Pascal Siakam out for health and safety protocols

USA Today Sports

Raptors star small forward Pascal Siakam will be out the next three games due to league health and safety protocols.

Siakam missed Friday’s game against the Rockets, and will now miss the team’s upcoming matchups with the Bulls, Pistons, and Celtics.

It’s unclear whether or not if the 26-year-old tested positive for COVID or if this is a contact tracing issue.

Either way, the earliest Siakam is eligible will be after the All-Star break on March 11.

According to RealGM, Toronto is without head coach Nick Nurse and five other coaches for protocols.

Siakam is averaging 20.1 points, 7.5 rebounds, and 4.8 assists across 30 games played this season.
