[APD] OK to trim Anubias roots?

The beard algae that took over my tank a month ago is slowly 
disappearing, and the plants are growing again.  I have a couple of 
anubias in there that I need to take out and bleach to get the thick 
algae off their leaves.  One of them is easy to remove because it was a 
recent cutting.  It has lots of roots but they are not very long.  The 
other (the plant that I too the cutting from); I tried to pull it up a 
couple of weeks ago and it has a network of fine roots that spread all 
thru the substrate.  Will it hurt the plant if I cut most of those 
roots?  Seems like it would be the same as planting a cutting, except 
this will have a head start because I'm not going to cut *all* the roots.

Thanks, regards,
