Per Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel, Ryan Anderson (sprained right ankle) has been ruled out of Thursday night’s matchup with the Detroit Pistons. Both Dwight Howard and Jameer Nelson will be game-time decisions.
Ryan Anderson will not play tonight (ankle). Dwight Howard (back) & Jameer Nelson (sore left calf) = game-time decisions.
This could force the Stan Van Gundy to use a starting lineup featuring Earl Clark, Glen Davis and Chris Duhon. Van Gundy could also shift Hedo Turkoglu to the Four.
