He has been ruled out for Toronto's meeting with the Minnesota Timberwolves on Sunday, Feb. 14.

Here's everything we know about Anunoby's injury and when he could return.
How long will OG Anunoby be out?
Following Toronto's win over the Orlando Magic on Jan. 31, Raptors head coach Nick Nurse said they're probably going to be without Anunoby for "at least" another week, per The Athletic's Eric Koreen.
Although his status was listed as questionable, Anunoby sat out Toronto's victory over the Washington Wizards on Feb. 10 after undergoing a strenuous workout the day before. Anunoby was listed as questionable again against the Boston Celtics on Feb. 11, but Nurse revealed before the game that he wouldn't play.
While Anunoby was expected to return against the Minnesota Timberwolves on Feb. 14, he was ruled out less than two hours prior to tip.

|Tuesday, Feb. 16||at Milwaukee Bucks||8:00 p.m.|
|Thursday, Feb. 18||at Milwaukee Bucks||7:30 p.m.|
|Friday, Feb. 19||at Minnesota Timberwolves||9:00 p.m.|
|Sunday, Feb. 21||vs. Philadelphia 76ers||7:00 p.m.|
Anunoby has already missed 10 games with the injury this year.
Now in his fourth season with the Raptors, Anunoby is averaging a career-best 14.6 points, 5.8 rebounds and 2.1 steals through 17 games.
Anunoby suffered the injury late in Toronto's loss to the Indiana Pacers on Jan. 25, 2021. It's unknown when exactly it occurred.
Anunoby had his best game of the season the day before, leading the short-handed Raptors to a win over the Pacers with 30 points, eight rebounds and five steals.
