2019 Fantasy Outlook
Anunoby averaged 7.0 points and 2.9 rebounds for Toronto last season, logging 20.2 minutes per night across 62 contests. He also managed 1.0 combined blocks/steals and 1.0 threes per night, draining that many threes for the second straight season. Though he reached new career highs in most counting stats, his field goal percentage (45.2) and three-point percentage (33.2) were significantly lower in 2018-19 than in 2017-18 as a rookie. His role remained virtually unchanged in his second year, losing playing time and production to Kawhi Leonard, Pascal Siakam and Serge Ibaka. But Anunoby could be in for a boost in minutes in 2019. With Leonard gone, Anunoby has a real chance to be the Raptors' starting small forward. Anunoby should be relied upon for his solid defense and potential as a three-point shooter, though his place in the rotation is yet unclear. He's worth a chance as a late-round pickup as a player likely to see starters' minutes on a new-look, rebuilding Toronto team. Read Past Outlooks

Personal Bio

Ogugua "OG" Anunoby was born in London in 1997. Anunoby is named after his father, Ogugua, who moved his six children to Jefferson City, Missouri after receiving a professorship at the nearby Lincoln University. Anunoby got serious about basketball when he was eight year old, after his father purchased a 12 foot basketball hoop for the family's backyard. He soon graduated to the AAU and varsity basketball levels. Athletics has always been in his blood; Anunoby's mother competed in track and field at the national level in Nigeria, and his brother, Chigbo, was a defensive lineman in the NFL, most recently a member of the Cleveland Brown organization. Anunoby turned into a superstar at Jefferson City High School, where he averaged 21.3 points, 9.9 rebounds and 3.4 blocks per game as a junior, helping the Jayhawks to a 15-12 record. He averaged 19.1 points and 8.6 rebounds per game as a senior, and was named a finalist for Missouri Mr. Basketball. Anunoby took his talents to Indiana University Bloomington, which he selected over Gonzaga, Georgia and Vanderbilt. You can follow OG Anunoby on Twitter and Instagram @Oanunoby. OG's last name is pronounced Ann-uh-no-bee.

College/International Summary

OG Anunoby spent two years at Indiana, from 2015 to 2017, appearing in 34 games over the course of his freshman season (2015-16) -- he averaged 4.9 points, and 2.6 rebounds per game as he came off the bench for all 34 games during his first year with the Hoosiers. Anunoby scored a season-high 14 points (6-7 FG) in a win over Chattanooga in the first round of the NCAA Tournament. Things changed the next year, and Anunoby improved in nearly every statistical category. He started 10 games, averaging 11.1 points and 5.4 boards per game before his season was cut short by a knee injury. In sixteen games that year, he added 21 steals and another 21 blocked shots. Anunoby left Indiana for the NBA after his sophomore season, and was selected by the Toronto Raptors with the 23rd pick in the 2017 NBA Draft.

Drops an efficient 23 points in win

August 2, 2020
Anunoby ended with 23 points (8-9 FG, 3-3 3Pt, 4-4 FT), four rebounds, two steals and one assist in 33 minutes during Saturday's 107-92 victory over the Lakers.
ANALYSIS
Anunoby was essentially perfect in the victory, missing just one shot all night. The Raptors dominated the final quarter, demonstrating they are still going to be a force to be reckoned with. Anunoby has put together a strong season thus far, although shooting like this is certainly not to be expected on a regular basis.

Past Season Summaries
2018

Anunoby's sophomore season was full of ups and downs. His strong play resulted in an invitation to participate in the Rising Stars Challenge in February, where he scored 12 points in 18 minutes for Team World. However, multiple ailments, including a wrist injury and a concussion, limited the Indiana product to 67 games during the regular season. If that wasn't enough, a late-season appendectomy wiped out Anunoby's entire postseason. When he did play, the 6-foot-8 forward posted per-game averages of 7.0 points and 2.9 rebounds. He converted 45.3 percent of his field goal attempts, including 33.2 percent of his shots from behind the arc. Anunoby also made 58.1 percent of his free-throw attempts. A four-game stretch from Nov. 5 to Nov. 12 in which he averaged 15.3 points per game was undoubtedly the most impressive run of Anunoby's young career. He also chipped in a 21-point game in mid-December and a 22-point game in mid-February. Anunoby averaged one made three-pointer in addition to one steal-plus-block per game in 20.2 minutes worth of action, so he can contribute in a variety of areas.

