The Toronto Raptors have returned home for a Valentine’s Day tilt against the Minnesota Timberwolves.
It’s expected to be the first game back for OG Anunoby since suffering a left calf strain against the Indiana Pacers on January 25. Anunoby practiced on Saturday and should be right back in the starting lineup on Sunday, according to Raptors coach Nick Nurse.
For the Timberwolves, things are a little bit bleaker. D’Angelo Russell remains sidelined with left leg soreness and has already been ruled out.
Even against the 6-20 Timberwolves, Toronto might have to do some offensive adjusting Sunday night. The Raptors rank third in the NBA in 3-point shots taken per game, but no team in the league allows fewer 3-pointers than Minnesota. If Pascal Siakam and Norman Powell can continue attacking inside, it shouldn’t be too much of an issue for Toronto considering Minntosta’s lackluster interior defence.
