The Toronto Raptors are finally out of COVID-19 Health and Safety Protocols.
After getting Fred VanVleet, Pascal Siakam, Malachi Flynn, and Patrick McCaw back on the court Wednesday night, the league has officially cleared OG Anunoby from COVID-19 protocols. The team has not listed anyone on its March 18 injury report ahead of Friday night’s game against the Utah Jazz.
The 23-year-old Anunoby was the last remaining Raptors player till awaiting clearance to return. He has been our since at least March 2 when he first showed up on Toronto’s injury report due to COVID-19 protocols.
While Anunoby was unable to play Wednesday night, he did travel with the team to Detroit and has been working out first 1-on-0 and as well as with the team, Raptors coach Nick Nurse said.
“He looked like he conditioned well during his time off,” Nurse said Thursday.
Neither VanVleet nor Siakam looked entirely themselves in their first game out of COVID-19 protocols and it’s unlikely Anunoby comes back at 100% after almost three weeks away from the team.
More to come.
