Raptors’ Delon Wright, OG Anunoby expected to play Monday vs. Bucks

OG Anunoby, Delon Wright, Raptors

The Toronto Raptors are expected to have Delon Wright and OG Anunoby back in action when they visit the Milwaukee Bucks this Monday.

Both players missed the Raptors’ match with the Dallas Mavericks last Friday. Delon Wright has been dealing with a left adductor strain and has only played in one game this season — a five-minute cameo appearance in Wednesday’s win over the Minnesota Timberwolves

Meanwhile, OG Anunoby was out due to personal reasons. The 21-year-old has already played five games (one start) for Toronto before missing their latest match, averaging 7.2 points and 3.4 rebounds.

While Delon Wright isn’t in full strength yet and OG Anunoby still away from the team, the Raptors are confident the two will return just in time as they take on the Bucks in the battle for the top spot in the Eastern Conference, per Blake Murphy of The Athletic.

Backup point guard Fred VanVleet, on the other hand, is still doubtful for the game as he continues to recover from a sprained left big toe.

The Raptors certainly need all the help they can get as they prepare for the Bucks. Like them, Milwaukee is also 6-0 so far in the NBA. Giannis Antetokounmpo is making his case as MVP for the Bucks, putting up 25.0 points, 14.2 rebounds and 5.7 assists on a nightly basis.
