|by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com|
|(3/25/15) Pelicans forward Ryan Anderson is able to increase his workload on his knee and he said he hopes to return in a week, reports the neworleansadvocate.com.
Anderson has been out since Feb. 21 after spraining his knee, but he has hasn't been able to do any explosive exercises. He said he's about 80 percent recovered.
"We're doing more and more each day," Anderson said.
Injuries costing Pelicans chance for post season
|(3/24/15) The Pelicans have been riddled with injuries this season, including the recently hampered Tyreke Evans (ankle) and Omer Asik (calf strain), and currently sit three games, with 12 to play, behind the eighth-place Thunder, leading many to believe that New Orleans won't make the playoffs, according to NBA.com|
The Pelicans haven’t been close to full strength since Feb. 21 when both forwards Anthony Davis (ankle) and Ryan Anderson (knee) were sidelined by injuries.
Although Davis has recently returned to the lineup, Anderson remains out with no timetable to return.

No return date yet for improving Pelicans forward Ryan Anderson
|by CBSSports.com Staff | CBSSports.com|
|(3/17/15) Pelicans forward Ryan Anderson (knee sprain) has been cleared to run and perform other exercises, but no exact timetable for his return has been determined, per NBA.com.
“From last week, I wasn’t even doing anything close to running,” Anderson said. “This week it’s made a lot of progress… I haven’t done a ton of on-court stuff yet. I started to jog the other day. We did a little bit of lateral work, but that’s where I’m going to have the most problem, because of the way my knee bent.”
Anderson suffered a right MCL knee sprain Feb. 21 at Miami and has missed 11 games. Anderson is averaging 14.6 points and 5.1 rebounds per game this season.
Pelicans' Ryan Anderson (MCL sprain) uncertain of timetable on his return
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(3/6/15) Pelicans forward Ryan Anderson told reporters there is no set timetable on his return from a sprained MCL in his right knee, per the team's official website.
"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. We're still doing some pool work and I did stuff on the arc trainer, which is kind of a treadmill that takes some of the weight off your body. It's tough, but it's something I have to do to get better."
Anderson suffered the injury Feb. 21 against the Heat, and was given a two-to-four-week timetable for return. He was averaging 14.6 points per contest before the injury.
"It's really when my body feels good," Anderson said of his eventual return. "The strength work is going to be a part of it the next few weeks, building back up. Obviously I want to get back as soon as I can."
|Pelicans forward Ryan Anderson is in danger of missing the start of the 2014-15 season after undergoing cervical spine surgery in early April. Anderson endured a scary moment against the Celtics, as he was involved in a nasty collision in early January, which cut a productive season prematurely. In 22 games, Anderson averaged 19.8 points and 6.5 rebounds on 43.8 percent shooting and 40.9 percent from downtown. He also averaged 3.0 made 3-pointers per contest, the most he's averaged in his career. The season starts in late October, which would leave him in his sixth month of recovery. Fantasy owners should keep an eye on his recovery, especially in Roto leagues. That said, we expect Anderson to need some time to get adjusted back into the thick of things, especially since he'll be used as a reserve behind Anthony Davis once he's healthy. He’s worth targeting in the later rounds come Draft Day.
