Serge Ibaka injury will cause him to miss series vs Spurs, and beyond
The Thunder on Friday evening announced that its starting power forward is expected to miss the remainder of the postseason with a left calf injury. He sustained the injury midway through the third quarter of Thursday night’s series-clinching Game 6 victory over the Clippers in Los Angeles.
The timing couldn’t be worse, as the Thunder is two days from opening the Western Conference Finals at San Antonio. A once-promising season now appears to be in peril because of nothing more than a freak accident.
“It’s not something that we have great clarity on as to a specific event or acute incident,” Thunder general manager Sam Presti said when asked the source of Ibaka’s injury.
