According to Ryan WolstatThe Raptors are "quietly optimistic." Forward OG Anunoby will return sometime during the Finals, which begin on Thursday.
According to sources, the Raptors are pretty optimistic that they will get OG Anunoby sometime against the Warriors in the NBA finals. They are not sure, but the spacing of the games should help. Also the long breaks between most games help Kawhi a lot.

Anunoby missed the entire postseason after an appendectomy on April 12. Anunoby was seen training before Game 6 of the Eastern Conference finals in Toronto.
