    Kyle Anderson (thigh bruise) is now available for Tuesday's game against New Zealand.

    Anderson is the frontrunner to start at SF after his season got cut short due to injury last year. Anderson is a nice late-round pick with upside in fantasy for his defensive potential.

    Kyle Anderson (thigh bruise) is a game-time decision for Tuesday's game against the New Zealand Breakers.

    Anderson was a full participant the past few days and looks ready to return to game action. He needs to stay healthy if he wants to stake a claim to the starting SF spot and make for a nice late-round pick.

    Kyle Anderson (thigh bruise) was able to go through a full practice on Monday after sitting out Sunday's game.

    Anderson is trending in the right direction though the Grizzlies could still hold him out of Tuesday's exhibition game with New Zealand. It's expected that Slo Mo will start at small forward this year, and there's nice bounce-back potential after injuries derailed his first season in Memphis. He's a nice pick any time after pick No. 100. Brandon Clarke (ankle) was also a full participant in today's practice, not surprising after he suited up on Sunday.

    Kyle Anderson (thigh bruise) has been ruled out of Sunday's game versus Maccabi Haifa.

    Anderson will join Jonas Valanciunas and De'Anthony Melton on the sideline for what appears to be a new injury. He has been dealing with shoulder pain over the past few days, but the bruise must have happened in practice. Right now the starting small forward job is up for grabs and if Anderson wants any chance at grabbing ahold of it he will need to stay healthy.

    After stating the previous day that he was unsure if he would be able to practice on Wednesday, Kyle Anderson (shoulder) was a full participant in the Grizzlies first day of training camp.

    It's great to see that Slo Mo was able to log court time today, making for another positive step in his progression to being ready for the start of the season. He also mentioned that he had been working on drills over the last seven weeks, suggesting that his previous comments from the day before were more out of caution than legitimate concern over his recovery. If he stays healthy he is in line for a large role at both forward spots as one of the few Grizzlies players to return from last season. He's a flier pick with upside towards the end of your draft.

    Kyle Anderson (shoulder) will be a full participant in Grizzlies training camp.

    That's great news after Anderson underwent thoracic outlet decompression surgery on his right shoulder in April. He missed all but two games after January 14 and was limited to 43 games in his first season as a Grizzly. There is easy top-75 upside with Slo Mo because of his defensive prowess, so definitely don't forget about him as your drafts inch towards the 10th round.

    Kyle Anderson underwent successful thoracic outlet decompression surgery on Wednesday and is expected to make a full recovery before the Grizzlies' 2019 training camp.

    Anderson was hampered by injuries throughout the 2018-2019 campaign. Hopefully, this operation will allow Anderson to bounce back from a disappointing season.

    Kyle Anderson started the season off slow but eventually picked up the pace and rehabbed his value just outside of the top-100 when on the floor last season.

    Anderson appeared in 43 games and averaged 8.0 points, 0.2 threes, 5.9 boards, 3.0 assists, 1.3 steals and 0.9 blocks per game in 29.8 mpg. Missing preseason games and dealing with an illness, followed by an ankle injury and then ultimately a shoulder injury that sounds like it needs surgery, he was actually headed toward preseason expectations. He has nice bounceback potential next season, assuming he can stay healthy.

    Kyle Anderson (right shoulder soreness) will not play in Saturday's bout against the Suns.

    Anderson's a safe drop in most fantasy leagues this season since he's only played twice since January 14 and the Grizzlies will be choosing the safer route in resting him than aggravating his injury on this lost season.

    Kyle Anderson (right shoulder soreness) will receive an anesthetic injection in his right shoulder and will be re-evaluated in two weeks.

    Anderson has played only twice since January 14 as he has been dealing with persistent shoulder soreness. With him on the shelf for two more weeks before another update, he's safe to drop in the vast majority of fantasy leagues if you've held on this far. Bruno Caboclo, Justin Holiday, C.J. Miles and Chandler Parsons will continue to make up the small forward rotation.

    Kyle Anderson (right shoulder soreness) will remain out on Sunday vs. the Thunder.

    Anderson has appeared in two games since January 14 and he just can't seem to stay healthy. He's visited multiple specialists and has had multiple medical consultations but nothing is seeming to work. There's a good chance Anderson doesn't suit up again this season.

    Kyle Anderson (right shoulder soreness) will have another medical consultation next week and remains without a timetable to return.

    This is at least the third consultation he’s gotten so far so it looks like there’s some uncertainty as to his injury or how to proceed with rehab. Justin Holiday, C.J. Miles, Bruno Caboclo and Chandler Parson will divvy up his minutes.

    Kyle Anderson (sore right shoulder) underwent an MRI and will not play on Friday.

    Anderson has visited multiple specialists with the Grizzlies providing no updates, though hopefully we get something concrete after they get the results of today's tests back. This will be Slo Mo's eighth straight game on the shelf, with Justin Holiday, C.J. Miles, Bruno Caboclo and Chandler Parsons all in the mix to absorb his minutes.

    The Grizzlies will once again be without Kyle Anderson (right shoulder soreness) when they take on the Bulls on Wednesday.

    This will be Anderson's seventh straight game on the sidelines, and he's reportedly going to visit another shoulder specialist. Justin Holiday and Bruno Caboclo will pick up more minutes for as long as Anderson is sidelined.
