    OG Anunoby (appendectomy) will be available to play in Sunday's Game 2, though he is not expected to receive any minutes.

    Anunoby has missed the entire postseason run after undergoing the procedure on the eve of the playoffs and dealing with complications from an infection. He has lost significant weight, and if he does get into the mix against Golden State it figures to come later in the series.

    OG Anunoby (appendectomy) is probable to play in Sunday's game vs. the Warriors.

    If he does indeed give it a go, Anunoby should be able to provide the Raptors with some depth on the wing. That said, with Kawhi Leonard playing so well, don't expect to see a lot of minutes scooped onto Anunoby's plate in his first game back.

    OG Anunoby (appendectomy) will not play in Thursday’s Game 1 vs. the Warriors.

    Anunoby has been recovering from an emergency appendectomy that occured on the eve of the playoffs. The team told the media that he would have a chance of returning at a date around Game 4 of the Finals. However, we got word on Wednesday that Anunoby was questionable for Game 1. This could have been gamesmanship by the Raptors organization as they never expected him to suit up in Game 1 but wanted to give the Warriors more difficulty in their preparation. With Anunoby ruled out, expect the Raptors to continue to lean on their eight man rotation with only Serge Ibaka, Fred VanVleet and Norman Powell coming off the bench. There is also a chance that former Warrior Patrick McCaw could see some minutes as they face his former team even though he missed the ECF for personal reasons.

    OG Anunoby (appendectomy) is questionable for Game 1 of the NBA Finals on Thursday vs. the Warriors.

    This news comes as a bit of surprise as the team announced that he could be back for Game 4. However, it looks like Anunoby has a chance to return to action even before that estimated timetable. His return would give the Raptors another wing defender to take on the dynamic perimeter threats that the Warriors have. Anunoby may come back to the court at the same time as Kevin Durant because the Raptors will need all the warm bodies that they can find to try and limit one of the best scorers the league has ever seen. Continue to follow his recovery to see when he will be available to take the court.

    The Raptors think OG Anunoby (appendectomy) could return in 10 days.

    10 days would give Anunoby a shot at returning for Game 4. He has started taking contact and doing work on the court. Anunoby isn't a big difference maker at this point in his career, but the Raptors would welcome the versatile, long wing back into their rotation, especially given their matchup.

    The Raptors are expressing optimism that OG Anunoby will be able to see the floor for their NBA Finals matchup with the Golden State Warriors.

    Anunoby's size and defensive versatility could make for a very valuable weapon against the Warriors' small-ball lineups. That being said, he has been out for nearly a month and a half, and the Raptors' eight man rotation has hit its stride in the crux of this playoff run. It remains to be seen if he will make it back, but in the event that he can, there is no guarantee that he will be able to crack meaningful minutes in Toronto's tight rotation.

    OG Anunoby was spotted on the court before Saturday's Game 6, where he was taking jumpers and working on dribbling and footwork drills.

    Anunoby still has no timetable to return but he is trending in the right direction. Should the Raptors make the Finals the general expectation is that Anunoby would at least be an option at some point, but there's not much to act on until we get a more concrete update from the team.

    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.
