OG Anunoby

  • OG Anunoby - F - Toronto Raptors

    Head coach Nick Nurse told the media that OG Anunoby (appendectomy) is still without a timetable to return but said that he's doing more every day.

    Anunoby has missed the entire playoffs after suffering an emergency appendectomy. Now that Game 6 is necessary and there is a greater likelihood that there will be a Game 7, the chances improve that we see Anunoby return to the court to face the Bucks. The Raptors could use another long versatile defender to throw at the Greek Freak and his teammates. Continue to stay tuned to how Anunoby continues to progress on the court to see if he will be able to return this series.

    OG Anunoby (appendectomy) and Patrick McCaw (personal) remain out for Game 4 against the Bucks.

    Anunoby started doing light work about a week ago and could be close to a return for Game 5 or if the series goes any further. It is unclear why McCaw has missed time, but we wish him the best. He isn't in line for rotation minutes in this series anyways, especially with how well Norman Powell is playing.

    OG Anunoby (appendectomy) was able to do some light work in practice on Tuesday and is about a week away from ramping it up to the point where he's close to a return.

    Anunoby returning would provide a huge boost off the bench for the Raptors who have been lacking depth on the wing without him. In the meantime, the Raptors should continue to rely heavily on their starters.

    OG Anunoby traveled with the Raptors for Thursday's Game 6, the first time he had been able to do so since undergoing an appendectomy.

    It's good to see Anunoby on the road with his teammates, but he remains without a timetable for return and has not begun running as of the last update on his condition. His absence has really hurt the Raptors' depth, and it would be a serious lift if the 3-and-D forward were able to return if the Raptors can advance to face the Bucks.

    Nick Nurse said, "I think we're a long, long ways away," when asked about OG Anunoby (appendectomy) returning.

    Anunoby has been able to do some light treadmill work lately and has another doctor's appointment on Tuesday, but he seems far unlikely to return anytime soon. Norman Powell should continue to fill Anunoby's role off the bench in the meantime.

    ESPN is reporting that OG Anunoby (appendectomy) may not return until the Eastern Conference Finals.

    This extends Anunoby's time table a little from the original two weeks after he underwent emergency surgery on Friday. He was the Raptors' first forward off the bench this season when they were at full health and that role should go to Norman Powell for the time being.

    OG Anunoby (appendectomy) is expected to miss at least two weeks as of Friday's update.

    Well, we've at least gotten an updated timetable on Anunoby now, but the Raptors won't be thrilled with this for their sake. This means he will miss at least the first round of the playoffs.

    OG Anunoby underwent an emergency appendectomy on Friday and is without a timeline for a return.

    It hasn't been a good year for Anunoby and this is just a cherry on top. He was diagnosed with acute appendicitis and had to undergo the procedure on short notice. We'll have to see if and when he'll be ready to roll for the postseason.

    OG Anunoby capped his season with nine points, five rebounds, two assists and a 3-pointer in 18 minutes on Tuesday night.

    Anunoby had a rough sophomore season and got off to a slow start after missing time following the passing of his father. He turned it up a bit from February onward, especially with his defensive play, but it wasn’t enough to prevent statistical declines in all the relevant fantasy stats. The 3-and-D prospect delivered 1.0 threes, 0.7 steals and 0.3 blocks per game this year, which isn’t enough to make hay in fantasy considering his low usage. He missed three games with a right wrist sprain and four with concussion-like symptoms. OG ended the year as a top-300 player but delivered top-250 total value across 67 games.

    OG Anunoby returned from a four-game absence to log 16 minutes on Friday night, scoring four points and nabbing one steal on 1-for-4 shooting.

    While it was good to see Anunoby shake off concussion-like symptoms, there wasn't anything very memorable about his performance in this game. The 21-year-old holds high upside in dynasty leagues as a future 3-and-D specialist, but won't factor into many fantasy playoff lineups down the stretch this season.

    OG Anunoby (concussion-like symptoms) will play on Friday vs. the Hornets.

    With the Raptors expected to play all their guys tonight, Anunoby might not get enough time on the court to be useful barring a blowout.

    OG Anunoby (concussion-like symptoms) is probable for Friday's game against the Hornets.

    Anunoby should resume his normal role off the bench, but doesn't carry much value unless someone in front of him is sitting out.

    OG Anunoby (concussion-like symptoms) remains out for Wednesday's game against the Nets.

    Anunoby's absence doesn't move the needle much for fantasy purposes, though Norman Powell and Pascal Siakam would be looking at some extra run.

    OG Anunoby (concussion-like symptoms) will miss his third straight game on Monday against the Magic.

    Anunoby is going through the recovery process after getting hurt against the Bulls last Tuesday. His absence won't mean a ton in fantasy leagues, though Norman Powell is the guy who stands the most to gain.

    OG Anunoby (concussion-like symptoms) has been downgraded to doubtful for Monday's matchup with the Magic.

    Anunoby has missed the last two games but did travel with the team on the weekend so hopefully he's not out much longer. Norman Powell will see some additional run off the bench in the interim.
