F - TOR - OUT
Pascal Siakam (shoulder) didn’t play in Sunday's 125-113 loss against the Pacers.
Siakam missed the last four games due to a shoulder strain. The 27-year-old finishes his fifth season with the Raptors averaging 21.4 points, 7.2 rebounds, 4.5 assists, 1.1 steals, 0.7 blocks, and 1.3 triples across 35.8 minutes.
Pascal Siakam will miss his second straight game due to the injury, and it should be expected that Toronto will be extremely careful with their young star with the season all but over.
Siakam is certainly a force to be reckoned with when healthy, but it seems as if this injury may rule him out for the remainder of the year. Stanley Johnson, Khem Birch, and Freddie Gillespie should divide up the minutes at the power forward and center spots moving forward.
Pascal Siakam exited Saturday's 109-99 loss to the Grizzlies early with a left shoulder strain.
Siakam logged 30 minutes before exiting Saturday’s loss early with a shoulder strain. He provided 18 points (8-21 FG, 0-4 3PT, 2-4 FT), three rebounds, and four assists across 30 minutes before exiting. Siakam is considered day-to-day and his next chance to return will be Tuesday against the Clippers.

Siakam matched a career-high 44 points and was three assists shy of recording his second triple-double of the season. He’s now recorded a double-double in two of his last three games. The 26-year-old has been on absolute fire during that three-game stretch and had averaged 35.7 points, 10.3 rebounds, 4.3 assists, 2.0 steals, and 2.3 triples across 40.7 minutes. Siakam will look to continue his torrid play when the Raptors host the Grizzlies on Saturday.

Siakam will look keep up his strong play when the Raptors host the Wizards on Thursday.
