Alan Anderson was not at SECU Arena with his new teammates Thursday as they labored through their third grueling practice of training camp. He was in New York, visiting the doctor who completed the surgery on his left ankle over the summer, Wizards Coach Randy Wittman said. “We’re anticipating that hopefully he’ll give him the go-ahead to start,” Wittman said. “We should know more tomorrow.” Anderson had bone spurs removed from the ankle during the offseason and has not practiced yet; he was limited to rehab exercises on the sideline during the first two days of practice. The 32-year-old swingman signed a one-year, $4 million with the Wizards in July.
Basketball Insiders: This summer, you guys lost Paul Pierce, but you added some quality veterans in Jared Dudley, Gary Neal and Alan Anderson among others. Personally, I liked the moves since those guys can be key contributors and they will improve your depth. What did you think of the team’s offseason? John Wall: “It was great. It was tough losing Paul [Pierce], Rasual [Butler] and those guys because they helped us a lot, but I like the additions. Alan [Anderson] can help us. Gary [Neal] has been around a team that’s been to the Finals. A guy like Jared Dudley knows what it takes to win and he’s someone who knows his role. These are all veteran guys who know their role and who can come in and just help us win games. Those kind of guys are key.”
