Ibaka Out For Rest Of Playoffs

By Randy Renner

Thunder forward Serge Ibaka is done for the playoffs after an MRI confirmed an injury to his left calf.

The Thunder did not go into detail about the injury other than to say Ibaka will not be able to recover in time to continue playing no matter how far the Thunder continues this playoff run.

Thunder GM Sam Presti released a statement late this afternoon.

“We are obviously disappointed for Serge, as he is a tremendous competitor, and we know how badly he wants to be on the court with his teammates,” said Presti. “At this point it is important that our team directs its concentration and energy towards preparation and execution for our upcoming series.  As with all teams, our group has confronted different challenges. It is our collective experience that we will call on to ensure that we play to our capabilities.”
