Anunoby Not Expected to Return Any Time Soon, Ruled Out for Series

If you are a Raptors fan who has almost completely forgotten about OG Anunoby, I don’t blame you.

Yet to suit up in the Raptors postseason run, the return of OG remains highly doubtful, as the Raptors will have to continue forward without his services. Head coach Nick Nurse told reporters on Wednesday that there is still no timetable for his return.

After a very untimely and unfortunate appendectomy on the eve of the playoffs, it was estimated that Anunoby would miss 4-6 weeks and return for the Eastern Conference finals. The 21-year old is an important part of the team, as a key player off of the bench of one of the Raptors’ most versatile defenders.

While Anunoby is not expected back anytime soon, it does sound as though some progress is being made, and at this point all that fans can hope for is that he returns healthy next season.

“He is being more active every day,” Nurse said. He’s moving pretty good, he’s shooting, etc., but still a ways away from being able to take hits and contact in the areas that he needs to test out, I guess.”

In Anunoby’s absence, Norman Powell has emerged as the main beneficiary, coming on strong as of late, averaging 8.1 points in 17.3 minutes throughout the postseason thus far. His defense, energy, and scoring punch off of the bench has been instrumental in the Raptors overturning their 0-2 series deficit.
