Ryan Anderson PF NO 2 Days

Anderson (knee) said he hopes to be able to return to action in a week, the New Orleans Advocate's Darrell J. Williams reports.

He got a custom-made brace Wednesday for his sprained right knee that provides more stability than the sleeve he had been using. Anderson says his lateral movement has improved, but he is still only about 80 percent healthy and has not been able to do explosive exercises. Considering the Pelicans are three and a half games out of the final playoff spot in the Western Conference with only 12 games to play, they could realistically be eliminated from playoff contention in the coming weeks, at which point the Pelicans would likely abandon any attempt to bring Anderson back this season.

Anderson (knee) said Friday that he's making strides in his return from a right MCL sprain.

The forward is yet to return to basketball activities, but he's no longer wearing a knee brace and is currently focusing on strength and mobility exercises. "Recovery has been a process. I'm really working a lot on getting mobility back, just walking," Anderson said. "The past week, I've made big strides, as far as getting out of a big knee brace. My flexibility is a lot better, as far as rotation. I haven't tried anything on the court yet," Anderson said. The team said Anderson remains without a return date, but he was initially given a 2-to-4 week timetable. He'll remain out for the foreseeable future, at least until he returns to basketball activities.
