The Raptors have acquired the rights to Henry Ellenson from the Nets for Justin Anderson.
This trade was made through each team's G League affiliation, and Ellenson is likely to stay down there while the Raptors are healthy. Ellenson remains off the fantasy radar.

Five days after releasing him following the expiration of his 10-day deal, the Nets are bringing Justin Anderson back to the organization, this time by trading for his G League rights.
The Long Island Nets are acquiring Anderson in exchange for the rights to Henry Ellenson, who had been on a two-way deal with the Nets but was waived on January 3rd so the Nets could sign Chris Chiozza. Anderson appeared in three games for Brooklyn, posting averages of 1.0 points, 0.7 rebounds, and 0.3 blocks in 5.7 minutes.

According to Shams Charania of the Athletic, the Nets have signed Justin Anderson to a 10-day contract on Thursday.
Justin Anderson was playing for the Raptors' G League affiliate prior to signing this 10-day contract. He has played for the Mavs, Sixers and Hawks so far and will look to remain with the Nets for the rest of the season. The Nets were in the market for a wing after they waived David Nwaba (torn Achilles) earlier in the day. Anderson doesn't impact the fantasy landscape for the time being.

Isaac Bonga, Justin Anderson, Admiral Schofield and Jordan McRae are all candidates to start at small forward when the Wizards begin their regular season next week.
Most of the Wizards’ starting lineup is secured, but injuries have eliminated top small forwards Troy Brown and CJ Miles from the rotation for the foreseeable future. The decision will reportedly come down to a second-year player packed with potential who lacks in-game experience, a training-camp invitee who signed a non-guaranteed contract, a rookie who has to do what he is told and a veteran accustomed to fighting for a roster spot. The Wizards have one more preseason game left on Friday in Philadelphia, and the four-man race will continue, but whoever emerges will only have short term value as the Wizards will likely insert Troy Brown to the lineup once he is back from the left calf strain he suffered before training camp.

Davis Bertans came off the bench in Monday's loss to the Knicks and scored nine points, all on threes, in 19 minutes.
Nine of Bertans' 10 shots were from deep, and he also added four rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block tonight. Some have been hoping that with Troy Brown out that Bertans could start, but that role went to Justin Anderson tonight. This performance it about in line with what Bertans provided last season, and unless he can snag some more minutes, he may not be much more than a 3-point streamer.

Justin Anderson is expected to start on Monday against the Knicks.
Anderson is not ticketed for big minutes this season, but he'll get an opportunity early in preseason. Anderson has shown the ability to fill a reserve role but averaged only 9.6 minutes per game for the Hawks last season.

The Wizards signed forward Justin Anderson.
The Wizards could use depth, but Anderson's deal is non-guaranteed and he is unlikely to make a major fantasy impact. He averaged 3.7 points last season in limited action for the Hawks.

According to The Athletic, the Wizards and Justin Anderson are trying to work towards a training camp contract.
Anderson averaged a career-low 9.6 minutes per game with the Hawks last season. The former first-round pick is looking to gain another opportunity on a thin Wizards team. He will likely not have much fantasy value if he manages to make the roster.

Justin Anderson will not be given a qualifying offer from the Hawks.
Anderson heads to unrestricted free agency after averaging a career-low 9.6 mpg last season. He missed the start of the year due to offseason surgery on a stress reaction in his left tibia. There's always been intriguing potential with Anderson, but he's running out of time to show any of it on the court.

Justin Anderson played 13 minutes in Wednesday's season finale against the Pacers, scoring seven points and grabbing three rebounds
The fifth year forward failed to get much opportunity in his first season in Atlanta. He played a career-low 9.6 mpg and failed to make much of an impact aside from a few spot starts in the waning days of the season. He’s not on the radar heading into next year’s drafts.

Justin Anderson played through a neck strain on Friday night and made another start, though he wasn't all that productive with five points, two rebounds, two assists, two steals and a 3-pointer while shooting 1-for-7.
Another made shot or two and the line looks much better, and it's clear that Anderson can chip in at multiple spots in the box score. He's looking at additional minutes for as long as Kevin Huerter and Kent Bazemore are sidelined and is a decent roll of the dice for cash counters. We'd also like to see him play more than 26 minutes, as he did in this one, though the blowout hit pretty much everyone in that regard.

Taurean Prince (bilateral foot soreness) will start on Friday vs. the Magic.
Justin Anderson will start alongside Prince as Kent Bazemore and Kevin Huerter are out.
