2018 Fantasy Outlook
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 (abdomen) could be out until the Raptors potentially make the Eastern Conference Finals, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
ANALYSIS
Anunoby's appendectomy originally carried a timetable of about two weeks, but the new word is that he'll be out much longer. The team should continue providing updates as he reaches milestones in his recovery. While he's out, Norman Powell figures to see extra run.

2017 Fantasy Outlook
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.
