    OG Anunoby scored 18 points on 6-for-13 shooting on Friday to go with six rebounds, four 3-pointers and one assist in a win over Brooklyn.

    Anunoby has put together back-to-back solid performances as the preseason winds down, further solidifying his position as a late-round pick with upside in fantasy drafts.

    With the Raptors' usual leading scorers resting on Sunday, OG Anunoby delivered 15 points on 5-of-9 shooting, with four assists and two steals.

    Anunoby did a decent job as the lead dog for the Raptors, as Pascal Siakim, Kyle Lowry, Marc Gasol, Fred VanVleet, and Serge Ibaka all took a seat on Sunday. It is nice to see Anunoby deliver a productive line over his 27 minutes, and you should keep him in mind towards the end of your draft.

    OG Anunoby had just seven points, three rebounds, two assists, a steal and a triple in 21 minutes of action against the Rockets on Tuesday morning.

    We still like Anunoby as a late-round flier but expectations should be lowered as the Raptors will continue to use him as a complementary piece in their offense. He shot 3-of-5 tonight and if he can make his threes on good percentages he could help his fantasy value, while defensive numbers should also improve with more minutes.

    The Raptors have exercised their 2020-21 option on OG Anunoby.

    This is the furthest thing from a surprise and Anunoby is expected to return to a major role after Kawhi Leonard's arrival pushed him to the back burner for a year. OG's growing in popularity as a late-round flier in fantasy leagues and could be a nice little 3-and-D guy for the end of your bench.

    Coach Nick Nurse intends to put OG Anunoby "back out there in a primary role."

    With Kawhi Leonard vacating the starting small forward spot, Anunoby is the leading candidate to take the role. Before the arrival of Leonard, Anunoby started 62 games in his rookie season. Last season he started 6 out of 67 games, and missed the entire playoffs due to an emergency appendectomy. He averaged 7.0 points, 2.9 rebounds, 0.7 assists, 0.7 steals and 0.3 blocks over 20.2 minutes per game, while shooting 45.3 percent from the floor, 33.2 percent from 3-point range and 58.1 percent from the free-throw line. He can be picked up as a late round flier in drafts.

    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.
