Shouldn't he at least miss a game for "return to competition reconditioning?"

They saw what the competitive condition was like against Miami and are now trying to avoid that.

Toronto is really tough. I only recently started regularly watching them once Siakam returned.

Much like the Heat, they play hard and they’re well coached. The difference is they don’t shoot like Miami, so maybe the Suns won’t get embarrassed.

They have this fun all 6’8 lineup sometimes. Although Barnes being out makes that harder as him and Banton are the primary ball handlers in that situation.

That is my assumption, too. And he if tests positive in Toronto, he isn't allowed back into the country for a while, right?

It could be why he also hasn't been kept by teams, as they don't want to have to deal with those hassles with a guy that is near the end of the bench.

I don’t think he can even play in Toronto if he’s unvaxxed, so no point in going and possibly getting stuck

You can see his teammates getting frustrated with him.

Booker is too, but at least the effort is there.

Real sloppy 3rd Q, I did love CP3 just ripping the ball out of Siakam’s hands
