Wizards F Alan Anderson has surgery on left ankle again

WASHINGTON (AP) Wizards forward Alan Anderson had a second operation on his left ankle and no timeframe for his return has been determined.

The team announced the latest surgery Tuesday.

Anderson initially had surgery in May to remove bone spurs from his left ankle. But he still was in pain from a fragment, so that was removed in the second procedure.

The Wizards said Anderson will start the rehab process immediately.

He signed with Washington in July after spending last season with the Brooklyn Nets, averaging 7.4 points, 2.8 rebounds and 1.1 assists, while making 34.8 percent of his 3-point attempts.
