Serge Ibaka likely out for postseason with calf injury (Video)
The Oklahoma City Thunder said Friday that defensive star Serge Ibaka is expected to miss the rest of the postseason with a calf injury. The severity/extent of Ibaka’s calf injury is not known, but it has to be pretty darn bad for them to announce that.
The Thunder beat the Clippers on Thursday night to advance to the Western Conference finals. Ibaka left after suffering the calf injury on the play seen above.
This is the second season in a row where the Thunder suffered a major injury that will severely hurt their title chances. It’s between them and the Spurs for the Western Conference, and they had a good shot at taking it all. Now they have to hope Nick Collison can get the job done on the interior, though it will be extremely difficult for him to do what Ibaka did.
What a tough break for OKC.
