Stein: Spurs to call up James Anderson
According to ESPN’s Marc Stein, the Spurs will call up Rio Grande Valley Viper James Anderson. The move comes in the wake of Spurs swingman Stephen Jackson fracturing his right pinkie finger during last night’s game against the Los Angeles Clippers. Jackson is expected to miss four to six weeks. Second-year Spurs wing Kawhi Leonard is also unavailable due to tendinitis.
This will be Anderson’s second stint with the Spurs. He was drafted by San Antonio with the 20th pick in the 2010 Draft. After an unsuccessful training camp with the Atlanta Hawks, Anderson signed with the Bakersfield Jam before being traded to RGV.
