PHILADELPHIA — Toronto Raptors forward Pascal Siakam, who is nursing a right calf contusion, is playing in Game 4 of the conference semifinals between the Raptors and the 76ers on Sunday.

Raptors coach Nick Nurse had said that he was a game-time decision. Siakam tested the injury in pregame warmups.

“Obviously we had a team meeting this morning,” Nurse said. “He said it wasn’t any worse than it was. It’s a good start.”

Siakam bruised the calf in the Raptors’ 116-95 loss at Philadelphia in Game 3 on Thursday. He did not dress for the Raptors’ practice Saturday at Wells Fargo Center.

In Toronto’s eight games this postseason, Siakam has averaged 22.9 points, 7.4 rebounds and 2.5 assists, with an effective field goal percentage of 56.9.

Toronto trails the series 2-1.
