Raptors' Birch out Friday vs. Pacers, Anunoby questionable

Toronto Raptors centre Khem Birch remains out for Friday's game against the Indiana Pacers while forward OG Anunoby is listed as questionable, according to Sportsnet's Blake Murphy. Murphy reported Wednesday that Birch is dealing with a lingering wear-and-tear knee issue with swelling having gone up and down over a course of weeks. The Montreal native missed a week with the same injury earlier this month. The 29-year-old is averaging 6.9 points and 5.7 rebounds over 22.9 minutes per game this season. Anunoby, 24, hasn't played since Nov. 15 because of an injured left hip pointer. He's averaging a career-high 20.1 points through 15 games so far this season.
