Toronto Raptors Quietly Expecting Anunoby to Return in the Finals

It’s going to be all hands on deck come the NBA Finals.

While the Golden State Warriors have a ton of questions regarding the health of a couple of their superstars, the Toronto Raptors are quietly optimistic about a potential return of forward OG Anunoby. The second year forward has been out all playoffs after undergoing an emergency appendectomy.

For the first time since his injury, Anunoby participated in some light practice prior to Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Finals. While he is ruled out for the first two games of the Finals, Anunoby may make his return later in the series. In fact, according to Head Coach Nick Nurse, Anunoby is healed from the surgery and is expected back in the next 10 days.

The 21-year old will play a crucial role for the Raptors if he is to return for the Finals as it would give Nick Nurse an additional versatile wing defender who can guard multiple position. It can also allow the Raptors to give guys like Pascal Siakam and Kawhi Leonard a little bit more rest as opposed to running both players into the ground.

Anunoby averaged seven points per game this season while shooting 45.3-percent from the field.
