Description: Pelicans forward Ryan Anderson will miss two-to-four weeks after an MRI revealed an MCL sprain.
Insight: Tough news for owners and Pelicans fans, with Anthony Davis sidelined as well. Alexis Ajinca, Dante Cunningham, and Justin Hamilton will see increased time.
 
2/21/2015 10:10:00 PM
Description: Pelicans forward Ryan Anderson sprained his right knee on Saturday night and will not return.
Insight: The news keeps getting worse for New Orleans, as they lost Anthony Davis earlier in the night. Luke Babbit, Dante Cunningham, and Quincy Pondexter would see an increase in minutes if Anderson misses extended time.
 
Cold2/20/2015 6:40:00 PM
Description: Despite listed as doubtful, Pelicans power forward Ryan Anderson will try to play Friday. UPDATE: Anderson will play on Friday.
Insight: Anderson has a strained ligament in his shooting elbow, so this is bad news. Even if he plays, Anderson will be limited, so fantasy owners should probably consider benching him regardless of whether he plays.
 
Cold2/20/2015 2:49:00 PM
Description: Pelicans backup power forward Ryan Anderson has been downgraded to doubtful for Friday's game against Orlando after apparently having a setback on his sore right elbow during the morning shootaround.

Description: Pelicans backup power forward Ryan Anderson will miss Wednesday's game due to an elbow issue.
Insight: Anderson averages 14.9 ppg, 5.2 rpg, 1.0 apg. Strangely, he's averaging more off the bench than as a starter this season which is contrary to his career numbers. If Anthony davis also sits, Alexis Ajinca and Dante Cunningham would see extended minutes.

Insight: He went 10-of-15 from the field and 6-of-10 from beyond the arc for 28 points, four rebounds, three assists, and two steals. Anderson should be active everywhere.
 
12/12/2014 10:31:00 PM

Description: Pelicans power forward Ryan Anderson scored 32 points off the bench in Monday's loss to Cleveland.
Insight: He hit a ridiculous eight 3-pointers, and also had five rebounds, three assists, and one steal. Anderson can shoot from deep with the best of them.

Description: New Orleans power forward Ryan Anderson will need at least two months to recover from a herniated disk in his back. SOURCE: John Reid, New Orleans Times-Picayune
Insight: He may even need surgery. Anderson, who is averaging a career-high 19.8 ppg this season, leads the NBA in free throw shooting at 95.2 percent. Obviously, this is a crushing blow to fantasy owners who had been relying on Anderson's excellent touch from beyond the arc (40.9 percent this season).
 
1/7/2014 11:32:00 AM
Description: Pelicans forward Ryan Anderson has been diagnosed with a herniated disc and is out indefinitely.
Insight: Anderson's absence could be good for Anthony Davis as he'll play most of his minutes against power forwards instead of bigger centers. Center Alexis Ajinca posted a season-high 17 points on Saturday in his second start of the season.
