The Toronto Raptors announced Friday that Pascal Siakam underwent successful surgery last week to repair a torn labrum in his left shoulder. The surgery was performed by Dr. Neal ElAttrache at Kerlan-Jobe Orthopaedic Clinic in Los Angeles. The injury to Siakam’s shoulder occurred May 8 vs. Memphis. The expected recovery and rehabilitation time for this procedure is approximately five months, and his condition will be updated as appropriate.
More Rumors in this Storyline
Blake Murphy: That would mean Siakam is unlikely to be ready for the beginning of next season (Oct. 19) unless he’s ahead of schedule (~early Nov.).
Michael Grange: The good news on Siakam’s shoulder injury/surgery is he’ll be able to resume on-court work in July, I’m told. Initial hope was he could rehab the torn labrum in his left (non-shooting) shoulder, but eventually opted for an arthroscopic repair.
Eric Koreen: Pascal Siakam did not practise on Thursday and his status for Friday’s game is unclear. He has a sore groin which outdated his fall after a dunk on Wednesday.
Josh Lewenberg: Asked about the groin injury, Siakam said he felt it right away and immediately had trouble walking. “It was a bad idea for me to finish the game.” Initial timeline was at least 4 weeks.
Toronto Raptors star Pascal Siakam is expected to practice Friday with hopes of returning to the lineup in the next week, league sources told ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski. Siakam has not played since Dec. 18, when he suffered a groin injury during an awkward landing. He is averaging a team-leading 25.1 points and 8.0 rebounds in 27 games this season.
Ryan Wolstat: OK, Raptors just announced Siakam out indefinitely too with a groin issue. Gasol and Powell as expected.
Ryan Wolstat: Nurse on Siakam: “He’s feeling about the same.” Says there are a few limits on him, specifically the long stretches in a row they were doing before are “probably done.”
Eric Koreen: Pascal Siakam not listed on injury report.
Rosalyn Gold-Onwude: Raptors Coach Nurse said Pascal Siakam is “doing ok, not 100%, …have confidence he could impact the game more than he did yesterday”. Today Raptors had light practice: just film and shooting.
Eric Koreen: Pascal Siakam is now questionable.
Shams Charania: Pascal Siakam will play in Game 4 against the Philadelphia 76ers.
Jon Johnson: Pascal Siakam will be a game time decision
Tom Moore: #Raptors coach Nick Nurse on Pascal Siakam: ‘We’re still waiting. He hasn’t been on the court yet.’ Didn’t practice Saturday.
Josh Lewenberg: Siakam says he isn’t sure how he hurt his calf. Felt it after Game 3 once the adrenaline wore off. He doesn’t know if he’ll be able to play in Game 4, said it’s very sore and a little swollen.
Tim Bontemps: The Raptors say Pascal Siakam is doubtful for Game 4 with a calf contusion. To say that’s a blow for Toronto is an understatement, especially considering they are already down 2-1 in the series.
Shams Charania: Sources on @TheAthleticNBA @WatchStadium: Raptors’ Pascal Siakam is expected to be day-to-day after hard fall on his back tonight in Portland; no damage found in postgame tests. Siakam has emerged as a valuable player for Toronto.

Rachel Nichols: I’m told Kyrie was in a walking boot and using crutches after spraining his ankle during today’s Nets-Bucks Game 4. Steve Nash says that x-rays on the ankle were negative and that Kyrie will undergo further testing/evaluation tomorrow.
Tim Bontemps: Pat Connaughton says he “negotiated” with the training staff to avoid getting stitches to get back in the game faster. Said he may have to get them at some point, but glue was used instead to fix the cut over his left eye.
Mirjam Swanson: Ty Lue on his assistant coach/good buddy Chauncey Billups: “I wanted to coach with him when I was in Cleveland but he didn’t want to coach. I tease him all the time, he missed out on $15-18 million dollars” because he would’ve been a head coach for a few seasons already.
