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.

 Comment1/13/2014 6:16 PMmbuser 0% (0) Just posted to Status Updates page: he's out at least two months, and season-ending surgery can't be ruled out before he has a follow-up MRI in March.

 Comment1/7/2014 1:45 PMterryalj 100% (4)Think you'll get the canned situational answer here, if you're coasting to the playoffs I think you keep. If you're in trouble I think you let go immediately.

 Comment10/24/2013 7:39 PMbobbyhurley 0% (0)TS% suggests he's a pretty efficient scorer. And people are needlessly worrying about his minutes and shots two years in a row. Slipping in drafts, still worth it.
 Comment10/24/2013 6:27 PMZeroStatic 100% (3)A chucker? He's one of the best catch and shoot 3 point men around.
 Comment10/24/2013 4:48 PMrico381 0% (0)I just think of him like a SG. Kyle Korver with slight tradeoffs. Don't put him in place of a big unless you're going small.
