Forward Serge Ibaka is expected to sit out the remainder of the NBA playoffs after suffering a calf injury during the third quarter of the Thunder's series-clinching win over the Los Angeles Clippers on Thursday night in Los Angeles.
"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," Thunder executive vice president and general manager Sam Presti said.
"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."
