Raptors forward Pascal Siakam is expected to remain sidelined until after the All-Star break by the league’s health and safety protocols, per ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

Siakam was placed under those protocols on Friday and missed the team’s game against Houston. A majority of the coaching staff, including head coach Nick Nurse, also missed the game due to those restrictions.

Siakam is averaging 20.1 points, 7.5 rebounds and 4.8 assists per game this season. Toronto was able to get past the Rockets 122-111 with Chris Boucher taking his spot in the lineup. Yuta Watanabe received some additional playing time off the bench.

The Raptors, who are sitting at .500, have home dates with Chicago and Detroit and a road trip to Boston prior to the break.
