Some positive Raptors news: Pascal Siakam’s return is imminent, I’m hearing. *Could* be as soon as Sunday vs. Nets, if not then Wednesday @ Celtics. No later than Saturday vs. Detroit.
ANALYSIS: Grange later reported head coach Nick Nurse confirmed that Siakam will return to the lineup Sunday, and he will be on a minutes restriction. Siakam has missed the start of the season for Toronto due to an ailing shoulder injury, and the Raptors will look to ease him back into the lineup.
Siakam is coming off averages of 21.4 points, 7.2 rebounds, and 4.5 assists per game.
