April 5, 2002

BOSTON (AP) -- Boston Celtics starting point guard Kenny Anderson was activated from the injured list before Friday night's game against the Los Angeles Lakers.

Anderson missed five games after spraining his left ankle March 24.

The team put rookie guard Joseph Forte back on the injured list to make room for Anderson. Forte was listed with a left ankle sprain.

Anderson has started all 69 games in which he's played, averaging 9.8 points and 5.3 assists for the Celtics, who were No. 3 in the Eastern Conference heading into the weekend.

Forte has played in eight games. He was placed on the injured list on Feb. 19 with an ankle sprain.

Anderson is a decent floor leader. Good guy.

He makes the Celtics better somehow too. Sure, it's Pierce and Walker that get most the credit, but Anderson is what Nash is to us. He's the teams floor leader as you mention.
