Ryan Anderson PF NO 28 Days

The Pelicans are shopping Ryan Anderson in a trade, according to Yahoo! Sports.

The Pelicans traded their 2014 first-round draft pick in the Jrue Holiday deal, so they would like to get in the mix tonight. Anderson played just 22 games last year, but made a whopping 3.0 treys per game. He is on schedule to return from his neck surgery and should be ready for training camp. The arrival of Omer Asik could also hurt Anderson's playing time, but he should bury plenty of treys no matter where he plays.

Coach Monty Williams said Ryan Anderson is "on target" from his rehab and he is expected to be ready for training camp.

Dating back to April, Anderson's prognosis has him expected to resume basketball activities in August to October. He had spine surgery on Apr. 8 after suffering his back injury on Jan 3. He was knocking down 3.0 triples per game before injury and should start hit the ground running next season.

Ryan Anderson (spine surgery) is expected to resume basketball activities in 4-6 months.

The Tuesday surgery on Anderson's cervical spine for a herniated disc was deemed a success. Given the timetable, it's possible that he'll be ready to return for the start of the 2014-15 season. It's an injury to monitor closely as Anderson is a candidate to lead the league in 3-pointers anytime he's getting 30+ minutes a night.

Ryan Anderson had surgery on Tuesday to repair a herniated cervical disc.

Anderson did all he could to avoid season-ending surgery, but in the end it proved unavoidable. He wrote that the surgery went "really well" and the Pelicans should provide a timetable for his recovery in the next few weeks. He was having a terrific season before the injury, pitching in 19.8 points per game with a whopping 3.0 three-pointers on 40.9 percent shooting from downtown.

Ryan Anderson will have surgery to repair the herniated cervical disc which ended his 2013-14 season.

Ryan Anderson is "talking to a number of doctors all over the country" about the herniated disc in his neck which ended his season after 19 games.

Anderson is done for the 2013-14 season and the lack of clarity about his rehab and recovery leaves open the possibility that he won't be ready for training camp, either. The Pelicans trainers are still working with him and we'll pass along any updates as they become available.

Ryan Anderson said Monday that his herniated discs aren't healing and that he's still experiencing tingling in fingers.

Anderson will get a second opinion on Tuesday and at this point we can only hope that his long-term future isn't at risk. His season ended when the Pelicans received an injured player exception in February.

The Pelicans received their Disabled Player Exception valued at $4.15 million for Ryan Anderson on Wednesday.

This news ends Ryan Anderson's season and the team is certainly going to miss him after he was playing well. The Pelicans might not want to use this spot because helping their team win is probably not good for their future. Their 2014 first-round pick goes to the Sixers and is top-six protected, so it would behoove them to have one of the worst records in the NBA heading into a loaded 2014 NBA Draft.

The Pelicans will soon receive a Disabled Player Exception for Ryan Anderson (neck), according to ESPN's Marc Stein.

The exception is expected to be worth around $4 million, allowing New Orleans to sign a replacement player without salary-cap penalties. The more important implication is that Anderson wouldn't return this season, though it's unclear whether he'll require surgery to repair the herniated disc in his neck. Stay tuned for official confirmation.

Ryan Anderson (neck) is scheduled to get another medical evaluation later this month and will also seek a second opinion from another doctor.

Out since January 3rd with a herniated disc, Anderson is feeling better and received clearance to fly with the Pelicans three weeks ago. "I want to be really conservative with this because it is a pretty serious thing," Anderson said before Wednesday night's game. "I'm really waiting until the next check up, so I can get cleared and maybe start doing a little bit more. At least get back in some kind of shape." The Pelicans haven't ruled out a return for Anderson, but those comments combined with the team' 23-29 record don't provide a lot hope for owners hoping to get some value out of the big man this season.
