Anunoby provided seven points (3-6 FG, 1-3 3Pt), five rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block across 33 minutes before getting ejected late in the fourth quarter of Monday's 101-92 win over the Jazz. Anunoby and Jazz center Rudy Gobert were both sent to the locker room with 40 seconds remaining after the two were involved in an altercation. The third-year forward also departed at one point in the contest due to an apparent ankle issue, but neither than injury nor the ejection cost him much playing time. The potential returns of Marc Gasol (hamstring) and Fred VanVleet (shoulder) in the Raptors' next game Saturday versus the Pistons may have a bigger impact on Anunoby's minutes, however.
Anunoby posted 12 points (4-7 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 2-4 FT), two rebounds and a steal across 39 minutes Sunday in the Raptors' 118-113 win over the Kings. Anunoby saw no notable downturn in playing time while Toronto returned Marc Gasol (hamstring) to the rotation, but the forward saw his trend of stat-sheet-stuffing performances come to a halt. This sort of line is probably more indicative of what to expect from Anunoby moving forward, as the 16.8 points per game he averaged over the prior five games were propped up by unsustainable 56.4 percent and 50 percent shooting from the field and 3-point range, respectively. He also averaged 4.0 steals per game during that stretch, which is well above his season-long rate (1.4).
Anunoby finished with 32 points (12-16 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 5-5 FT), seven rebounds, seven steals and three assists in 40 minutes during Sunday's 133-118 loss to the Nuggets. Anunoby racked up career-best numbers in both scoring and steals, continuing what has been a tremendous run of games. Over the past two weeks, Anunoby has been the third-ranked player, thanks primarily to his 3.4 steals per game. He is also shooting the ball at an unsustainable 55.8 percent from the field while turning the ball over only 1.2 times. A lot of what he is doing is likely to regress at some point but until then, he should be rostered in all formats.
Anunoby posted 16 points (5-12 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 4-5 FT), nine rebounds, six steals and three assists in 40 minutes during Friday's 99-96 loss to the Hornets. Anunoby was called upon more than usual with Serge Ibaka (knee) sidelined. He stepped up, nearly posting a double-double while collecting a career-high six steals. Anunoby has put together a nice eight-game stretch, averaging 12.0 points on 54.5 percent shooting, plus 5.6 rebounds, 2.6 steals and 1.8 assists in 32.8 minutes.
Anunoby scored 12 points (5-9 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT) while adding five rebounds, four blocks, an assist and a steal in 39 minutes during Friday's 118-101 win over the Suns. The Raptors had a balanced attack going Friday, as seven different players scored in double digits, so Anunoby made his mark on the defensive end by tying his season high in rejections. He remains a frustratingly inconsistent player -- he's scored anywhere from 25 to zero points through seven games in February -- but the potential is there for some very impressive fantasy production if he can put everything together.
