Content: Corey Andersons standard refrain for every question thrown at him is, Its one of those things. Long injury-enforced lay-off? Its one of those things. Playing as a specialist batsman? Its one of those things. It may seem he is playing down an injury that has kept him out of competitive cricket for more than six months, but Anderson is aware he needs to ease himself into the grind ahead of a packed calendar where New Zealand are scheduled to play 24 matches from now until March next year.The New Zealand allrounder has been unlucky with injuries since he suffered a fractured finger during the IPL last year. That was followed by a stress-related back injury that first cut his England tour short in June last year. The injury recurred at the end of the World T20 in India, and ruled him out of tours to Zimbabwe and South Africa. He admitted coping with the recurrence of the injury was reasonably tough, but the break was necessary.Its one of those things... you have a decent chunk out [with injury] and you dont really want to sit out again. But I had to do it. Its part of the game, you have injuries, he said. Doing that gives you time to reflect on things and see where you can get better. Ive been basically working to get my fitness and strength up and not have a date in mind. Its just exciting to be back with the group and back in India.New Zealands team management has tried to ensure there were no half measures during the course of Andersons recovery. We started right back from the base level and we just built him up there slow, Chris Donaldson, the teams strength and conditioning coach, told ESPNcricinfo. We have taken time with him. This started four-five months ago and he has worked incredibly hard. He has worked in conjunction with the high performance group [staff] . There has been overall work in progress and building him. He has really been brilliant to come back to this level.While workload-management is the thinking behind New Zealand playing him as a pure batsman in the ODIs against India, Anderson had a bowl during the teams net at the HPCA Stadium in Dharamsala and even appeared to operate at full tilt towards the end of the session. Anderson, however, made it clear he was in no hurry to resume bowling. I am slowly working on my bowling in the background. I think thats one of those things that… no, there is no timeframe, he said. [It is] very similar to what the injury was in the first place. [It is about] just letting it take its time and when its ready, its ready. It is pointless pushing myself with such a big summer in front of us.I know its India, Id love to be doing everything. I dont know if there is enough time on this tour potentially, but its just one of those things that I am focusing on my batting. That will be my main job.Anderson is expected to slot into the middle order with Luke Ronchi and James Neesham for company. Their job description, according to him, involved shifting seamlessly between consolidation and attack. In the middle order you have got to be able to adapt. If you lose early wickets, you are going to be able to try and take your team deep, Anderson said. If you get in with not many overs left, then you are going to have to start going from ball one. Its an adaptable position and I have obviously been preparing for that.We have got a lot of guys in the team who can do a lot of things, which is great - some of the guys in the top order can also bowl.

NEW YORK -- The New York Knicks spent $72 million to make Joakim Noah the anchor of their defense.On Monday, they sat him down and turned around a game.Carmelo Anthony and Kristaps Porzingis each scored 24 points, and the Knicks rolled after a halftime lineup change and beat the short-handed Dallas Mavericks 93-77.The Knicks benched Noah, their big free-agent signing, starting guard Justin Holiday and moving Porzingis to center in a small lineup. They responded by scoring 31 points in the third quarter after managing just 36 in an ugly first half.Second half was really good. Coach made the decision to play small, Noah said. I didnt get to play, everybody wants to play, but its good that we won. We found a way. It was much-needed.Anthony scored 17 in the third quarter and 20 in the second half after shooting 1 for 6 in the first half. Porzingis finished with 11 rebounds, though coach Jeff Hornacek doesnt think his move to starting center is going to be permanent.Just because it was good in the second half doesnt mean were going to change it, Hornacek said.Harrison Barnes scored 20 points and J.J. Barea had 17 for the Mavericks, who are still without Dirk Nowitzki and Deron Williams.The remaining lineup was good enough to take a 39-36 halftime lead but got run off the floor once the Knicks returned with a different look.This is where everybody has got to be totally together, help each other out, really focus on doing the little things at a high level, Mavs coach Rick Carlisle said. I thought the first half we did that. In the second half we had breakdowns.Anthony made a 3-pointer to open the half and later had six straight points in the midst of the Knicks 19-6 run that Holiday capped with a 3-pointer that made it 55-45. New York outscored Dallas 31-12 in the period as the Mavs shot 5 for 20, and it was 67-51 headed to the fourth.Porzingis and Anthony made consecutive 3-pointers that pushed it to 82-64 midway through the period and soon both were on the bench for goood.ddddddddddddoah, a defensive-minded center who battled injuries in his final season in Chicago, grabbed six rebounds in 16 scoreless minutes. He didnt play in the second half, while Holiday finished with 16 points.TIP-INSMavericks: Dallas had won five straight and 24 of the last 29 meetings. ... Barnes had scored 25 or more in a career-best three straight games.Knicks: The Knicks snapped a two-game losing streak. ... New York won for the first time in five games this season when scoring fewer than 100 points.DIRK WORKSNowitzki had a lengthy pregame workout on the court, but by then the Mavs had already determined that he would miss his fourth straight game with a sore right Achilles.I think hes really close. Hes feeling a lot better and we just dont want to rush anything, owner Mark Cuban said. Theres no reason to rush anything with him.TAKE TIMEDallas was twice called for technical fouls in the fourth quarter for calling timeout when it had no timeouts remaining.HELPING HANDHornacek asked Carlisle if Nowitzki would work out with Porzingis in September. They couldnt get anything scheduled but both sides hope they can eventually.Dirks a giver, he would love to see every international guy have the same opportunities hes had, Carlisle said. Its something that didnt work out because I think at the time in September Dirks travel schedule and Kristaps health situation didnt match up, but maybe sometime in the future. I know that Dirk would look forward to spending time with him and vice versa.UP NEXTMavericks: Visit Boston on Wednesday to finish four-game, coast-to-coast road trip that began at the Los Angeles Lakers. Dallas has won seven straight against the Celtics.Knicks: Host Detroit on Wednesday. The Pistons beat the Knicks 102-89 earlier this season.---This story has been corrected to show that Nowitzki has missed four straight games.
