James Anderson signed a one-year deal with Zalgiris Kaunas of Lithuania.
Anderson averaged 10.1 points, 1.4 3-pointers, 3.8 rebounds, and 1.8 assists with the 76ers during the 2013-14 season, but will head overseas to play in the LKL and Euroleague for at least a year. Anderson is still only 25 years old so this may not be the last we see of him in the NBA, but he won't factor into the fantasy landscape for the 2014-15 season with this news.

The 76ers waive G/F James Anderson.

This move opens up the door for rookie K.J McDaniels, and gives a boost to Tony Wroten. It will be interesting to watch the rotations develop over training camp, but as for James Anderson, he probably left the best possible situation from a fantasy perspective.

James Anderson hit 6-of-14 shots and five 3-pointers for 17 points, six rebounds, three assists and a block in Wednesday's loss to the Raptors.

Anderson has been hit-or-miss all season and had scored a total of 12 points over his previous three games, so don't kick yourself if you didn't see this coming. No one did.

James Anderson scored seven points on 3-of-8 shooting with two rebounds, one block and one three over 27 minutes on Friday against the Celtics.

Anderson and Tony Wroten (eight points, five assists, two steals, 24 minutes) have both disappeared lately and are too risky for use in most leagues. They could wake up at any time, but owners will want to look at them as desperation options at best.

James Anderson had zero points, three rebound and two assists in Wednesday's blowout loss to the Bobcats.

In Anderson's last four games, he's scored 30, five, 19 and then zero points. There's going to be some inconsistency here because Anderson is simply not a legit NBA starter and Tony Wroten is going to get plenty of time off the bench. Owners in search of 3-pointers need to be willing to ride the waves.

James Anderson shot 2-of-8 from the field for five points with four boards, three assists, two steals and one 3-pointer vs. the Pistons on Saturday.

He suffered what looked to be a small bruise to his knee and did not miss time. Anderson was coming off a huge 30-point game on Friday, but he couldn't hit his shots. Still, the steals, trey and stats in other areas made this a somewhat respectable line. He's worth owning in standard leagues as a low-upside, consistent guy.

James Anderson scored a game-high 30 points vs. the Rockets on Thursday with three boards, two assists and six 3-pointers on 11-of-18 from the field.

The Rockets must be his favorite matchup because he put up a career-high 36 against them last time on Nov. 13. Anderson hasn’t looked too great in his time since a leg injury, shooting just 32.1 percent from the field in his previous three games for averages of 8.3 points, 5.3 boards, 2.7 assists, 1.3 steals and 1.0 treys. His playing time is safe and things should improve like they did tonight. There should be enough value to own him in standard leagues.

James Anderson hit just 2-of-5 shots for seven points, four rebounds and one assist in Saturday's loss.

He will get two more chances to shine while Tony Wroten sits with a sprained ankle, but given tonight's dud, he's far from trustworthy right now.

James Anderson (thigh) returned to action in Friday's loss, scoring eight points on 3-of-14 shooting (1-of-10 from deep) with six rebounds, one assist and two steals in 35 minutes.

Anderson made a bad pass late that sealed the Sixers' 23rd straight loss but in general he's back on the floor and that means he projects to be a late-round value. Tony Wroten (ankle) will not travel with the team for Saturday's game and he left the arena on crutches, but these two guys will both get their fill of minutes if they're healthy and/or the Sixers aren't tanking too hard on any given night.

James Anderson (thigh) will play against the Knicks on Friday.

He is expected to start which will bump Tony Wroten back to the bench. Anderson played 36.0 minutes per game in his two games before missing two due to his quad bruise, so he should be back over 30 tonight. Hollis Thompson should see the largest decrease in minutes from his 41 on Monday.

James Anderson (thigh) listed as a game-time decision for Friday's game against the Knicks.

On Wednesday night, Anderson said the "plan" is to return Friday. We'll see. It's a situation for Tony Wroten owners to watch closely as his minutes skyrocket when Anderson is sidelined. Wroten is averaging 17.0 points, 5.5 assists, 5.0 rebounds and 2.0 3-pointers while playing 39.5 minutes over the last two games. He's far more explosive and aggressive than Anderson.
Fri, Mar 21, 2014 10:23:00 AM

James Anderson (thigh) will not play against the Bulls on Wednesday.

It will be his second game in a row out of the lineup and it's not a surprise. The Sixers have lost a franchise-record 21 games in a row and have little reason to play Anderson. Tony Wroten will step in as the starter again, but his first game didn't go well due to shooting only 7-of-18 from the field. Hollis Thompson should be more involved in the offense in a tough matchup.

James Anderson (bruised thigh) didn't travel with the Sixers for Monday's game in Indiana.

One of the Sixers few productive players will be on the sidelines against an elite Pacers team, and anyone playing daily fantasy sports should be mindful that a blowout is all but certain. Anderson's injury may be part of the reason Philly recently signed Darius Johnson-Odom and James Nunnally to 10-day contracts.
Mon, Mar 17, 2014 11:27:00 AM

James Anderson (bruised thigh) left Saturday's game and coach Brett Brown does not expect him to travel with the team for Monday's game vs. the Pacers.

This opens the door up for Tony Wroten to get a healthy heaping of minutes in Monday's game vs. Indiana, and he makes for a decent plug-and-play option. Just know that Indiana's league leading defense is not the best team to go up against from a fantasy perspective.
Sun, Mar 16, 2014 09:16:00 AM

James Anderson hit just 2-of-11 shots for four points in Saturday's loss.

He was 0-for-6 from downtown and just couldn't get it going tonight. He hit five 3-pointers for 17 points on Wednesday, and has been a fairly reliable, low-end, fantasy shooting guard for most of the season. Tony Wroten played well off the bench with 13 points and a full stat line on 6-of-11 shooting. Anderson should bounce back in his next one.
