In brief: Not usually

But do you have Piriformis Syndrome, which could result in peripheral sciatica? Visit an osteopathic specialist, and get this both diagnosed and treated.

In brief: No

The sacroiliac joint is ligamentously very closed and stable.
But if the inflammation is severe enough it can irritate elements of the sciatic nerve which is nearby. a sclerotic sacroiliac joint is very important in the diagnosis of arthritic diseases
