Anunoby (personal) will not play in Saturday's game against the Grizzlies, Josh Lewenberg of TSN.ca reports. There have been no additional details reported regarding Anunoby's absence from the team, so it's unclear exactly when the second-year player is going to be back. Saturday will be Anunoby's third straight absence.
Anunoby (personal) has been ruled out for Thursday's game against the Suns, Ryan Wolstat of the Toronto Sun reports. This will be Anunoby's second straight absence due to personal reasons, and there hasn't been any indication of how long he will be out. With Kawhi Leonard (rest) also out Thursday, the Raptors will be fairly light on wing depth, which likely means extended minutes for Normal Powell as a starter against Phoenix.
Anunoby will not play in Wednesday's game against the Celtics due to personal reasons, Blake Murphy of The Athletic reports. The specifics of Anunoby's absence aren't known at this time, but the second-year swingman is currently away from the team. With Anunoby out, the Raptors will likely lean on Norman Powell for additional minutes on the wing Wednesday.
Anunoby scored 21 points (9-14 FG, 3-7 3Pt) while adding eight rebounds and a block in 22 minutes during Friday's 126-110 win over the Cavaliers. The Raptors were missing four key contributors for this one, but Anunoby stepped up by tying his career high in scoring, although he likely would have shattered the mark if not for foul trouble. While Danny Green (knee) and Serge Ibaka (knee) might return Saturday, Kawhi Leonard (rest) will sit, so there should be plenty of opportunity again for Anunoby to make an impact.
Anunoby is in the starting lineup for Friday's game against the Cavaliers, Blake Murphy of The Athletic reports. With the Raptors battling through some major injury problems, Anunoby will enter the starting lineup. He's averaging 5.9 points along with 3.1 rebounds over 18.6 minutes in his previous 10 games but should be in store for an uptick in minutes against the Cavs. Anunoby starts alongside Fred VanVleet, Delon Wright, Kawhi Leonard and Pascal Siakam.
