Anderson scored 23 points (9-11 FG, 5-6 3Pt), grabbed six rebounds, dished two assists, and recorded one steal in 35 minutes Thursday in Houston's win over Utah.

EDGE Analysis

Anderson resides where he is most comfortable and most effective, behind the three-point line. So far in the 2017-18 season, Anderson is taking 73-percent of his shot attempts from beyond the arc, connecting on 42.3-percent at a staggering 7.1 attempts per game. As a team, Houston takes almost half of their shots from deep, by far the most in the league. The gap in three-point frequency between the top two teams, Houston (48.6-percent) and Miami (36.7-percent) exists between Miami and New York (24.8-percent), who rank 28th. As long as he remains healthy, Anderson's shooting will be an integral part of what Houston wants to do, and he should stay on your fantasy radar.

Anderson (back) will start at power forward for Thursday's matchup against the Jazz, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports.

EDGE Analysis

Anderson left Sunday's game against the Lakers after just 12 minutes due to tightness in his back, and was subsequently listed as questionable for Thursday's contest. However, he was later upgraded to probable, so it is not surprising to see him active. Look for him to take on his usual workload barring any setbacks.

Anderson (back) has been upgraded to probable for Thursday's game against the Jazz, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports.

EDGE Analysis

Anderson was forced to leave Sunday's game against the Lakers after just 12 minutes because of tightness in his back, but after going through practice Tuesday without any issues, he's now been upgraded to probable. If all goes as planned and Anderson doesn't suffer any setbacks during morning shootaround or pregame warmups, look for him take on his usual role in the starting lineup at power forward.

Anderson (back) is still questionable to play Thursday against the Jazz despite participating in practice Tuesday, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports.

EDGE Analysis

Anderson exited Sunday's game with back tightness and was unable to return. His participation in practice is a great sign about how he's dealing with the pain in his back. If he's unable to play Thursday, Luc Mbah a Moute will likely draw the start and see an increased role during Anderson's absence.

Anderson left Sunday's game against the Lakers with back tightness and will not return, Tim MacMahon of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Anderson left the game briefly in the first half with back tightness, but then was able to return right away. He'll now be held out for the entire second half, likely as a precautionary measure. With the Rockets having off until Thursday, Anderson doesn't appear to be in any danger of missing time.

Anderson will start at power forward for Monday's game against the Nets, Rockets radio play-by-play announcer Craig Ackerman reports.

EDGE Analysis

After a one-game layoff because of an illness, Anderson was back in the lineup Saturday against the Knicks, but came off the bench and played just 20 minutes. Now that he's further away from the illness, the Rockets are going to reinsert Anderson to the top unit and he should see minutes much closer to his season average of 30.3 per game. With an uptempo and juicy matchup set against the Nets, Anderson should have some viability as a cheaper forward in Monday's DFS slate. Look for P.J. Tucker to head back to the bench.

Anderson amassed 17 points (6-11 FG, 4-7 3PT) and seven rebounds in a 117-102 win over the New York Knicks on Saturday.

EDGE Analysis

Anderson hadn't played for a week due ti an illness, as this was his first game of the season coming off the bench. It may end up proving to be a benefit for Anderson too, as he should get more shots with the second unit. The 17 points scored in this game marked his second-highest total since November 1, which ironically came against these Knicks. He was able to do that damage in just 20 minutes of action, showing just how valuable he can be coming off the bench.

Anderson (illness) is expected to play during Saturday's game against the Knicks, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports.

EDGE Analysis

Anderson missed the team's most recent game Wednesday against the Nuggets while dealing with an illness. After returning to practice Friday, however, he should be considered probable for Saturday's contest. More word on his status should emerge as the team ramps up their activity throughout the day.
