The Spurs announced today that they have assigned James Anderson to the Austin Toros.
Anderson, a 6-6, 215-pound guard, has been out since November 11 when he was diagnosed with a stress fracture in the fifth metatarsal of his right foot. Before the injury, he appeared in six games for the Spurs, averaging 7.0 points and 1.5 assists in 17.7 minutes per game. He is shooting .424 (14-33) from the field and .500 (10-20) from three-point land.
Anderson is the first player the Spurs have assigned to the Toros this season. The Toros host the Reno Bighorns today at 11:00 a.m. at the Cedar Park Center.
Anderson will have the opportunity to work himself back into playing shape in Austin while seeing more time on the floor for the Toros.

I like the move. I think it gives him some time to get back into shape while playing more minutes than he would've with the Spurs.
This is a double edge sword, Anderson will have some time finding his way back into the Spurs rotation while in Austin but also risk further injury while playing against D-League talent. I hope the Spurs made the right move.
This is good opportunity for Anderson to get back into game shape, nice move by the Spurs. McDyess, George Hill and Gary Neal can take care of the bench while waiting for Anderson and Bonner's comeback.
well, it's not a surprise now, since we pretty much knew this was going to happen, but this is good for Anderson to get back into rhythm before he rejoins the team. can't wait to see you back on the floor, Anderson!
hopefully anderson can get in rhythm within a month.. we need his minutes to rest ginbili and parker more... besides he can shoot the 3 better than parker.
