Toronto Raptors: Pascal Siakam, Nick Nurse out vs. Rockets due to health and safety protocols

Toronto Raptors were hit by the NBA’s health and safety protocols with Pascal Siakam and six members of the team’s staff being out vs. Rockets on Friday.

Among the coaches, who will miss the game is head coach Nick Nurse. Nurse will be replaced by his assistant Sergio Scariolo, who has plenty of experience as the primary head coach during his career in Europe.

Siakam has been the leading force of a very balanced Raptors’ team this season averaging a team-high 20.1 points per game with 7.5 boards and 4.8 assists.

Chris Boucher, who is excellent coming off the bench this season, will definitely start in forward, while OG Anunoby will also play some minutes as a ‘4’ with Toronto’s frontline undermanned.
