Broken finger will not ground Birdman


Chris Anderson was not his usual self against Houston Monday night, meaning no blocks were sent into the third row. In fact, he had no blocks at all and played just 16 minutes.

The reason might be the broken ring finger on his right hand (as reported in the Denver Post), which happened in Saturday night’s game. Or it could be the ongoing ankle issues he has. Or the ongoing knee issues he has.

None of these are expected to keep Anderson out of the lineup. But it may mean his spectacular block percentage will drop a little.
