Raptors' OG Anunoby: Leads team once again

Anunoby finished with 26 points (8-18 FG, 4-9 3PT, 6-9 FT), five rebounds, four assists, one steal and one block in a 104-101 loss to Philadelphia on Wednesday. Anunoby now has back-to-back 26-point performances on a combined 18-for-32 shooting from the field with eight threes. The fifth-year forward has been stellar in rookie Scottie Barnes' absence. Toronto will need him to stay consistent to fight their way back into the series.

Raptors' OG Anunoby: Leads team in loss

Anunoby put up 26 points (10-14 FG, 4-7 3PT, 2-2 FT), three assists, one rebound and one steal in Monday's 112-97 loss to Philadelphia. Anunoby recorded his second straight game of 20-plus points on at least 60.0 percent shooting from the field. With rookie Scottie Barnes' (ankle) status in question for Game 3, the Raptors will need Anunoby to remain aggressive if they want to turn the series around.

Raptors' OG Anunoby: Pops for 20 in loss

Anunoby chipped in 20 points (9-15 FG, 2-5 3Pt), seven rebounds and two assists across 32 minutes during Saturday's 131-111 loss to the 76ers. The fifth-year forward has trouble staying healthy down the stretch, but Anunoby looked good to begin the Raptors' postseason run, scoring 20 or more points for just the second time in his last seven games. With a number of other Toronto players picking up injuries in Game 1, the team will need Anunoby to stay productive if they're going to rally against the Sixers.

Raptors' OG Anunoby: Still feeling sore

Raptors head coach Nick Nurse said Wednesday that Anunoby (thigh) is still feeling sore after returning to action for the regular-season finale Sunday, Josh Lewenberg of TSN.ca reports. Anunoby missed four straight games before playing 25 minutes during the finale. While it's obviously encouraging to see him return to action,...

Raptors' OG Anunoby: Modest numbers in return

Anunoby (thigh) tallied eight points (3-9 FG, 0-5 3Pt, 2-2 FT), nine rebounds, three assists and one steal across 25 minutes Sunday in the Raptors' 105-94 loss to the Knicks. The Raptors didn't have much at stake in Sunday's regular-season finale, but Anunoby's healthy return from a four-game absence has to be one of the more important takeaways as Toronto prepares for a first-round playoff matchup with the fourth-seeded 76ers. With Anunoby back in action, the Raptors will enter the postseason fully healthy, as the only key player that sat out Sunday was Fred VanVleet, who missed his third straight game for "right knee management" in what was more than likely a rest-related absence. Anunoby didn't see his usual level of playing time Sunday, but he should be ready to handle a 30-plus-minute workload when the 76ers and Raptors take the floor for Game 1 on Saturday.

Raptors' OG Anunoby: Expected to see limited action

Anunoby (thigh) is expected to play limited minutes in Sunday's regular-season finale against the Knicks, Blake Murphy of The Athletic reports. This comes straight from the mouth of coach Nick Nurse, who isn't exactly known for his transparency, so it's possible Anunoby could play a full complement of minutes or even sit out altogether in what's ultimately a meaningless game for both teams. Still, it looks as though the Raptors would prefer to get Anunoby back on the floor before the postseason begins next weekend. The versatile wing missed the last four games with a bruised right quad.

Raptors' OG Anunoby: Questionable Sunday

Anunoby (thigh) is listed as questionable for Sunday's regular-season finale versus the Knicks, Blake Murphy of The Athletic reports. Anunoby continues to recover from a bruised right quad. Sunday will be his last chance to get some game-action before the playoffs commence. Either way, the versatile forward will presumably be ready for the start of the postseason.

Raptors' OG Anunoby: On course to sit again Thursday

Anunoby (thigh) has been downgraded to doubtful for Thursday's game against the 76ers. Anunoby was initially listed as questionable, but his bruised right thigh looks like it will cause him to miss a third consecutive contest. If he does sit Thursday, he'll have only two more opportunities to play before the postseason.

Raptors' OG Anunoby: Out Thursday and Friday

Anunoby (thigh) will miss at least the Raptors' next two games, Michael Grange of SportsNet reports. The versatile forward will miss Thursday's game against Philly and Friday's game against Houston as he continues to deal with what's apparently a severely bruised right quad. The hope is that he can get back on the floor for Sunday's regular-season finale against the Knicks, but at this stage that's no guarantee. Either way, Anunoby figures to be back healthy for the start of the postseason.

Anunoby (thigh) is questionable for Thursday's game against the 76ers. Anunoby will have a chance to return Thursday after missing each of the last two games with a thigh injury. If he remains out, Thaddeus Young and Khem Birch should see additional run.

Raptors' OG Anunoby: Questionable Tuesday

Anunoby (thigh) is questionable for Tuesday's contest, Blake Murphy of The Athletic reports.

Raptors' OG Anunoby: Efficient performance in win

Anunoby accumulated 22 points (9-13 FG, 4-4 3Pt), five rebounds and three assists over 32 minutes during Wednesday's 125-102 win over Minnesota. Anunoby was lights out from three en route to his first 20-plus point outing since Feb. 7. The 2017 first-round pick missed nearly a full month (15 games) due to a finger injury, but since his return (four games), he's averaged 16.5 points, 4.5 rebounds and 2.5 assists in 31.5 minutes per game.

Raptors' OG Anunoby: Sinks four threes in return

Anunoby (finger) posted 14 points (4-11 FG, 4-8 3Pt, 2-2 FT), three assists, two rebounds and one block in 26 minutes during Thursday's 117-104 win over the Cavaliers. A finger injury had kept Anunoby off the court since Feb. 16, but it didn't appear to be much of an issue for him upon his return as he put together a strong shooting performance from long range. Anunoby has had a tough time staying healthy this season, missing 30 of the Raptors' 73 games, but if he can stay in the lineup down the stretch he'll provide a big boost to a team fighting to avoid the play-in tournament and secure a playoff spot.

Raptors' OG Anunoby: Will be game-time call

Anunoby (finger) will be a game-time decision for Thursday's game against the Cavs, Josh Lewenberg of TSN reports. The Raptors issued an updated injury report at 5:30 PM ET, but Anunoby remains questionable, and coach Nick Nurse intimated that the wing will end up being a game-time call. It's been a lengthy layoff for the 2017 first-round pick, who hasn't played since the final game before the All-Star break due to a fractured finger. Given the situation, if he's cleared to play Thursday, his minutes could be limited.

Raptors' OG Anunoby: Will start in return

Anunoby (finger) will start in his return to action Thursday against the Cavaliers, Eric Koreen of The Athletic reports. After missing the Raptors' last 15 games with a fractured finger, Anunoby will make his return to the court and starting lineup. While it's currently uncertain how many minutes the forward will see, he's been averaging roughly 37 minutes per game when healthy.

Raptors' OG Anunoby: Likely out another week

Coach Nick Nurse said Friday that Anunoby (finger) will likely be sidelined at least another week, Michael Grange of Sportsnet.ca reports. Anunoby hasn't taken the court since Feb. 16 and had already been ruled out for Friday's matchup against the Lakers. He'll likely be sidelined for at least three more games, which should continue to lead to increased run for Scottie Barnes, Gary Trent and Yuta Watanabe.

Raptors' OG Anunoby: Out Friday
