Siakam scored 17 points (7-9 FG, 2-2 3PT, 1-2 FT) to go with six rebounds, two assists and one steal in 22 minutes during Wednesday's 122-98 win against Chicago.
Siakam's 17 points were the forward's best total since October 27. After going eight games without a double-digit scoring performance, the forward has scored in double figures in four out of his last seven games as a reserve. Siakam had one of his most efficient shooting performances, sinking 7-of-9 shots, two of them from beyond the arc for a bench-leading 17 points against Chicago. He will look to build on this scoring performance when Toronto takes on Milwaukee Friday.
Siakam had 13 points (4-8 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 4-4 FT), five rebounds and one assist in 20 minutes during Friday's 130-105 victory over the Trail Blazers.
Siakam saw additional playing time along with much of the bench, collecting 13 points along the way. He has shown some glimpses of what he can do this season when given the opportunity but seems to be relegated to a bench role behind both Jonas Valanciunas and Jakob Poeltl. Coach Dwane Casey can change his rotations with little notice and if this occurs, Siakam could hold some value. At this stage, however, he should remain unowned in most league formats.
Siakam finished with 13 points (6-9 FG, 1-4 3Pt), four rebounds, four assists, two steals and one block in 30 minutes during Saturday's 112-78 victory over the Hawks.
Siakam looked good again Saturday, coming off the bench in the blowout victory. He has been backing up Serge Ibaka, however, has outplayed him on numerous occasions. Ibaka has been disappointing so far this season, and whether he can hold onto the starting spot remains to be seen. However it plays out, Siakam is in line for consistent minutes. He will not have any outrageous stat lines, but can contribute across the board. He could be worth a look in deeper leagues for his defensive upside.
Siakam will return to the bench for Sunday's game against the Wizards.
Siakam drew the start on Friday with Serge Ibaka (knee) sitting out, posting a solid 13 points, four rebounds, five assists and three blocks across 34 minutes. However, Ibaka has been cleared for a return on Sunday and he'll take back the starting power forward role, which sends Siakam to the bench. Look for Siakam's playing time to take a hit, which should restrict his fantasy value to just those in the deepest of leagues.
Siakam totaled 13 points (6-11 FG), four rebounds, five assists and three blocks across 34 minutes of action in a 107-84 win over the New York Knicks on Friday.
If Siakam didn't test out his three-ball tonight (0-5 3PT), his impressive line would have looked even better. The reason he played so many minutes is because Serge Ibaka (knee) couldn't suit up, , as his role is still way up in the air. He's played more than 21 minutes only once this month coming into this matchup and he'll remain irrelevant for fantasy unless Ibaka's absence is extended.
