Description: Nets have SF Alan Anderson is questionable for Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals Saturday against Toronto.
Insight: He's dealing with a sore abdominal muscle and missed four consecutive games to end the season. Anderson (7.2 ppg) should be ready to go for the playoffs but has little fantasy value.
 
4/15/2014 11:57:00 AM
Description: The Nets have already ruled Alan Anderson out for Tuesday's game with the Knicks, according to Tim Bontemps of the New York Post.
Insight: He's dealing with a sore abdominal muscle and will miss his third consecutive game. Anderson (7.2 ppg) should be ready to go for the playoffs but has very little fantasy value.

Description: The Nets have already ruled Alan Anderson out for Sunday's game against the Magic. SOURCE: Newsday
Insight: He's dealing with a sore abdominal muscle. Anderson (7.2 ppg) has only registered double-digit points once in his last five contests so it's not a big loss for fantasy owners.
 
4/11/2014 6:47:00 PM
Description: Nets guard Alan Anderson was scratched from Friday's lineup due to sore abdominal muscles, according to Andy Vasquez of the Bergen Record.
Insight: Anderson was going to get another chance to start with Shaun Livingston out, but Andrei Kirilenko will replace him. Marcus Thornton also should see a good chunk of minutes.
 
3/30/2014 9:54:00 PM
Description: Nets guard Alan Anderson has scored double-digit points in three straight games.
Insight: He hadn't scored in double figures in seven straight games prior to the last three, but he has been playing more recently due to injuries to Andrei Kirilenko and Marcus Thornton.
 
12/20/2013 10:27:00 PM
Description: Nets guard Alan Anderson scored 26 points with five rebounds and five treys Friday against the 76ers.
Insight: Joe Johnson was out for personal reasons, allowing Anderson to play 46 minutes in Brooklyn's overtime loss. Anderson has been starting at small forward with Paul Pierce coming off the bench, but isn't providing much fantasy value.
 
12/3/2013 11:18:00 AM
Description: Nets swingman Alan Anderson should most of the court time at small forward over the next two weeks with starter Paul Pierce sidelined.
Insight: Anderson has never averaged more than 10.7 ppg in any of his five seasons, so his fantasy value is limited.
 
3/22/2013 10:47:00 PM
Description: Toronto swingman Alan Anderson netted a career-high 35 points Friday against New York.
Insight: Anderson logged 36 minutes in the five-point loss, his heaviest workload since January 23rd against Miami. If Rudy Gay's back continues to cause him pain, Anderson could take over as the starter at small forward.
 
2/13/2013 10:20:00 PM
Description: After only taking 19 shots in Rudy Gay's first four games with the team, Raptors swingman Alan Anderson has attempted 35 over the last three. He made 10-of-16 with six threes for a team-high 26 points in 30 minutes Wednesday against the Knicks.
Insight: The Gay trade didn't look good for Anderson's fantasy value since both Gay and DeMar DeRozan play upwards of 37 minutes per game but Anderson has played 30 minutes in two of the last three games as the team has mixed and matched with its rotation. It's going to be hard to trust any Raptors but Gay, DeRozan and Kyle Lowry on a game-to-game basis, however.
 
2/1/2013 9:59:00 PM
Description: In Rudy Gay's first game with the team, Raptors swingman Alan Anderson only played 13 minutes and shot 0-of-4.
Insight: As we predicted, Anderson's fantasy value has evaporated overnight now that Gay is in town. With Gay and DeRozan, two heavy-minute wing players, in the starting lineup, there will be little time for Anderson to make an impact.
 
1/30/2013 9:12:00 PM
Description: Raptors swingman Alan Anderson is averaging 14.8 points, 2.5 rebounds, 2.2 assists, 1.2 steals and 2.1 threes in 27 minutes over his last 21 games as a backup to the shooting guard and small forward positions, but Toronto's acquisition of Rudy Gay could put an end to his usefulness in fantasy leagues.
Insight: Gay is a heavy minutes and shots player and that won't change in Toronto. Anderson will have to split minutes with Landry Fields and Terrence Ross off the bench, and there will be fewer minutes to go around with Gay starting.
 
1/16/2013 10:35:00 PM
Description: Raptors guard Alan Anderson burned the Bulls for 27 points on Wednesday night.
Insight: Anderson may have been able to inflict even more damage if he hadn't fouled out in the final minute of overtime. The 27 points matches a season-high for Anderson, who is now averaging 12 ppg.
 
1/16/2013 6:54:00 PM
Description: Toronto guard Alan Anderson chipped his tooth Tuesday at Brooklyn but he's fine for Wednesday night's game against Chicago.
Insight: Anderson has averaged just eight ppg since his 27-point explosion against the Thunder earlier in the month.
 
1/16/2013 11:29:00 AM
Description: Raptors guard-forward Alan Anderson left Tuesday's game with a chipped tooth and is questionable for Wednesday's game against Chicago.
Insight: Anderson's hot streak from early January is over. After scoring 20 and 27 points in back-to-back games, he's only averaged 8.0 ppg over his last four contests. He's back to being a fantasy non-factor.
 
1/15/2013 9:39:00 PM
Description: Raptors guard-forward Alan Anderson left Tuesday's game with a chipped tooth.
Insight: Anderson was 0-of-4 in just nine minutes of play on Tuesday but he came into Tuesday's game averaging 14.5 ppg with 2.3 threes and 1.2 steals over his previous 13 contests.
 
Hot1/9/2013 11:59:00 AM
Description: Multiple injuries to the Raptors' lineup has allowed swingman Alan Anderson the playing time to thrive. Anderson is coming off a 33-minute, 27-point performance against OKC on Sunday.
Insight: Anderson is averaging 23.5 ppg over his last two games. He's worth taking a flier on.
 
Hot1/6/2013 3:45:00 PM
Description: Raptors swingman Alan Anderson added to his hot streak with a 27-point effort on Sunday following a 20-point night on Friday night.
Insight: Anderson is averaging 12.1 ppg this season, but with the Raptors facing injuries along their front line he's getting more opportunities to score of late and taking full advantage.
 
1/4/2013 10:18:00 PM
Description: Raptors swingman Alan Anderson didn't shoot particularly well on Friday against the Kings but did hit enough to score 20 points in 26 minutes.
Insight: Anderson is averaging 14.6 points with 2.3 threes and 1.3 steals per game in his last nine games. He's attempting 6.1 3-pointers in 26 minutes per game during that stretch.
 
12/30/2012 1:06:00 PM
Description: Raptors guard-forward Alan Anderson is averaging 15.3 ppg during a streak of seven straight double-digit scoring efforts.
Insight: Anderson missed 17 games with a partially torn plantar fasciia in his left foot but has played a big role since returning. He is a 3-point specialist, making 19 in his last seven games.
 
12/18/2012 9:41:00 PM
Description: Raptors guard-forward Alan Anderson has scored 42 points on 12-of-24 shooting (8-of-14 3PT) in his last two games after going 0-for-8 in his return to the lineup last Friday.
Insight: Anderson missed 17 games with a partially torn plantar fasciia in his left foot. He could move back into the starting lineup in place of Mickael Pietrus if he keeps playing at this level.
