Siakam is considered day-to-day after taking a hard fall on his back in Friday's loss to the Trail Blazers, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.
Siakam finished the game with ten points (3-8 FG, 2-4 3PT, 2-2 FT) and four boards in just 25 minutes. His limited minutes were due to the fall that injured his back. While the injury does not sound serious, his status for Sunday's matchup with the Nuggets is uncertain at the moment. With Jonas Valanciunas (finger) already sidelined, Greg Monroe could be in line for some more run should Siakam ultimately miss any time. Expect an update once the Raptors provide an update on the situation.
Kyle Lowry and Serge Ibaka did a lot of the heavy lifting on offense, but Siakam turned in a solid stat line in a complementary role. The second-year big man has been a virtual lock for double-digit points on most nights, but he's surprisingly seen a downturn on the boards over the last pair of contests. After opening December with no fewer than five rebounds and as many as eight over the first five games of the month, Siakam has only three boards apiece over the last two.
Siakam's 14.8 points and 6.4 rebounds per game to go with a 63.6 percent conversion rate from the field have driven most of his fantasy value thus far, but the third-year forward has lifted his ceiling higher the last two games while flashing some ability as a facilitator. He's dropped 12 dimes over that span, with the seven he notched Monday representing a new career high.
Siakam totaled 26 points (8-10 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 7-8 FT), two rebounds, one assist and one block across 42 minutes in Thursday's 131-128 overtime win over the Warriors.
All of the starters for the Raptors got heavy run in the game, and Siakam cashed in with a season-high scoring output in the contest. He has been a fairly consistent scorer for most of the year, although it would be nice to see his rebound production increase from the power forward position.
Siakam supplied 21 points (8-9 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 4-4 FT), six rebounds, three assists, two steals, and two blocks in 31 minutes during Sunday's 125-115 win over the Heat.
Siakam had reached double figures in scoring in 14 straight games prior to Friday's seven-point effort against the Wizards. This was the sixth time Siakam has scored 20-plus points through 21 appearances this season. He had scored 20 points only once prior to this season, so his ability to fill it up offensively has been a pleasant surprise. Moreover, Siakam has established himself as an integral part of the rotation because he's an extremely versatile defender who can also create for himself and others on offense.
