OG Anunoby is set to return to the court for the Toronto Raptors on Sunday against the Detroit Pistons after missing three consecutive games due to a right index finger laceration sustained during household chores, as reported by the team.

Despite being listed as probable, Anunoby is confirmed to play, having undergone stitches for the injury.

According to Raptors’ Darko Rajaković, there are no anticipated restrictions on Anunoby, whose 39.3% three-point shooting prowess this season is crucial for the team, especially given the shortage of shooters on the roster.

Anticipate Anunoby reclaiming his spot in the starting lineup, prompting Gary Trent Jr. to transition into a sixth-man role.

Toronto’s bench is expected to feature Otto Porter Jr., Malachi Flynn, Precious Achiuwa, and potentially Gradey Dick and Chris Boucher.

Thad Young and Christian Koloko will be unavailable for Toronto, while Detroit will be without Bojan Bogdanovic, Joe Harris, Jalen Duran, Killian Hayes, Isaiah Livers, and Monte Morris.
