OG Anunoby (right eye contusion) is expected to play in Saturday's matchup vs. the Mavericks.
He missed Wednesday's game vs. the Blazers and the Raps still managed come out with the win. It's great news that he'll be back on the court tonight and his fantasy owners should be pleased to be getting back what is currently a top-35 guy. Fire him up in all lineups, sit back and relax.

Nick Nurse anticipates that OG Anunoby (right eye contusion) will be back on the court for Saturday contest against the Mavericks.
Anunoby was never expected to be sidelined long, and we will await an official word to confirm this. Sharp-shooter Malcolm Miller is set to start in his place on Wednesday against the Blazers and makes for an intirguing DFS play.

OG Anunoby (right eye contusion) has been ruled out of Wednesday's game against the Blazers.
Rondae Hollis-Jefferson picked up the bulk of the extra work left over in Anunoby's absence on Wednesday with nine points, nine rebounds, three steals and a block in 29 minutes. RHJ could find himself in the starting lineup and is worth a look as a streaming option.

OG Anunoby scored zero points with an assist before exiting Monday's game early with an eye injury.
He was inadvertently poked in the eye by Kawhi Leonard and had to leave due to some bleeding. It's unclear how much time he'll miss, but we saw Rondae Hollis-Jefferson (29 minutes, nine points, nine rebounds, one assist, three steals and a block) pick up the bulk of the minutes. He's worth a short-term stream and Anunoby will see an eye doctor on Tuesday to determine the severity of the injury.

OG Anunoby was accidentally poked in the right eye by Kawhi Leonard and will not return to Monday's game.
Anunoby's night ends with just an assist after playing for two minutes. While an eye poke is often minor, it sounded like this could've potentially caused some damage. Keep an eye out for updates on this one.

OG Anunoby had a subdued performance vs. the Lakers on Sunday, tallying just seven points (2-of-6 shooting)with three rebounds, one trey and one steal.
This was a downer, considering Anunoby was coming off a 21-point explosion in his last game. Still, this all just part of season-long variance, so there's no reason to worry here. It's a bit of regression from his hot start, but his situation in TOR leads to a stable and high-ish fantasy floor.

OG Anunoby took advantage of the extra usage in the wake of the Kyle Lowry injury, posting 21 points (7-for-13 shooting), seven rebounds, five triples, four assists, one steal and one block across 30 minutes as the Raptors beat the Pelicans.
The 21 points are a season-high for Anunoby, who was third on the team in shot attempts. Could this be a sign of things to come for Anunoby without Lowry? It's quite possible which means the breakout season is about to get even better. If Lowry misses significant time – buckle up!

The OG Anunoby breakout season continued on Wednesday, as the Raptors forward chipped in 18 points (7-of-10 shooting), six rebounds, five assists (career-high), three treys and three blocks.
Anunoby has risen to a whole new level this season and no predicted this much of a leap. He's not likely sustaining this hot run for much longer but will land firmly on a well-established high floor.

OG Anunoby had another solid game on Wednesday with 13 points (6-of-10 shooting), eight rebounds, two assists and a 3-pointer in 37 minutes.
Anunoby gets most of his buckets as threes or dunks when he cuts through the paint, which is a pretty great base for production. The Raptors are leaning on him defensively and he should be scooped up in all 12-team leagues. It looks like he's taken at least some of the steps that were needed to get him on the fantasy radar.

OG Anunoby scored 12 points on 5-of-11 shooting to go with eight boards, two assists, two blocks, five steals and two triples on Monday.
Anunoby was a beast tonight, scoring in double-digits for the third time in four games. He's a must-add in every format and has been averaging 33 minutes a game this year. The defensive numbers give him a high floor to work with and he's been hot shooting the ball lately. Sprint to pick him up if he's available.

OG Anunoby was excellent in Saturday's 108-84 win over the Bulls, notching 17 points on 7-of-11 shooting with strong peripheral contributions.
Anunoby gave hope to his cult followers in fantasy tonight as he stuffed the stat sheet with six boards, three treys, two dimes, one steal and four blocks. He's looked good so far this season. and is a breakout candidate given the Raps' new-look roster.

O.G. Anunoby provided 11 points on 5-of-12 shooting with seven boards, one triple and two blocks in Tuesday's OT win over the Pelicans.
Anunoby started his 2019-20 campaign on the right foot with this line. It's a serviceable end-of-bench kind of value you could sit on in standard leagues, but Anunoby will need to show that he can deliver like this on a consistent basis to warrant a higher ownership percentage in all platforms.

Fred VanVleet and OG Anunoby will join Kyle Lowry, Pascal Siakam and Marc Gasol in the starting unit for Tuesday's season-opening game against the Pelicans.
VanVleet, who was in line for mnites either way, gets a boost in value now that he's the confirmed starter for the Raptors. Norman Powell could still push for 20+ minutes as the first guard/wing off the bench.

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.
October 13, 2019, 8:52 pmOG AnunobySF, Toronto Raptors
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.
