Following a calf injury in the Thunder’s series against the Los Angeles Clippers, Ibaka was said to likely be out for the remainder of the postseason. But Ibaka progressed to the point that the Thunder will have him in the starting five tonight against San Antonio.
Brooks also announced that Reggie Jackson will get the start in the backcourt in place of Thabo Sefolosha.
