Raptors’ Pascal Siakam to Miss Five Months Following Shoulder Surgery
The Toronto Raptors offseason is off to a rough start.
Over the weekend, the team confirmed that All-Star Pascal Siakam has undergone successful surgery to repair a torn labrum in his left shoulder, which the 27-year old originally suffered on May 8 in a loss to the Memphis Grizzlies.
Siakam is expected to make a full recovery and will be out of action for approximately five months.

The regular season is expected to begin in October, which would mean that Siakam is expected to miss the entirety of the preseason and the start of the Raptors’ 2021-2022 campaign.
Siakam is coming off a season in which he averaged 21.4 points, 7.2 rebounds and 4.5 assists per game.
