Phoenix Suns guard Justin Anderson said Thursday he expects his return to the court for the Suns’ matchup with the Orlando Lions on Saturday.
The Phoenix Suns (1-2) are coming off a 107-103 loss to the New Orleans Pelicans on Thursday night, a loss that marked the third time this season the Suns have been swept by the Pelicans.
Anderson said he’s feeling good and that he’s “not feeling tired” but that he wants to continue to make sure he stays healthy.
“I’m feeling great, but I’m not feeling tired,” Anderson said after practice.
“I’m trying to get through every practice.
I’m working on every single day.
I think that’s what I want to do, is make sure I stay healthy and stay on the court and stay in shape, but be ready to go when I’m able to come back.
It’s a lot of pressure right now, but it’s nothing that’s going to stop me.
I know that’s important for me to be able to go out there and play well and get a win.”
Anderson, who has missed the past three games with a bruised left quadriceps, missed last week’s loss to Charlotte after he went to the locker room during a timeout to rest his injured left leg.
He said Thursday that he felt fine after he left the game.
He had previously said he would be ready for the Phoenix-Orlando game.
The Phoenix-Olympia Arena game, which is set for 7 p.m.
(Pacific) on ESPN, is the first of two in Phoenix.
The Phoenix-St. John’s game is scheduled for 7:30 p.ms.
(Central) on Friday.
