Chris Andersen (knee) will miss Friday's game against the Hornets.

Feb 4 - 1:58 PM

Chris Andersen (knee) will not play against the Rockets on Tuesday.

Andersen made the trip with the Heat after missing nine consecutive games, but will not play against the Rockets on Tuesday. Birdman isn't a big part of the Heat's rotation anyway and can be left on waivers in all fantasy leagues.
Feb 2 - 12:16 PM

Chris Andersen (knee) will remain sidelined for Sunday's game vs. the Hawks.

It'll be the Birdman's ninth consecutive game on the sidelines, and he's not even expected to play at any point during Miami's upcoming three-game road trip. We're going to consider him "out indefinitely," and he belongs on the waiver wire in all leagues, as he's a negligible part of the rotation even when healthy.
Jan 31 - 4:33 PM

Chris Andersen (knee) will not travel with team on their upcoming five-game road trip.

Andersen is a negligible part of the rotation in Miami, and belongs on the waiver wire in all leagues.
Jan 19 - 5:59 PM

Chris Andersen (knee) will not play on Tuesday night.

He is not going to be in the rotation while Hassan Whiteside is healthy. Andersen can be ignored everywhere.
Jan 18 - 3:00 PM

An MRI revealed a left knee bone bruise for Chris Andersen.

He's not with the team, so he will not play Sunday vs. the Thunder in OKC, but there's a chance he's available to play Tuesday vs. the Bucks. That being said, Birdman is averaging just five minutes per game this season and belongs on the waiver wire in all leagues.
Jan 17 - 5:53 PM

He won't be in the rotation as long as Hassan Whiteside is good to go. Andersen can be ignored in almost all leagues.

Chris Andersen (sore left knee) will not play Friday vs. the Nuggets.

Andersen played a mere three minutes during Wednesday's loss to the Clippers, and managed to hurt himself during those three minutes on the court. He's played in a total of seven games this season, and has no business being owned in any format.
Jan 14 - 4:57 PM

Chris Andersen started for Hassan Whiteside (knee) on Monday with two points, two boards, one assist, one steal and one block in 10 minutes.

The Birman didn't play at all down in the fourth or in overtime and he basically maxes out at around 10 minutes anyway. Andersen has very little value.

P.S. Prrrrrrrrrrrr.
Jan 5 - 2:04 AM

Chris Andersen will start in place of Hassan Whiteside on Monday.

He won't be playing much tonight. Unless you're in a very, very deep league, you can leave him on the wire.
Jan 4 - 6:53 PM

Chris Andersen picked up a DNP-CD on Tuesday vs. the Pistons.

He was on the injury report for an illness earlier in the week, but the Birdman will be available for Friday's game vs. the Pelicans. However, he has logged just 17 total minutes on the season, so he isn't an option in fantasy leagues.

Chris Andersen (illness) will be available for Sunday's game vs. the Blazers.

The Birdman likely won't touch the court, but he will be available in emergency situations. Andersen is not a fantasy asset.
