OG Anunoby: How long will the Toronto Raptors forward be out? Injury timeline, latest updates

The Toronto Raptors have been without OG Anunoby for over two weeks because of a left calf strain, and it is unclear when he might return to the lineup.

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.

Injury timeline

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.

Anunoby was considered to be a game-time decision for Toronto's meeting with the Milwaukee Bucks on Jan. 27, 2021, but was ruled out shortly before tipoff.
