OG Anunoby Ruled Out For Tonight as Raptors’ Injury Count Mounts

The Toronto Raptors aren’t making things easier for themselves.

Sure, the Raptors have encounter more bright spots than not, the injury count continues to move in the wrong direction. Already playing without All-Star Kyle Lowry, Serge Ibaka, and key rotational piece Patrick McCaw, the Raptors will take on the Portland Trailblazers tonight without the services of OG Anunoby who suffered an eye contusion in the first quarter of the Raptors-Los Angeles Clippers matchup.

The injury occurred when a Kawhi Leonard inadvertent swipe poked Anunoby in the eye, forcing the young Raptor to lose both contacts and bleed following the accidental contact. Anunoby was seen with a bandage over his eye following the game and looked to be wearing protective sunglasses as the team prepared to head to Portland.

This injury is yet another tough loss for the Raptors as Anunoby has been enjoying a breakout season, averaging 11.7 points and 5.6 rebounds per game, while looking very much like one of the elite perimeter defenders in the league in the early going. The Raptors will rely on Rondae Hollis-Jefferson to fill Anunoby’s minutes, but the additional injury may force head coach Nick Nurse to go deeper into his bench than he may desire to.

OG is expected to see a specialist, after which the Raptors will be able to provide a more realistic timetable on Anunoby’s return.
