Anderson is continuing his recovery from tibial stress syndrome, commonly known as shin splints, in his left leg. After undergoing a program focused on rest, physical therapy, and limited on-court work the past few weeks, he will now resume increased physical activities, including conditioning and basketball training. Anderson will be reevaluated in approximately two weeks.
