2021 Fantasy Outlook
After four years of continuous growth, Siakam appeared to plateau during what was a tough 2020-21 season for the Raptors. For starters, the Raptors played all their "home" games in Tampa Bay. They also finished with a 27-45 record and missed the playoffs. Siakam's per game points (21.4), rebounds (7.2) and blocks (0.7) dipped modestly last year, though his steals (1.1) and assists (4.5) improved. And his free throw percentage improved to 82.7 percent. With four games left in the season, Siakam hurt his left shoulder, which led to surgery in early June. The procedure means he's unlikely to be available at the start of the 2021-22 season and could miss a few weeks of action. As he enters his age-27 season, Siakam has been involved in various trade rumors, which makes sense if Toronto decides to go into rebuild mode now that Kyle Lowry is in Miami. The Association was surprised to see Toronto take 6-foot-9 forward Scottie Barnes with the fourth pick in last summer's draft. Most experts believed the Raptors would snag high-scoring guard Jalen Suggs. The addition of Barnes certainly adds validity to the Siakam trade rumors. Both Golden State and Sacramento have been rumored destinations. Assuming Siakam stays with Toronto, the departure of Lowry should make more shots available for both him and Fred VanVleet. A healthy Siakam could, come December, see more field goal attempts than last year's 17.2 per game. If he can shake off his shoulder issues, a return to Siakam's 2019-20 All-Star production is certainly possible. Read Past Outlooks

Personal Bio

Pascal Siakam, son of Victoire and Tchamo Siakam, was born in Douala, Cameroon in 1994. Siakam comes from a basketball family. His three older brothers -- Boris, Christian and James, each played collegiate basketball, at Western Kentucky University, Indiana University - Purdue University at Indianapolis and Vanderbilt University respectively. Siakam spent his formative years at a seminary in Bafia, Cameroon, handpicked by his father to enter into a role in the Church. Everything changed after he received an invitation to attend Basketball Without Borders Camp in Johannesburg, South Africa in 2012, landing a scholarship to attend God's Academy in Lewisville, Texas. A year later, he moved on to play collegiate basketball at New Mexico State University. Pascal's last name is pronounced See-AH-kum. His nickname is "Spicy P". You can follow Siakam on Twitter and Instagram @Pskills43.

College/International Summary

Pascal Siakam spent two years (2014-16) at New Mexico State. He started 27 games as a freshman and averaged 12.8 points, 7.7 rebounds and 1.8 blocks per game, appearing in 34 contests for the Lobos. In recognition of his efforts, Siakam was named the WAC Freshman of the Year. As a sophomore, Siakam improved in nearly every statistical category. He started all 34 games he played, averaging a double-double, with 20.3 points, 11.6 rebounds and 2.2 blocks per game. Those numbers led the WAC, and Siakam was named the 2016 Western Athletic Conference Player of the Year, becoming a finalist for the Karl Malone Power Forward of the Year Award. After his sophomore season, Siakam entered the 2016 NBA Draft, where he was selected by the Toronto Raptors with the 27th pick.

October 12, 2021
Coach Nick Nurse said Tuesday that Siakam (shoulder) should start contact work this week and may only be a few weeks from a return, Blake Murphy of The Athletic reports.
ANALYSIS
Nurse added that Siakam has "been going 100 percent for 4-6 weeks," but he has just been practicing against air. In July, Toronto's star forward underwent shoulder surgery and was initially expected to miss the first few weeks of the season. While his progress is encouraging, he will likely still be unavailable for the season opener against the Wizards on Oct. 20.

Past Season Summaries
2020

Siakam appeared in 56 games for the Raptors during the 2020-21 season. In 35.8 minutes per game, he averaged 21.4 points, 7.2 rebounds and career highs in both assists (4.5) and steals (1.1). He shot 45.5 percent from the field, 29.7 percent from three and a career-high 82.7 percent from the free-throw line. For the third year in a row, his season high in scoring was 44 points. In 2020-21, it was achieved against the Wizards on May 6. In that game, he shot 17-of-28 from the field, 2-of-6 from three and 8-of-11 from the charity stripe while also contributing 11 rebounds, seven assists and one steal in 42 minutes. Siakam's season-high 15 rebounds were achieved during the second game of the season, which was against the Spurs. Siakam set a new career high with 12 assists during a win over the Kings on Jan. 8. His season high for both steals and blocks was three. Siakam accumulated 13 double-doubles and one triple-double. His triple-double was Jan. 11 against the Trail Blazers, where Siakam recorded 22 points, 13 rebounds, 10 assists and one steal in 37 minutes.

