Serge Ibaka injury update

| May 24, 2014

Serge Ibaka injury updateWill the Oklahoma City get their best defensive player, power forward Serge Ibaka, out with a calf injury, back during their Western Conference Finals series against the mighty San Antonio Spurs?

Probably. And an Ibaka return can't come soon enough.

The Thunder have looked empty without the service of Ibaka, who on offense stretches the floor with his shooting range, but on defense is OKC's most important player, providing shot-blocking and excellent indivdiual and team-help defense.

Playing without Ibaka, the Thunder currently trail the Spurs 2-0 in the series

Speaking to reporters at practice today, Ibaka didn't promise when or if he'd return. ""Well, right now I'm waiting for the team doctor to confirm, and also it's depending on whether I will go tomorrow, day by day, and see," said Ibaka when asked if he's going to play Game 3.

It's been tough for Ibaka to sit out and watch his squad struggle. "One thing I'm going to say, everybody - I've been hearing a lot of people saying my team lost two games because I was out. It's not true. It's not true. I believe in my guys. I believe in my teammates, that they can do better, with me or without me. It's not an excuse because Serge Ibaka was not there. It's just that San Antonio the first two games, they played better basketball. We need to give them a lot of credit. Right now our focus, my teammates and I, is about tomorrow's game, and I'm sure with me or without me they're going to do a better job."

Game 3 is Sunday night at 8:30 p.m. ET in Oklahoma City.
