  • Pascal Siakam - F - Toronto Raptors

    Pascal Siakam played 36 minutes, scoring 14 points (on 15 field goal attempts) with 13 rebounds and four defensive counters on Thursday night.

    Siakam wasn't efficient on the offensive side including a sequence of three missed 3-pointers on the same possession during the Raptors' sluggish start. He was pivotal to the fourth quarter defensive effort especially when protecting the rim against Giannis late in the game.

    Pascal Siakam had a solid stat line on Sunday, with 25 points and 11 rebounds on 9-of-18 shooting in 51 minutes of action in a double overtime win over the Bucks in Game 3.

    As expected, Siakam bounced back from his underwhelming Game 2 performance with an absolute gem in Game 3. Siakam is proving that he is a force to be reckoned with in this league as he is not shying away from the game's biggest stage. He added one assist, three steals, one block and three 3-pointers to the stat sheet. The Raptors brought the series within one game and have a chance to even up the series on Tuesday night.

    Pascal Siakam had one of his worst games of the entire postseason on Friday as he fouled out in 26 minutes and put up eight points and one rebound on 4-of-9 shooting.

    The Raptors are now down two games in the series, so Game 3 in Toronto will either keep them alive or sink their season. Siakam was just named a finalist for the NBA's Most Improved Player award, so performances like this one are discouraging for the budding star. However, expect Siakam to bounce back and have a solid performance in Game 3 as the Raptors look to make this a competitive series.

    Pascal Siakam, De’Aaron Fox and D’Angelo Russell have been named as finalists for the NBA’s Most Improved Player award.

    All three took major steps in improving their respective games and it’ll be really hard to award just one. That said, only one will win it and while we don’t have a vote, ours would be for Siakam.

    Pascal Siakam did not play well in the Game 1 loss against the Bucks on Wednesday with 15 points and six rebounds on 6-of-20 shooting.

    He shot just 2-of-9 from beyond the arc and added three assists, one steal and one block to the box score. Siakam’s shots were not falling in this one, but do not expect this to continue for the entirety of the series. If he plays better in Game 2, we could see the Raptors even up the series.

    Pascal Siakam reportedly looked spry during Thursday's shootaround ahead of Game 6 against the Sixers.

    Siakam shook off his calf injury in Game 5 when he went for 25 points in 34 minutes. It looks like Siakam is feeling no effects from Game 5 and should be ready to roll moving forward.

    Pascal Siakam led the Raptors in scoring in Tuesday's Game 5 with 25 points on 7-of-19 shooting while adding eight rebounds, three assists, two steals, a block and two 3-pointers.

    Siakam had a big bounce-back game and it was much needed as Kawhi Leonard's offense slowed down a bit tonight. He was also effective on the defensive end, bothering the Sixers on that end of the floor and continues to be an elite threat in transition. He logged 34 minutes tonight and avoided any kong stretches of play to rest his calf thanks to the Raptors eviscerating the Sixers.

    Nick Nurse said that although Pascal Siakam (right calf contusion) is feeling a little bit better, he still has limits and the team is "probably done," playing him for long stretches in a row.

    With Siakam at less than full-strength and looking at shorter stints, the Raptors are going to really need Serge Ibaka to step up for the rest of the playoffs. Siakam can still be productive in limited action, but it'll be hard to trust him in DFS leagues knowing he likely won't be playing long stretches.

    Pascal Siakam (right calf contusion) is not on the injury report and will play in Game 5 on Tuesday.

    Siakam already said that he'd be in the lineup tomorrow, and this shouldn't come as a surprise after he played through a doubtful tag in Game 4. He was far less mobile than usual on Sunday and shot just 2-of-10, so the Raptors are hoping that Monday's day off does him some good.

  • Pascal Siakam - F - Toronto Raptors

    Pascal Siakam (right calf contusion) said that he'll play in Tuesday's Game 5.

    Siakam was a true game-time decision on Sunday and played through it, and he doesn't seem to be at risk of an aggravation since the injury is a bruise and not a strain or tear of any sort. The Raptors were able to win a game in Philly despite their second-leading scorer putting up nine points on 2-of-10 from the field, and if Siakam can get back closer to 100 percent it'll help the team's odds immensely. Most of his jumpers came up short in Game 4 and he was limited to 29 minutes between the team's restrictions on him and Siakam's own decreased mobility.

    Pascal Siakam was clearly limited by his right calf contusion on Sunday, finishing with nine points, three rebounds, two assists and three steals on 2-of-10 shooting.

    Siakam was also limited to 29 minutes and sat most of the fourth quarter because he just wasn't mobile enough. The Sixers happily sagged off him once again and Siakam missed his first seven shots (most of them coming up short) before getting two easy dunks. The Raptors were able to take a road game without him at full strength, and they'll just hope that Siakam can get closer to 100 percent for Game 5.

    Pascal Siakam (right calf contusion) will play on Sunday vs. the 76ers.

    Siakam was questionable going into this game and for a little while it looked like he really wasn't going to play. The Raptors are down 2-1 and this is a must-win for them so they'll need Siakam to provide them with everything he's got.

  • Pascal Siakam - F - Toronto Raptors

    Pascal Siakam (right calf contusion) is a game-time decision on Sunday and will have his status determined after going through warmups.

    Siakam is technically doubtful but the general consensus is that it'd be surprising if he doesn't play. We'll get another update within the next hour or so. Nick Nurse added that Fred VanVleet, Serge Ibaka or "one other guy" would move into the starting lineup if Siakam sat. That "other guy" figures to be Patrick McCaw, though the Raptors have run a short enough bench that it could be someone completely unexpected.

    The Raptors are calling Pascal Siakam (right calf contusion) doubtful for Sunday's Game 4.

    Wow. This injury comes out of nowhere as Siakam was able to finish Thursday's Game 3 without any known incident. Toronto's second-leading scorer has struggled against the Sixers but this injury is a series-changer if he is indeed unable to play tomorrow. Toronto's lack of depth means that it'll likely be Serge Ibaka or Norman Powell starting, though Patrick McCaw and Fred VanVleet are also in the running if the Raptors want to go very small.