2019

After breaking out the season before, Siakam took his game to new heights in 2019-20, making (and starting for) his first All-Star team in his fourth NBA season. He took over as the Raptors' main scoring option, averaging 35.2 minutes, 22.9 points, 2.2 threes, 7.2 rebounds, 3.5 assists, 1.0 steals and 0.9 blocks -- all career highs -- over 60 games in the pandemic-shortened season. The Cameroonian forward also continued improving at the free-throw line, setting another personal best by hitting 79.2 percent of his shots from the charity stripe. Siakam racked up 34 points and 18 rebounds in the season opener Oct. 22 -- the first of his 12 double-doubles -- and never looked back. He went on to score 30-plus points on 15 separate occasions, including a career-high 44-point performance along with 10 rebounds on Nov. 8 against New Orleans. That performance helped Siakam win Eastern Conference Player of the Week for Nov. 4-10; he won it a second time for the week of Jan. 20-26. Then, on Jan. 30, Siakam collected a career-high five steals against the Cavaliers. Across Toronto's 11-game postseason run, Siakam averaged 17.0 points, 7.5 rebounds, 3.8 assists and 1.1 steals. He double-doubled four times during the playoffs, including scoring 20 points with a career-high-exceeding 10 assists in the deciding Game 4 of Toronto's first-round sweep of the Nets. Following the regular season, Siakam was named to the All-NBA Second Team -- his first career All-NBA selection.

2018

Siakam was the NBA's Most Improved Player in 2018-2019. He played in 80 games during the regular season with the Raptors, starting 79 of those contests. The Cameroon native averaged career highs of 16.9 points, 6.9 rebounds and 3.1 assists per contest. Siakam shot an impressive 54.9 percent from the field, good for 19th in the NBA. He notched 18 double-doubles during the regular season. On Jan. 13, he scored 24 points and pulled down a career-high 19 rebounds in a win over Washington. Exactly a month later, he torched the Wizards again, racking up a career-high 44 points along with 10 rebounds and three blocks. All in all, Siakam scored at least 30 points five times during the regular season. He took his game to even greater heights during Toronto's magical run to the NBA championship. Over the course of 24 playoff contests, Siakam registered six double-doubles. He tallied 32 points, eight rebounds, five assists, two blocks and a steal in Game 1 of the NBA Finals against the Warriors. In the Raptors' title-clinching Game 6 win, Siakam paced his club with 26 points and 10 rebounds.

2017

Siakam appeared in 81 games during the regular season for the Toronto Raptors in 2017-18, his second season in the league. He started five of those contests. Siakam averaged career highs across the board with 7.3 points, 4.5 rebounds and 2.0 assists per contest. He scored in double figures on 24 separate occasions during the regular season. Siakam scored a career-high 20 points at Golden State on Oct. 25. He snared a season-best nine rebounds on Apr. 8 against the Orlando Magic. On Feb. 28, the New Mexico State product arguably had the best game of his season when he delivered 14 points on 7-of-9 shooting, six rebounds, four assists, two steals and a block during a win at Orlando. The Raptors finished 59-23 and defeated the Wizards in the first round of the playoffs before losing to Cleveland in the second round. "Spicy P" appeared in all 10 of Toronto's playoff games that season. He averaged 6.6 points and 3.6 rebounds per playoff clash. Siakam had his best game of the playoffs in the series-clinching win over the Wizards. In that Game 6, Siakam tallied 11 points, eight rebounds and two blocks, helping the Raptors move on to the second round of the playoffs.

2016

Siakam was selected in the first round (27th pick) of the 2016 NBA Draft by the Raptors. The rookie out of New Mexico State appeared in 55 games for Toronto, making 38 starts and averaging 15.6 minutes per contest. Siakam's NBA debut occurred on Opening Night, Oct. 26, during a home win over Detroit. The rookie started and delivered four points, nine rebounds and one steal over 22 minutes. "Spicy P" started the Raptors' first 34 games of the season, posting per-game averages of 4.9 points, 3.6 rebounds and 0.9 blocks in 18.5 minutes during that span. Later in the year, his minutes were more limited, particularly after the Raptors acquired veterans Serge Ibaka and P.J. Tucker at the trade deadline. Over the last 48 games of the regular season, Siakam appear in 21 contests (four starts) and averaged 11.0 minutes per game. The Raptors ended the season 51-31 and defeated the Bucks in the first round of the playoffs, but lost to Cleveland in the second round. Siakam made his NBA playoff debut in Game 1 of the series against the Cavs, picking up two rebounds in 3:18 on the court.

