2019 NBA Finals: Toronto Raptors vs. Golden State Warriors

Raptors' Anunoby upgraded to questionable for Game 1

The Toronto Raptors punched their ticket to the franchise’s first appearance in The Finals, and they could get a key piece back for their matchup with the Golden State Warriors.

According to Ryan Wolstat of the Toronto Sun, the Raptors are ‘quietly optimistic’ forward OG Anunoby will return at some point during The Finals, which begin Thursday. At media day on Wednesday, Anunoby was officially upgraded to questionable for Game 1.

Anunoby has missed the entire postseason after having an appendectomy April 12. Anunoby was seen working out before Game 6 of the Eastern Conference finals in Toronto.

Anunoby averaged 7.0 points and 2.9 rebounds in 20.2 minutes per game and served as one of Toronto’s best defenders.

The Finals start Thursday night in Toronto (9 ET, ABC).
