Patrick McCaw (sprained right thumb) went through some pregame warmups ahead of Saturday’s Game 1 and is nearing a return.
McCaw was ruled out for three weeks at the very end of March, so he may be able to return for the tail end of the first round. The Raptors could certainly use another lengthy perimeter defender with OG Anunoby set to miss two, possibly even four weeks as the result of an emergency appendectomy, though McCaw wouldn’t necessarily factor into the power forward spot that Anunoby is vacating.