Siakam built upon his Most Improved Player campaign, upping his stats again in 2019-20, making the All-Star game and an All-NBA team (second) for the first time following the departure of Kawhi Leonard to the Clippers. The young forward managed career highs nearly across the board, averaging 22.9 points, 7.3 rebounds, 3.5 assists and 1.9 combined steals-plus-blocks across 35.2 minutes. He also secured 12 double-doubles across his 60 appearances, including what was arguably the best game of his career, posting 37 points (12-19 FG, 5-9 3Pt, 8-8 FT), 12 rebounds, three assists and three blocks with just two turnovers in 38 minutes against the Suns. Siakam's role is secure heading into 2020-21, and there's an opportunity for it to increase as well if the franchise shifts into a younger rebuild with him at the helm. With that in mind, fantasy managers should feel comfortable drafting Siakam in the third round, if not sooner, given that's where his production placed his value last season.
Siakam broke out during his third year in the league, winning the 2018-19 Most Improved Player award. He became a full-time starter and saw his usage rise to 23.1 percent from 14.4 percent the previous season. Across his 80 appearances, he averaged 16.9 points, 6.9 rebounds and 3.1 assists in 31.9 minutes. Siakam was extremely efficient in the process, ranking 16th in the NBA in true shooting percentage (62.8). He put together some big games, dropping at least 30 points on five occasions, plus a 40-point outing, as well as accumulating 18 games with double-digit rebounds and 17 games with more than four assists. With Kawhi Leonard leaving the Raptors over the offseason to play with the Clippers, Siakam may be in line for another leap forward. With Leonard off the court last season, Siakam averaged 20.2 points, 8.3 rebounds, 3.6 assists and a combined 1.9 steals/blocks per 36 minutes. It's possible Siakam's efficiency will suffer on a worse version of Toronto, but he should be one of the main offensive options alongside Kyle Lowry and Marc Gasol.
After playing just 55 games as a rookie, Siakam saw his role grow in his second season in Toronto. He averaged a career-high 20.7 minutes, while adding 7.3 points, 4.5 rebounds and 2.0 assists across 81 games. He finished with a 50.8 percent clip from the field and while he attempted to extend his range (29 attempts), the experiment didn't exactly go well and he shot just 22.0 percent from three-point land. Still, Siakam provided plenty of energy and has a ton of athleticism, so the Raptors could try and tap into that more during the upcoming season. The third-year big man does appear to have an opportunity for more playing time following the organization's big offseason. DeMar DeRozan and Jakob Poeltl were traded to the Spurs in exchange for superstar Kawhi Leonard and Danny Green. Poeltl's departure, specifically, should afford Siakam more frontcourt minutes considering the Raptors didn't bring any bigs back in the deal. While Siakam will need to continue to develop his shot and become a much more productive three-point shooter, the added workload could boost his numbers elsewhere across the stat sheet and he'll have every chance to take the next step forward in his development. However, his Fantasy expectations shouldn't be too high and he'll still likely be avoidable in all but the deepest of leagues.
Siakam was drafted out New Mexico State with the 27th pick of the 2017 NBA Draft and saw plenty of opportunities to contribute during his rookie campaign. The 23-year-old end up starting 38 of the 55 games he played in, but struggled mightily to make much of an impact and averaged just 4.2 points and 3.4 rebounds across 15.6 minutes. Due to his struggles, the Raptors ended up scaling down his playing time as the season wore down and after the Raptors added both P.J. Tucker and Serge Ibaka at the trade deadline, Siakam was essentially a non-factor in the team's regular rotation. Other than Tucker, the Raptors have nearly the exact same roster from a season ago, as they re-signed both Kyle Lowry and Ibaka. That means Siakam is going to be stuck in a reserve role yet again, so it's unlikely he'll see improvement on his rookie year numbers unless an injury occurs higher up on the depth chart. Look for Siakam to battle both Lucas Nogueira and Jakob Poeltl for minutes off the bench in the frontcourt.
Siakam, a 6-foot-10 power forward out of New Mexico State, was the Raptors' second first-round selection of the 2016 NBA Draft, settling in as the No. 27 overall selection. Siakam turned in impressive averages of 20.4 points (on 53.6% shooting from the field), 11.8 rebounds and 2.2 blocks per game last season, though as a small-school product, the big man's numbers carry the stigma of mostly coming against low-level competition. His draft stock didn't really begin to take off until he shined during the measurements portion of the NBA Combine. Siakam checked in with a huge 7-foot-3.25 wingspan, and that coupled with the non-stop hustle he displayed in workouts and games would seemingly make him a good candidate to eventually serve as a rotational big man at the next level. While Siakam's physical advantages worked for him against shorter players in college, he could have trouble exerting his will in the NBA, particularly on the offensive end. With Jared Sullinger and Patrick Patterson in the fold to handle the bulk of the minutes at power forward, Siakam won't be asked to see regular time as a rookie. However, since neither of those veterans are under contract beyond 2016-17, Siakam could have a clear path to a rotation spot as soon as next season, but his ceiling is fairly limited as a player more reliant on effort than raw talent.
