Probable Neck surgery Open link
Anderson was a full participant during the Pelicans' opening practice on Tuesday, going through agility drills, contact work, and running at full speed. He looks to have made a full recovery after suffering two herniated discs during a collision with Gerald Wallace back in January that ended up necessitating surgery. "There was no moment where I got hit or where it shocked me or anything like that," Anderson said. "It was just a normal day and it felt good." He is under no medical restrictions, though coach Monty Williams said the team plans to bring him along carefully throughout training camp and preseason. Anderson is still a player that owners should look to draft at a discount come draft day, albeit one that could pay dividends in the mid-rounds.

Injured Cervical spine surgery Open link
Anderson announced Wednesday that he has been cleared for contact work. The news comes eight months after the neck injury he suffered in early January and five months after his cervical spine surgery in early April. This update reaffirms that Anderson should be close to 100 percent when the Pelicans open camp in late September, although his form will need to be monitored, particularly in the early going. His status as a mid-round three-point specialist remains intact, but his minutes upside is capped due to Omer Asik's status as the everyday starting center.

Out for season Herniated discs Open link
Anderson will undergo surgery on April 8 for the two herniated cervical discs in his neck after consulting with a team of physicians. The physicians determined that the surgical option would provide him with the best opportunity to have a full recovery. Surgeons will access Anderson's injured discs through his neck, and once doctors get a closer look, they'll decide whether to replace the missing tissue with a portion of Anderson's own tissue harvested from elsewhere in his body or use tissue from a donor bank. The Pelicans have high hopes that the maximum amount of time Anderson will miss is six months, and team management firmly believes he will be ready for training camp. Anderson has been sidelined since Jan. 3 after initially suffering the injury during a collision with Gerald Wallace. How he's able to recover and progress from his surgery will go a long way in dictating how productive he'll be in the 2014-2015 season.

Out for season Herniated disc Open link
Anderson will undergo surgery on April 8 for his herniated cervical disc after consulting with a team of physicians. The physicians determined that the surgical option would provide him with the best opportunity to have a full recovery. Anderson has been sidelined since Jan. 3 after initially suffering the injury, and had previously said his herniated disc wasn't healing properly and that he was still experiencing tingling in his fingers. How he's able to recover and progress from his surgery will go a long way in dictating how productive he'll be able to be in the 2014-2015 season.

Out for season Herniated disc Open link
Anderson says his herniated discs aren't healing properly and that he's still experiencing tingling in his fingers. He will receive a second opinion on Tuesday. Anderson has already been ruled out for the rest of the season with the Pelicans having received a Disabled Player Exception for him, so this is more of note for his long-term health. How he's able to recover and progress from those herniated discs will go a long way in dictating how productive he'll be able to be in the 2014-2015 season.

Out for season Herniated disc Open link
We have Wednesday confirmation that the Pelicans will receive a Disabled Player Exception of $4.15 million for Anderson, which means he will not return this season. ESPN's Marc Stein first reported the possibility on Tuesday. This update should lock in the opportunity for continued expanded roles for Al-Farouq Aminu, Tyreke Evans, Luke Babbitt, and Greg Stiemsma, but the exception opens up a roster spot and cap space to bring in some help before the exception expires (Mar. 10).

Out for season Herniated disc Open link
The NBA has notified teams that the Pelicans have received a Disabled Player Exception of $4.15 million for Anderson, which definitively rules him out for the remainder of the season. Previous reports were that he was starting to feel his symptoms improve and that he was headed for another evaluation, but Anderson had also added that he planned to be very conservative, given the severity of his injury.

Injured Herniated disc Open link
ESPN's Marc Stein is reporting that the Pelicans may receive a Disabled Player Exception of around four million dollars for Anderson. If this comes to fruition, then it means that Anderson is definitively out for the remainder of the season. Previous reports were that he was starting to feel his symptoms improve and that he was headed for another evaluation, but Anderson had also added that he planned to be very conservative, given the severity of his injury.

Injured Herniated disc Open link
Anderson said he is scheduled to get another medical evaluation for his herniated disc later this month and will also seek a second opinion from another doctor. He has been sidelined since Jan. 3 with a herniated disc after colliding with Gerald Wallace. Of his injury, Anderson said " ... my symptoms are getting a lot better. I don't feel that pain anymore. The fact that I'm feeling better is a good sign, but I'm going to get re-checked and have another MRI. I want to be really conservative with this because it is a pretty serious thing." Anderson traveled with the team for their three-game road trip, though is still expected to be out until March and could likely miss the remainder of the season.
