HoopsHype Chris Andersen rumors

Surya Fernandez: Spoelstra confirms that Birdman and Justin Hamilton are out for tonight's game. Everyone else is ready to go. Twitter @SuryaHeatNBA
Me: "Lighter. Erik said you were lighter than you were." Birdman: "Well, that's because I ain't been tanning." Me: "I can see that. As far as your basketball play at a lighter weight, do you feel more spring in your step? Do you feel more active, able to play longer, harder?" Birdman: "It's 'cause of the aerodynamics, man. I cut my beard off." Me: "That's it? OK." Birdman: "I'm still 245, man." Me: "Erik said you were lighter, though." Birdman: "I just look that. I'm leaner." Me: "Is it a body fat thing?" Birdman: "What? You calling me fat?" South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Jason Lieser: Josh McRoberts (toe) is out tomorrow vs ORL; Chris Andersen (calf/foot) is healthy enough to play. Twitter @PBPjasonlieser
Jason Lieser: Chris Andersen (36) believes he has at least 3 seasons left. Chris Andersen: “I was told a long time ago that even though I’m called Birdman, I can’t jump forever." Twitter @PBPjasonlieser
Q: You moved to Miami and plan to live here long term. Why is this home for him now? Chris Andersen: “Besides the organization and winning a championship here, it’s the fans and the way they embraced me when I got here from Denver and the way they continue to support me. It was a pretty simple decision. Basketball is a business. Our future after basketball is still business. What other place to create some business than a place where you’ve won a championship and with the organization and the Heat Nation and the way the city is? I’m not going anywhere.” Palm Beach Post
