After a series-saving performance in Game 3, Serge Ibaka should be right back in the starting lineup for the Thunder come Tuesday.
Ibaka didn't practice Monday, but received treatment from the Thunder staff and says he fully expects to play in Game 4 Tuesday in Oklahoma City.
Ibaka returned for Game 3 against the San Antonio Spurs after missing the first two games of the Western Conference Finals with a calf injury. With Ibaka in the lineup, the Thunder's defense held the Spurs to their lowest scoring output of the three games and just 39.6 percent shooting.
Ibaka had 15 points, seven rebounds and four blocks in 30 minutes Sunday night, but had to leave the court several times during Game 3 for treatment.
