Serge Ibaka's presence was clearly missing in the Thunder's 122-105 Western Conference Finals Game 1 loss to the San Antonio Spurs on Monday. But the defensive wiz may be eying a comeback this postseason.

Yahoo Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski says that despite Scott Brooks' proclamations Monday night that Ibaka "won't be walking through that door," the Thunder forward is thinking about starting some stationary shooting this week. A league source tells Wojnarowski that Ibaka "understands his medical timetable couldn't possibly include a return to these conference finals," but that doesn't rule out Ibaka rallying back a la Willis Reed in the NBA Finals should the Thunder get there.

If the Thunder does make the NBA Finals, should Ibaka try to give it a go? Oklahoma City first has to get through San Antonio to even have a shot at getting Ibaka back.
