Raptors’ Nurse: Anunoby not considered close to return

Fred VanVleet, Danny Green and Coach Nurse discuss the importance of the Raptors bench unit coming in and being more impactful on the offensive and defensive ends in their limited minutes.

Toronto Raptors head coach Nick Nurse says forward OG Anunoby is not considered close to a return from an emergency appendectomy.

Anunoby underwent the procedure on April 11, two days before the Raptors played Game 1 of their first-round series against the Orlando Magic.

The 21-year-old wasn’t given a timeline to return when the surgery was first announced.

In 67 games in his sophomore season, Anunoby averaged 7.0 points, 2.9 rebounds and 20.2 minutes per game.
