Raptors’ OG Anunoby undergoes emergency appendectomy, will reportedly miss at least two weeks
OG Anunoby has had a rough year. His father died shortly before the season, and the Raptors forward missed several games throughout the year for personal reasons.
And now this.
Shams Charania of The Athletic:
That timeline means Anunoby will probably miss Toronto’s entire first-round series against the Magic.
Fortunately for the Raptors, they should still beat Orlando, anyway. Between Kawhi Leonard, Pascal Siakam, Danny Green, Serge Ibaka and Norman Powell, Toronto has plenty of players who can pick up the slack at both forward positions.
Anunoby’s versatile defense will be more important in an expected second-round series against the 76ers. Hopefully, he’s healthy by then.
