Siakam recorded 20 points (7-15 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 4-4 FT), six rebounds, six assists and one block across 39 minutes during Monday's 118-113 loss to the Trail Blazers.

It's understandable that Siakam took a few games to get his legs under him after missing Toronto's first 10 contests this season -- in his first two games back, he averaged just 11.5 points on 42.1 percent shooting. The forward has been considerably better over his subsequent pair of contests, posting per-game averages of 22.5 points, 9.0 boards and 6.5 dimes. He has also played at least 35 minutes in each of those contests, so it looks like Siakam has shed his minutes limit and is ready to roll without restrictions.
