Kyle Anderson will start in place of injured shooting guard Danny Green Tuesday night in the Spurs’ regular-season opener against the Golden State Warrior, coach Gregg Popovich announced.

Green sustained a left quad contusion before training camp and re-aggravated the injury during the Spurs’ intrasquad scrimmage last Tuesday. He is expected to miss up to 10 games.

Anderson has started 19 games over two seasons with the Spurs, including 11 last year. Just one percent of his on-court time came at the 2 position during the 2015-16 season, according to basketball-reference.com.

Popovich hopes Anderson’s unique positional fluidity will work to the Spurs advantage against the Warriors, a team that bends and breaks NBA convention more than any in the league.  

“I’ve played this game for a long time and I feel I can play a lot of different positions,” Anderson said last week. “If the coaches have faith in me, of course, I’m going to have faith in myself.”

Anderson averaged 6.5 points, 3.8 rebounds, 1.7 assists and 1.3 steals in 19.7 minutes during the preseason.

In four games last season against the Warriors, Anderson averaged 4.7 points, 6.7 rebounds, and 1.7 assists in 16 minutes.

Tonight’s game between the Spurs and Warriors tips at 9:30 p.m.
