In the midst of a crucial streak in their schedule, the Toronto Raptors will be without the services of OG Anunoby for the next four games.
The London native injured his wrist in an accident in a 123-105 win over the Portland Trail Blazers. He did not suffer a broken bone, but he will be sidelined for the remainder of the Raps’ trip to the American West.
This season, Anunoby averaged 16.9 points, 5.5 rebounds and 2 assists per game. He is also the tied leader in steals per game on the Silver Tour, with 2.1.
The 25-year-old athlete did not choose his moment to find himself on the floor. Nick Nurse’s men are trying to salvage their season and climb the standings to qualify for the playoffs. Pointing to 12th place in the Eastern Conference, the Raptors players will have to impress by the trade deadline, February 9, to convince the Toronto staff not to become salesmen.
Anunoby is precisely one of the players who arouses the most interest among other teams. According to the FOX Sports network, he would not be happy with the Raptors and he could pack his bags if a team is willing to pay top dollar for his services.
The New York Knicks and Phoenix Suns have reportedly knocked on the door of the Queen City team to acquire Anunoby, who will receive an annual salary of $18.6 million until 2025.
