Anderson shooting again, but what does it mean?

27

After missing the past 27 games with a stress fracture in his right foot, Anderson remains on track to return to full contact later this month. What happens next isn’t exactly clear. Anderson, the Spurs’ No. 1 pick out of Oklahoma State last June, impressed with his poise and shooting ability in his six-game indoctrination into the NBA prior to being injured. But he’s also missed seven weeks and counting, and the Spurs have moved on without him en route to the league’s best record. Spurs coach Gregg Popovich remains bullish on Anderson’s immediate future. "He showed such a proclivity to catch on quickly," Popovich said. "I would expect he will do it again." Still, there aren’t a lot of backup minutes available on the wing for the Spurs. Not with George Hill and Gary Neal alternately playing like potential Sixth Men of the Year.
