The Toronto Raptors announced on Sunday that star forward Pascal Siakam is expected to miss at least the next two weeks with a right adductor muscle strain.

Siakam will be re-evaluated in two weeks and his condition will be updated appropriately.

The 28-year-old left Friday's loss to the Dallas Mavericks after slipping on the court and falling awkwardly.

Siakam has been one the NBA's best players to start the 2022-23 season, averaging 24.8 points, 9.3 rebounds and 7.7 assists, while shooting 47.9 percent from the field and 34.2 percent from three-point range. The Douala, Cameroon native has also recorded two triple-doubles so far this season.

With star guard Fred VanVleet still nursing a back injury, Toronto will turn to its young core of Scottie Barnes, OG Anunoby and Gary Trent Jr. to steady the ship and churn out results as injuries begin to mount.
