Anderson sustained the injury at the Australian Open during his second-round defeat to American Frances Tiafoe.
He claimed victory at the Long Island event which played a key role in kick-starting his 2018 campaign, which saw him reach the final at Wimbledon.
Tiafoe has been added to the field for the tournament which gets underway on Sunday.Fastest Paying Betting Site in Nigeria: Grab your 140% First Time Deposit Bonus Now — www.Sportybet.Com Copyright © 2021 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
