    Ryan Anderson out indefinitely with herniated disk

    The Pelicans announced Tuesday that forward Ryan Anderson is out indefinitely after suffering a herniated disk. Anderson suffered the injury last Friday after a scary collision with Celtics forward Gerald Wallace. Anderson laid motionless on the court for several minutes before being immobilized and taken off court on a stretcher.

    He stayed in Boston for several days recovering at a local hospital. The injury is a crushing blow to the Pelicans' playoff hopes, as they had just gotten their full squad back. Anderson missed time coming into the season, then came back just as Anthony Davis went down.

    The good news is that the injury wasn't more severe after the scary way he went down but this could take a huge chunk out of Anderson's season and the Pelicans' hope for a run.

    Anderson, 25, is averaging 19.8 points and 6.5 rebounds this season for the Pelicans.

    While it's a sad story and I hope he comes back, I find it ironic that he runs into "Crash" and gets this injury. I'm surprised Gerald didn't get stabbed w/ a Trident or something.
    "It's just unfortunate that we've been penalized so much this year and nothing has happened to the Pistons, the Palace or the city of Detroit," he said. "It's almost like it's always our fault. The league knows it. They should be ashamed of themselves to let the security be as lax as it is around here."

    The Pelicans have been extremely unlucky with injuries this season. Poor Ryan. He has had a very tough year
