Raptors’ OG Anunoby Seeing Finger Specialist on Monday


Toronto Raptors forward OG Anunoby will see a specialist Monday for his injured right ring finger, according to The Athletic’s Eric Koreen.

The injury has forced Anunoby to miss the Raptors’ last two games. The test results will hopefully provide clarity on the nature of the illness and the timeline for recovery.

Missing its presence, Toronto suffered back-to-back blowout losses to the Atlanta Hawks and Charlotte Hornets.

Anunoby has been outstanding for the raps this season, averaging career bests in points (17.5 PPG) and assists (2.6 APG) while hitting his career high in rebounds (5.5 RPG).

All three, Precious Achiuwa, Chris Boucher and Thaddeus Young, have seen more minutes in the 24-year-old’s absence. Achiuwa was the most impressive of the group, posting a performance of 21 points and nine rebounds in 30 minutes in last night’s loss to the Hawks. As long as he continues to see plenty of game time, the 22-year-old will represent a solid value option in DFS competitions at his current FanDuel price tag of $3,900.

Toronto’s odds of winning the Eastern Conference are currently +3900.
