consecutive games once this season, back in early November, so expect him to bounce back vs. Charlotte on Tuesday.
Jan 8 - 9:01 PM

Ryan Anderson hit just 3-of-7 shots and 2-of-5 3-pointers for eight points, four rebounds, two assists, a steal and a block in Monday's 101-91 win over the Wizards.

Anderson's been a bit hit-or-miss all season and has scored 8, 25, 6 and 22 points in each of his last four games. If you catch him on the right night, he's a game changer. But it's tough to ask for much consistency out of him when he's playing with one of the hottest players on the planet in James Harden. But Anderson should be in weekly lineups either way, as he's hit 2.8 3-pointers per game over his last five, as well as over the entire season.
