New Orleans Pelicans announced in a press release today that Ryan Anderson would miss roughly one-three weeks due to a chip fracture in the second toe of his right foot. Anderson began feeling discomfort recently after practice and team doctors began examination.
The New Orleans forward is officially listed as day-to-day. Last year, Anderson averaged 30.90 minutes a game with a .423 field goal percentage, .382 three-point percentage, .844 free throw percentage, 6.41 rebounds, 1.20 assists, .52 steals, .38 blocks, 1.20 turnovers, and 16.16 points per game.
The Pelicans open the season tonight against the Indiana Pacers at home in New Orleans Arena. With newly acquired All-Star Jrue Holiday to lead the way in New Orleans, the Pelicans will have to look for Tyreke Evans and Jeff Withey to also step in to help their new team. Eric Gordon will also be returning to his team after playing in only 42 games and averaging 17 points a game last season while battling a knee injury.
