Anthony scored six points (3-3 FG) with six rebounds, one assist, one steal and four blocks in 26 minutes Saturday.

Anthony saw some extra run with Anthony Tolliver battling foul trouble and Greg Monroe (knee) sidelined. In only 15 minutes over his last five games, Anthony is averaging 2.0 blocks per game, but offers little aside from that category to fantasy owners and when Monroe return, Anthony will likely see his role reduced significantly, or possibly minimised completely.

Anthony scored a season-high 10 points (5-9 FG, 0-1 FT) with five rebounds and one block in 21 minutes Saturday.

Anthony was called into action with Andre Drummond going down with a concussion and played a season high in minutes as well as scoring in double-digits for the first time. The 10 points were more than he had scored in his previous nine games combined, but if Drummond is forced to miss time, Anthony may be a sneaky source of blocks and rebounds in deeper leagues.

Anthony finished with four points (1-2 FG, 2-2 FT) and three rebounds in seven minutes off the bench during Wednesday's victory over the Orlando Magic.

Anthony has played in only 23 games this season, averaging six minutes per contest. He'll continue having a tough time finding minutes behind the likes of Andre Drummond and Greg Monroe, so he'll be irrelevant in all fantasy formats. Unless an injury occurs, he'll continue to play mostly in garbage time at the end of games.

Anthony has seen time on the court in just eight games this season and is averaging 7.1 minutes over those contests.

Anthony is buried on the depth chart under Andre Drummond and Greg Monroe which poses problems for the 32-year-old's playing time this season. Unless injuries become a problem for the Pistons, Anthony will likely be stuck on the pine moving forward.

Anthony has averaged 19 minutes in his first two games with the Pistons, but his playing time figures to take a hit when Greg Monroe returns from a suspension Saturday against the Nets.

Anthony has averaged two points, 4.5 rebounds and one block through his first two games as a Piston. Aside from the absence of Monroe in these first two games, Anthony's playing time was also boosted by Andre Drummond's foul trouble. Once Monroe returns, he would be the Pistons first option to see extra run at center should Drummond continue to rack up fouls at an alarming rate. Anthony will slide back into his expected depth role and see limited action going forward.

Anthony has been traded to the Pistons ESPN reports.

Anthony has been shipped to the Pistons in exchange for guard Will Bynum. Anthony served as a reserve big man for the Celtics, and should carry that role on as he moves to Detroit. He will play behind centers Andre Drummond and Greg Monroe, and will not have much fantasy value unless one of the aforementioned players gets hurt or traded.
