Raptors' Siakam sits out a second straight game against Pacers with knee swelling

·1 min read

Toronto Raptors forward Pascal Siakam was sidelined for a second straight game against the Indiana Pacers with left knee swelling.

The all-star had complained about a nagging groin issue in two games last week against Miami before missing Sunday's 107-102 win over the Pacers with what the team said was a knee issue.

He's averaging 18.6 points, 8.1 rebounds and 4.7 assists in 14 games, bouncing back after early-season struggles.

Kyle Lowry was expected to return to the lineup Monday, coach Nick Nurse said in a pre-game availability with reporters.

The all-star guard missed both Monday's game and Friday's win against Miami with a toe injury.

Lowry has 18.2 points and 7.1 assists in 13 games this season.
