Ryan Anderson's minutes with the Phoenix Suns are down, but he's attempting to remain positive.

Anderson was acquired by the Suns from the Houston Rockets late in the offseason.

“When I was first starting off like some of these guys,” Anderson said, “I was ready when my name was called, and I performed and that’s what led to me getting more minutes and I was eventually starting. Those are moments that coaches really notice. If I can bring that out of a guy, I can help work after practice, that’s more important than me playing 10 minutes in a game.”

Anderson is averaging just 4.5 points per game this season.

“I feel good. I’m working hard in practice trying to get the guys better. We have a lot of young talent on this team and guys that need more experience. The more time they get on the court, the better they’re going to be.”
