Siakam Expected To Miss Next Three Games

Raptors forward Pascal Siakam is expected to remain sidelined until after the All-Star break due to the league’s health and safety protocols, ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski tweets.

Siakam was placed under those protocols on Friday and missed the team’s game against Houston. A majority of the coaching staff, including head coach Nick Nurse, also missed the game due to those restrictions.

Siakam is averaging 20.1 PPG, 7.5 RPG and 4.8 APG this season. Toronto was able to get past the Rockets 122-111 with Chris Boucher taking his spot in the lineup. Yuta Watanabe received some additional playing time off the bench.

The Raptors, who are sitting at .500, have home dates with Chicago and Detroit and a road trip to Boston prior to the break.

    With all of their medical issues and medical concerns, it is a relief to know that the head coach is a NURSE !!

  2. 1) terrible pun, please don’t do that again.

    2) with all the injuries and turnover with the Raps, winning 2 out of 3 and going into the AS break doesn’t seem unreasonable to expect. They’re 15-9 in their last 24 after the 2-8 start. They’re not a true Eastern Conference contender, but better health and potential buyout pickup(s) could keep them in the 4-5 seed range and give them a shot at winning a round.
