Toronto Raptors coach Nick Nurse has officially retired from injury fortune-telling.

So what's the latest on Gary Trent Jr. who left Friday night's game with a right calf contusion?

"I haven’t been very good at my prognostications of day-to-day and guys not taking very long to get back and things like that, so I have no indication that he is in or out," Nurse told reporters following Saturday's practice. "He is somewhere in the middle of that for tomorrow."

Trent did sit out practice and was feeling sore, Nurse said, suggesting he probably won't be ready to go when Toronto takes on the Boston Celtics on Sunday.

While OG Anunoby did participate in some of Saturday's practice, he didn't "go all the way," Nurse said, and will once again be listed as questionable.
