James Anderson headed back to Toros


Our topic of the week for the latest Toros Nation podcast was on why James Anderson’s stint with the Toros should have been longer.

It appears our wish has been granted as the Spurs just announced that they are re-assigning Anderson to the Toros.

Anderson was with the Toros for two games before the Spurs called him back up prior to their game with the Houston Rockets last Saturday.

Anderson, a 6-6, 215-pound guard, was originally assigned to Austin on January 26.  He appeared in two games for the Toros, averaging 14.5 points and 2.0 rebounds in 14.0 minutes.  He shot .556 (10-18) from the field, .444 (4-9) from three-point territory and .714 (5-7) from the free throw line.  Anderson was recalled by the Spurs on January 29 and saw limited action in three games.

The increased minutes Anderson will see with the Toros should help him as he rehabs from the stress fracture in his fifth metatarsal in his right foot and as he works on improving his conditioning.

“He’s good. James is really good,” Toros forward Lance Thomas said after a recent loss against the New Mexico Thunderbirds. “He’s playing limited minutes but he’s still close to our leading scorer.”

“I love his game,” Thomas said. “The way he’s playing, he won’t be around too much longer.”

It appears Thomas and the rest of the Toros will get a chance to see a lot more of Anderson as he makes his way back from San Antonio.
