Anunoby will not play during Saturday's summer league contest against the Hornets.
Anunoby will presumably be getting the game off for rest purposes. In four summer league games, he's averaged 15.8 points, 6.0 rebounds and 1.3 blocks.
Anunoby posted 22 points (9-17 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four rebounds and a blocked shot across 27 minutes in Wednesday's 85-77 win over the Nuggets in the first round of the Vegas Summer League playoffs.
Anunoby is one of those rare players on Summer League rosters that regularly saw minutes with the first unit of their team last season. With the Raptors doing very little so far in free agency, it appears Anunoby will regain his role at the wing. Anunoby converted over 50 percent of his shots, and despite a cold streak from long range, he put together a decent stat line in the winning effort.
Anunoby had 19 points (6-14 FG, 4-10 3PT, 3-4 FT) and six rebounds in Monday's summer league win over the Thunder.
Anunoby is probably a bit overqualified for summer league, though he has struggled a bit from the floor during the Raptors' first three games. The second-year wing hit four threes on Monday, however, and he added two blocks in 27 minutes.
Through two summer league games, Anunoby has struggled to knock down shots consistently, as he's combined to go just 30.8 percent from the field and 20 percent from three-point land. However, his work on the boards Sunday was a team-high total and it was encouraging for his all-around production looking forward to the rest of the schedule. Considering Anunoby averaged a respectable 20.0 minutes across 74 games during his rookie season, he's likely in line for significant run again during the upcoming campaign despite failing to post the big numbers one would expect against the lesser competition in the summer league.
Anunoby provided nine points (3-11 FG, 1-6 3Pt, 2-3 FT), a team-high seven boards, one steal and one block across 27 minutes during Friday's 90-77 loss to the Pelicans.
Anunoby, a 37.1 percent three-point shooter during his rookie year, couldn't find the bottom of the net Friday. But, he was able to make an impact on the boards (three offensive) and fill out defensive stats. His next chance to improve arrives Sunday against the Timberwolves.