2017

OG Anunoby was drafted by the Raptors with the 23rd pick in the 2017 NBA Draft out of the University of Indiana. The small forward appeared in 74 games during his rookie campaign for Toronto, starting an impressive 62 of those contests. Anunoby averaged 5.9 points and 2.5 rebounds per tilt. He shot 47.1 percent from the floor, including 37.1 percent from three-point land. Anunoby scored in double figures on 10 occasions during his rookie season. The rookie from London made his NBA debut on opening night, Oct. 19 during a home win over the Bulls in which Anunoby delivered nine points, three rebounds and two assists. On Apr. 8, Anunoby scored a career-high 21 points against Orlando. It was arguably his best game of his brief career, in which he also pulled down a career-high eight rebounds, and hit five three-pointers in the 112-101 win over the Magic. Anunoby appeared in all 10 of Toronto's playoff games. He averaged 7.9 points and 2.1 rebounds per playoff contest. He reached double-digits in scoring twice during the playoffs, including a playoff-high 18 points against the Cleveland Cavaliers in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals. Anunoby's Raptors, after defeating Washington in the first round, lost to Cleveland in the second round of the playoffs.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2018
2017
Despite being a rookie on a playoff team, Anunoby picked up 62 starts in the 74 games he played in last season. However, defense was his main calling card and that didn't translate to reliable Fantasy stats most nights. Anunoby averaged just 5.9 points and 2.5 rebounds across 20.0 minutes, while shooting 47.1 percent from the field. Despite the lack of coveted cross-category production, Anunoby did at least show some potential as a 3-and-D player. He hit 1.0 three-pointer per game, while shooting a respectable 37.1 percent from deep. After playing the bulk of his minutes at small forward as a rookie, the expectation is that Anunoby spends more time as a small-ball power forward in 2018-19, especially following the addition of superstar Kawhi Leonard. The Raptors are still considering their options in regards to a starting five, but there's been rumblings that either Anunoby or Serge Ibaka could shift into a bench role, with the other guy starting at the four. Either way, Leonard's addition will likely keep Anunoby from making any sort of significant leap with his Fantasy value and he'll continue to be a player that provides more real life value due to his defensive capabilities.
Anunoby opted to leave for the NBA early after just his sophomore year at Indiana, which was especially surprising considering the 6-foot-8 forward had suffered a torn ACL in January, thus ending his season early. Prior to the injury, Anunoby had played in 16 games for the Hoosiers, averaging 11.1 points, 5.4 rebounds and 1.3 assists across 25.1 minutes. However, his decision to leave early eventually paid off, with the Raptors taking a chance on his upside with the 23rd overall pick in the 2017 NBA Draft. Anunoby has demonstrated the potential to be an elite defender at the next level, but he'll need to work on his the ability to create his own offense and become a more consistent shooter. In his final season at Indiana, Anunoby went a respectable 56 percent from the field, but was only a 31 percent shooter from deep and struggled to just 56 percent from the free-throw line. That leaves plenty to be desired in terms of his ability to stretch the floor and convert on freebies, which could ultimately end up restricting his court time during his rookie season. Anunoby has plenty of development ahead of him this season and the the torn ACL remains an issue as well. He's yet to be given any sort of timetable for a return, which makes it unclear if he'll be ready by the start of the regular season. The Raptors brought in C.J. Miles this offseason to compete with Norman Powell for rights to the starting small forward role, so once healthy, it seems likely that Anunoby would be the next option behind the aforementioned two players. That should keep his Fantasy impact limited, barring any other injuries higher up on the depth chart.
