After an emergency appendectomy, Toronto Raptors guard OG Anunoby may not be available in the playoffs until a possible spot in the Eastern Conference Finals, league sources told ESPN.

The second-seeded Raptors will face the Orlando Magic in Game 1 of a first-round Eastern Conference series on Saturday.

Anunoby underwent the procedure on Thursday after being diagnosed with acute appendicitis.

Anunoby has averaged seven points and 2.9 rebounds in 20 minutes per game for the Raptors, and offers the ability to protect several different positions on the court.

Anunoby was the 23rd pick in the 2017 NBA draft.
