Toronto Raptors injured big men Pascal Siakam and Marc Gasol are not close to their return to action.

The head coach of the defending champions, Nick Nurse, confirmed the news, while speaking to reporters.

Nurse said both players are “ways away” from their return to the floor, as Siakam is dealing with a groin injury and Gasol has suffered a hamstring injury.

The Raptors are at 23-11 in the standings.
