Pascal Siakam, Marc Gasol and Norman Powell are still 'a ways away' from returning from injury, says Toronto Raptors head coach Nick Nurse

It's still unknown when the Toronto Raptors will be getting Pascal Siakam, Marc Gasol and Norman Powell back from injuries.

Prior to Toronto's game against the Cleveland Cavaliers on New Year's Eve, Raptors head coach Nick Nurse told the media that the three of them are "all improving" but that they're still "a ways away."

The Raptors have been without Siakam, Gasol and Powell since Dec. 18, when they each exited the same game with different injuries. Siakam hurt his groin in the win, while Gasol suffered a hamstring injury and Powell a shoulder injury.

It was later announced that they would each be out indefinitely.

Siakam has been the team's leading scorer this season with a career-best 25.1 points per game. He's taken his game to another level once again, to the point where he's a likely first-time All-Star, as well as an early MVP candidate.

Powell is having a career year himself, averaging 14.4 points per game. He stepped up in a big way in the games Kyle Lowry and Fred VanVleet missed with injuries as Toronto's starting shooting guard.

Gasol is averaging a career-low 6.6 points per game, but he's been the key to Toronto's success defensively.

Entering Tuesday's game, the Raptors are 3-3 since losing Siakam, Powell and Gasol to injuries.
