Playoff R2G4: Toronto Raptors vs Philadelphia 76ers: Siakam is Doubtful, Will Lin Play?
With Raptors trailing 1-2 after Game 3 embarrassing 116-95 loss, Siakam is listed as doubtful with calf injury.
Nurse said there's nothing seriously or structurally wrong with Siakam's calf, stresses he hasn't been ruled out yet. He mentioned VanVleet, Powell, Ibaka and McCaw as potential starters if Pascal is out. "None of it is ideal matchup-wise."

The big question will be if Lin will play if Siakam cannot play or even to help the struggling bench unit. It’s unfortunate that Lin suffered back spasm in Game 3. Will Game 4 be the game that Lin can try to help the Raptors to win so they won’t trail 1-3 going back to Toronto for the elimination game?

Bench FG 24% so far in R2- the worst bench FG over the last 20 years.@JLin7 was out in G3 after DNP in G2. Though…he could get a look moving forward given the struggles of VanVleet who is just 1-11 in R2.
