Anderson could be out for up to two months after undergoing surgery on his ankle, according to GM Brady Rawlings.
ANALYSIS
Anderson had picked up this injury in Round 3 against West Coast Eagles and will be another major absence for a struggling 'Roos club. He'll hope to return by June at the latest, and will be worth keeping track of when he returns after a dominant showing with 27 disposals and 14 tackles in Round 2 against Gold Coast.

Departs with ankle complaint

Anderson was pushed to the bench in the third term of Friday's match versus Western due to an ankle injury, Mitch Cleary of the AFL's official site reports.
ANALYSIS
Anderson's injury is a tough one to swallow after the midfielder displayed dominance in his first game of the season, racking up 27 disposals and 14 tackles to finish off last round north of 125 fantasy points. He managed to tally another 60 on Friday before his departure and his status will certainly be one to monitor ahead of Round 4.
Dominates in first match

Anderson logged 27 disposals (10 kicks, 17 handballs), made three marks and completed 14 tackles during Saturday's 98-39 loss to Gold Coast.
ANALYSIS
Anderson returned from a calf injury for Round 2 and was by far the best player from a 'Roos team that were again beaten by a wide margin. After recording 21 disposals per match under similar circumstances in 2020, Anderson may be the only consistent fantasy option from this team.

Anderson (calf) has not been included in the Roos' lineup for Saturday's Community Series contest versus Hawthorn.
ANALYSIS
Anderson should be ready for the start of the regular season but will apparently require the extra downtime to get right ahead of it. As a result, he will sit out the clash Saturday, leaving a younger North Melbourne squad to take on the Hawks.
