The Toronto Raptors might’ve taken it on the chin in 2020 due to some historic bad luck, but they were banking on the likes of Fred VanVleet, Pascal Siakam, and Chris Boucher turning things around in 2021 as they return to their Canadian digs in the hope of competing in what is a very competitive Atlantic division.

Unfortunately, before the Raptors genuinely kick-started their offseason plans in earnest, they were dealt some terrible injury news, as it is all but confirmed that they will start the season without the services of the supremely talented Siakam on the floor.
