Siakam accumulated 17 points (7-17 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 2-3 FT), 12 rebounds, four assists and one block over 37 minutes during Friday's 114-97 loss to Indiana. This was Siakam's second double-double of the season, but he seems to be on the rise following a slow start to the campaign and the fact that he missed Toronto's first 10 games due to injury. He's now scored at least 15 points in four games in a row.
Siakam mustered 21 points (8-17 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 2-5 FT), six rebounds, two assists, one block and one steal in 34 minutes during Sunday's 119-104 loss to Golden State. Siakam stayed hot in Sunday's loss and was the only player to record 20-plus points for the Raptors. The 27-year-old has scored at least 20 points in four of the last five games, and he's averaged 20.4 points, 7.0 rebounds and 4.2 assists in 33.8 minutes per contest during that time.
Siakam recorded 32 points (10-12 FG, 3-3 3Pt, 9-10 FT), eight rebounds, one assist and two blocks across 30 minutes during Friday's 108-89 win over the Kings. Siakam bounced back after a poor performance in the Raptors' previous game, delivering fantasy managers what was well and truly his best performance thus far. The efficiency was back, both from the floor and the charity stripe, erasing memories from just 48 hours prior. He is still early in terms of his return to action, so there are going to be a few bumps in the road. With that being said, he should be able to keep the arrow pointing in the right direction moving forward, making him a valuable asset in every format.
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.
Siakam ended Saturday's 127-121 loss to the Pistons with 25 points (9-14 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 5-9 FT), 12 rebounds, seven assists and one steal over 35 minutes. Siakam was thought to be on a soft minutes limit, but that wasn't noticeable considering he logged 35 minutes while ending just three assists away from a triple-double. The versatile big man has seen his minutes ramp up with each passing game, and his upside should only increase as the minutes restriction disappears while the season progresses.
