The Toronto Raptors have announced that Gary Trent Jr. (hyperextended toe), OG Anunoby (finger) and Malachi Flynn (hamstring) are all out for Monday’s game against the Chicago Bulls. Fred VanVleet is expected to play.

Isaac Bonga, Justin Champagnie and David Johnson are with the G League’s Raptors 905, and will not be available.

Trent Jr. scored nine points on 2-of-13 shooting in Sunday night’s win against the Philadelphia 76ers. When or how the injury occurred is unclear as of Monday afternoon.

Anunoby has been out since Feb. 16, while Flynn last played on March 4 against the Orlando Magic.

Raptors head coach Nick Nurse said on Friday that both players would likely miss at least another week.

VanVleet missed Sunday’s game due to injury management of his ongoing knee soreness. The 2021 All-Star has been in and out of the lineup in recent weeks.
