Siakam Doubtful for Game 4

Raptors’ Pascal Siakam ”Doubtful” for Game 4 with Calf Contusion

If things couldn’t get any worse after a Game 3 beatdown, the Toronto Raptors announced today that Pascal Siakam has been listed as “doubtful” for Game 4 after suffering a calf contusion on Thursday night.

The injury may have occurred when a frustrated Siakam put his leg out in order to trip Joel Embiid in the fourth quarter.

The Raptors will continue to treat Siakam’s injury in hopes that he can suit up for tomorrow afternoon’s affair. As this injury seems to be nothing more than a calf contusion, there is still a fairly good chance that Siakam sees time on the floor. The favourite to win Most Improved Player, Siakam has averaged 22.9 points per game for the Raptors throughout the playoffs, and scored 20 points in a losing Game 3 effort.

Down 2-1 in the series, with Game 4 in Philadelphia, the Raptors will need to come out as the more aggressive team as they hope to reclaim home court advantage. If Siakam ends up sitting out, the Raptors will enter Sunday with their back’s even further against the wall and a need to swing the momentum in this series.

If Siakam cannot play, Serge Ibaka is his most likely replacement in the starting lineup.
