*In theory. The Raptors (27-45) were confoundingly disappointing this season.
Toronto can either re-sign the 35-year-old Lowry and try return to the playoffs. Or Toronto could let Lowry walk and reset with that young core and a lottery pick.
However, the win-now plan looks less appealing with Siakam sidelined into next season.
The Toronto Raptors announced Friday that Pascal Siakam underwent successful surgery last week to repair a torn labrum in his left shoulder. The surgery was performed by Dr. Neal ElAttrache at Kerlan-Jobe Orthopaedic Clinic in Los Angeles.
The injury to Siakam’s shoulder occurred May 8 vs. Memphis. The expected recovery and rehabilitation time for this procedure is approximately five months, and his condition will be updated as appropriate.
Josh Lewenberg of TSN:
With this timeline, Siakam would return about Nov. 11. Next regular season is scheduled to begin Oct. 19.
