Anunoby (abdomen) will be active for Sunday's Game 2 against the Warriors but head coach Nick Nurse said he will not play, Blake Murphy of The Athletic reports. Anunoby has lost a lot of weight and will likely need some time to get his conditioning in order, but the swingman is still technically available off the bench Sunday night. Look for Anunoby to potentially make his postseason debut later in this series.
Anunoby (abdomen) is probable for Sunday's Game 2 against the Warriors. An appendectomy has prevented Anunoby from playing since early April, but it appears he's healthy enough to take part in the Finals. It's not immediately clear what sort of role he'll play, but Anunoby showed versatility on defense during the regular season.
Anunoby (abdomen) won't play in Thursday's Game 1 against the Warriors, Blake Murphy of The Athletic reports. Anunoby hasn't played since early April due to his appendectomy but he's nearing a return. While he won't suit up for Game 1 the team is hopeful that he'll be active for Game 2 on Sunday.
Anunoby (appendectomy) was upgraded to questionable for Thursday's Game 1 against the Warriors, Blake Murphy of The Athletic reports. While Anunoby is officially questionable for the first time since undergoing his appendectomy, the expectation heading into the series has been that he will not be ready until closer to Game 4. It is possible, however, that the Raptors have found new reason to be optimistic about the swingman's chances of playing. The team should have a more concrete update at some point on Thursday.
Coach Nick Nurse said Monday that Anunoby (appendectomy) has been moving well during practice and is likely "10 days away from playing," Eric Koreen of The Athletic reports. If Nurse's projection proves accurate, Anunoby will miss at least the first three games of the Raptors' NBA Finals series with the Warriors before potentially returning for Game 4. Given that Anunoby hasn't played since April 9 following the emergency appendectomy, the Raptors likely won't count on him to fill a high-minute role once he receives the green light to play again.
