Justin Anderson praised his former G league coaches for having him prepared for the NBA Restart.
Anderson has already logged more minutes for Brooklyn in the bubble than he did during the regular season. After three appearances in January where he averaged 1.0 points in just over five minutes a night he has earned a larger role with the depleted Nets and has averaged 5.6 points and 3.0 rebounds in three appearances since the restart. “Major credit to Ronnie Burrell who was my G League assistant, helped keep me ready, Shaun Fein as well, those guys down there encouraging me”, said Anderson, who hit three 3-point shots in Brooklyn’s shocking win over Milwaukee on Tuesday. With such a thin roster, Anderson should be able to keep a bench role throughout the remainder of the seeding games and the duration of the Nets playoff run.

Justin Anderson, who signed with the Nets in June, was held scoreless in 10 minutes of action on Friday, but added three rebounds, four assists and one block to the box score.
Anderson is here for depth and nothing more. He's not going to get a heavy run from the team moving forward, so don't expect him to stay fantasy-relevant over the remaining seven games.

Justin Anderson played 18 minutes in Saturday's scrimmage, picking up five points, five rebounds, five assists, a 3-pointer and two steals.
Anderson's well-rounded game was on full display in today's cameo, and the state of Brooklyn's roster puts him in position to be a legitimate rotation player. He has a bit of a Kyle Anderson feel to him, so any fantasy appeal will be generated by consistent but modest numbers in rebounds and assists and strong per-minute defensive stats. Anderson is shaping up as a sleeper for resumption drafts.

Justin Anderson finally rejoined the Nets for Tuesday’s practice in Orlando, while he revealed that the reason for this delay was that he previously tested positive for COVID-19.
Anderson had multiple positive tests during the shutdown, before finally clearing quarantine just in time for the Nets’ first scrimmage against the Pelicans. After a January cameo with Brooklyn on a 10-day deal, he had been in the G League with Long Island when the season was suspended. The Nets could really use any healthy bodies right now and Anderson should get plenty of backup minutes once the games restart.

Jamal Crawford, Tyler Johnson, and Justin Anderson, all of whom the Nets signed within the last calendar month, will not participate in Wedneday's scrimmage vs. the Pelicans.
It's somewhat interesting that Johnson, who signed in late-June, won't be taking the floor but Crawford and Anderson only signed recently. The Nets are badly ravaged by injuries as they try prepare for the NBA's return, and these three guys very likely wouldn't be on the roster if they were at full strength.

The Nets have signed Justin Anderson and he’ll be with the team later on Saturday.
Brooklyn lost replacement player Michael Beasley, who tested positive for COVID, and have been connected to Anderson since June. With the deal now official, look for him to be a factor in their depleted power forward rotation. He’s flashed multi-cat potential in previous stops around the NBA and may find enough minutes to be usable in deeper fantasy formats.

Justin Anderson was signed in late June to the Nets roster and will remain on it until the end of the year.
Anderson was signed as an extra body since the Nets have a few players who are opting out of the season resumption. He only appeared in three games with the Nets before re-signing with them and placed outside the top-500 in fantasy leagues.

The Nets will be signing Justin Anderson.
Anderson was traded to the Brooklyn organization from Toronto earlier in the year, though that move was mostly about G League rosters. He appeared in three games with the Nets on a 10-day contract but only saw action in garbage time. Anderson has the physical profile of a multi-position defender (with the potential to become a steals and blocks guy in fantasy) but his last meaningful NBA action came two years ago with the Hawks. Even with Wilson Chandler sitting out, this is just a depth signing.

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.
