News: Anderson (rest) ultimately did not play in Wednesday's season finale. Impact: Anderson was one of many playoff bound players that received some rest during their team's final game of the season Wednesday. He stands of a great chance of suiting up for the Heat's first playoff game Sunday against the Bobcats.(RotoWire, )
Mon. Apr 14, 2014
News: Andersen is doubtful to play Wednesday, the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports. Impact: This means Monday's game is likely Andersen's regular season finale, and he can be dropped in single-season formats after the tilt.(RotoWire, )
Fri. Apr 11, 2014
News: Anderson (knee) returned from a one-game absence and played 16 minutes with five points (1-4 FG, 3-4 FT) and six points in the win over Indiana on Friday. Impact: Andersen has missed two of the Heat's last four games, but has been an effective rebounder in limited minutes. He could provide rebounds and blocks for fantasy playoff leagues.(RotoWire, )

News: Andersen will play Friday against the Pacers, the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports. Impact: Andersen will suit up, after missing Wednesday's game with a knee injury, but he'll provide another big body off the bench against the Pacers with Greg Oden (back) out and Chris Bosh starting at center.(RotoWire, )

News: Anderson (knee) is considered a game-time decision to play Friday, the Heat's official Twitter account reports. Impact: Anderson was a limited participant during Friday morning's shootaround and will have to wait until closer to tip-off before a decision is made on his playing status. The center has been in and out of Miami's lineup over the past week, but would surely help defend a big Indiana front-court if he's cleared for Friday's game.(RotoWire, )

News: Andersen (knee) will not play Wednesday versus the Grizzlies. Impact: Andersen's absence will the leave the Heat very shorthanded in the frontcourt, as he joins Udonis Haslem (illness) and Greg Oden (back) on the sideline. Andersen is day-to-day at this point, and the Heat could hold him out of a couple games down the stretch to ensure his health for a playoff run.(RotoWire, )
Tue. Apr 8, 2014
News: Andersen (back) took the court Tuesday, but scored just five points with five boards in 19 minutes against the Nets. Impact: He wasn't his typical self, as he didn't block a shot, which is his only source of value in fantasy leagues. The Heat will want him fresh for the playoffs, so if his back is bothering him it wouldn't be surprising if he got a rest day before the end of the regular season.(RotoWire, )
Tue. Apr 8, 2014
News: Andersen (back) intends to play Tuesday against the Nets, the Miami Herald reports. Impact: Andersen is averaging 8.4 rebounds over the last five games, and he's been producing deep league fantasy value over the recent stretch. Consider him worth owning in 16-man leagues or deeper.(RotoWire, )
Tue. Apr 8, 2014
News: Andersen is out with a bruised right knee. Impact: It's unclear when Andersen will be back, but he's considered day-to-day. The Heat are afforded the luxury of resting him for the playoffs.(STATS, 01:16am)
Apr 6, 2014
News: Andersen will not play in Sunday's contest against the Knicks due to back and knee problems, the South Florida Sun-Sentinal reports. Impact: Anderson hasn't missed any time prior to Sunday's game, so it's possible the injuries surfaced at some point following Friday's game against the Timberwolves. The "Birdman" has given the Heat some quality minutes off the bench as of late, averaging 8.4 rebounds and ten points in 21.8 minutes over his last five games. He will likely be day-to-day going forward.(RotoWire, )
