Toronto Raptors forwards OG Anunoby and Yuta Watanabe have been ruled out of Wednesday's game against the Washington Wizards.

Anunoby was deemed questionable heading into the matchup, and has now missed seven games with a calf strain. He is averaging a career-high 14.6 points, 5.8 rebounds, 2.1 steals and 1.6 assists in 17 games this season.

Watanabe suffered an ankle injury during a workout Tuesday, but the issue does not sound like a long-term concern.

Kyle Lowry, who was forced to leave Monday's win over the Memphis Grizzlies with back spasms, returns to the lineup but will be monitored throughout the game.
