Toronto Raptors lose Pascal Siakam indefinitely with groin injury
The Toronto Raptors are down three players indefinitely following Wednesday’s game in Detroit.
While the Raptors won the game 112-99, they announced on Thursday that Pascal Siakam, along with Marc Gasol and Norman Powell, are all out indefinitely due to injuries.
“With 6:47 to play in the fourth quarter, Pascal Siakam sustained a stretched groin after an awkward landing,” said the Raptors in a release. “He was evaluated Thursday and will be listed as out indefinitely.”
Gasol sustained a strained left hamstring in the first quarter of play, and was determined he will be out indefinitely.

And Powell sustained a subluxation of the left shoulder after a collision with another player. He will also be out indefinitely.
All three players will be reevaluated over the coming weeks, according to the team.
The Raptors will continue on without the three players for the foreseeable future, which will likely include their marquee Christmas Day game against the Celtics.
