Sources: Anunoby could sit until conference finals

NBA

After an emergency appendectomy, Toronto Raptors guard OG Anunoby could be unavailable in the playoffs until a potential berth in the Eastern Conference Finals, league sources told ESPN.

The second-seeded Raptors meet the Orlando Magic in Game 1 of an Eastern Conference first-round series on Saturday.

Anunoby underwent the procedure on Thursday after being diagnosed with acute appendicitis.

Anunoby has averaged seven points and 2.9 rebounds in 20 minutes a game for the Raptors, and brings an ability to guard several different positions on the court.

Anunoby was the 23rd overall pick in the 2017 NBA draft.
