The San Antonio Spurs have recalled forward Kyle Anderson from the team’s D-League Affiliate, the Austin Spurs, according to the team’s official site.
Anderson was sent down to the D-League yesterday in order to receive more playing time as the UCLA product has only played in a little over half of San Antonio’s games so far, averaging 0.9 points and 2.4 rebounds to start the season.
Kyle Anderson went right to work after being sent down to the D-League, appearing that night in the Austin Spurs 110-105 victory over the Golden State Warriors’ D-League affiliate, the Santa Cruz Warriors.
The forward played well in Austin, recording an 18 point 11 rebound double-double. Anderson also dished out six assists in his 41 minutes on the floor.

The move to recall Kyle Anderson is not very surprising as the Austin Spurs will not play again until November 30th.
With the San Antonio Spurs slated to play 9 teams with under .500 records in their next 11 games, there is a good chance Anderson will receive some solid playing time.
