Oklahoma City Thunder: Serge Ibaka expected to miss remainder of postseason with calf injury

It’s unclear who will start in Ibaka’s place. Veteran forward Nick Collison replaced Ibaka after the injury occurred.

This is the second straight postseason that the Thunder has had a starter suffer a season-ending injury. Last year, point guard Russell Westbrook sustained a torn lateral meniscus in the first round, an injury that derailed the Thunder’s title hopes.

Team officials did not make Ibaka available to the media after the game Thursday night. Ibaka was said to be “getting treatment” for the injury, and media members were ushered out while being instructed that the locker room was closing.

No players were available to the media Friday because the Thunder did not practice.

The Thunder will resume practice Saturday in Oklahoma City.
