Concern in Toronto: Siakam, doubt for the room

The center of the Raptors suffers a contusion in the calf of the right leg. This Saturday will be tested. The duel, this Sunday (9:30).

Inquiry in Toronto. Pascal Siakam is doubtful for the fourth match of the Eastern Conference semifinal against the Philadelphia 76ers (Sunday, 21:30) for a bruise on the calf of his right leg, reports Adrian Wojnarowski. The player will be tested this Saturday during training. The tie goes 2-1 in favor of the Sixers.

The pivot is the Raptors great news this season. With an outstanding growth, the Cameroonian has become an authentic offensive weapon, either from long distance or under the basket. In addition, he has a brilliant ability in the one against and in the handling of the ball. That is why the elevation of all its statistical numbers is not surprising: from 7.3 points on the Regular Season pass to 16.9 this; from 4.5 rebounds to 6.9 and from 2.0 assists to 3.1. His percentage since the triple has also taken a leap forward with 36.9% compared to 22.0% the previous year.

His influence on the team is remarkable and during the playoffs has not been hidden. It is at 30.7 points for every 100 possessions and with him on the court, the Raptors have a +10.1. If he does not finally play against the Sixers, Nick Nurse will have a very difficult problem and will join the already known low (and important) of OG Anunoby. Bad time to lose cash.
