Insight: Ibaka should be ready to go for the start of training camp, but if he doesn't play for Spain in September then we be concerned.

Insight: He's looking a lot closer to doubtful than probable. If Ibaka and his injured calf can't suit up Sunday versus San Antonio, Nick Collison (2.0 ppg this postseason) would draw another start at power forward.

Insight: It's a bit of a shocker as Ibaka was expected to miss the rest of the postseason after going down with a calf injury against the Clippers. The Thunder could certainly use him after getting blown out in the first two games. Nick Collison was ineffective starting at the four in Games 1 and 2 (1.0 ppg, 2.5 rpg).

Description: Thunder forward Serge Ibaka is expected to miss the rest of the 2014 postseason due to a left calf injury, according to the team's Twitter.
Insight: It's going to be very difficult for Oklahoma City to defeat San Antonio in the Western Conference Finals without Ibaka, who is the team's third best player. This is the second straight postseason the Thunder have lost a player to a significant injury; Russell Westbrook tore his meniscus in the first round last year.

Insight: Ibaka (13.2 ppg, 7.8 rpg this postseason) is known for giving cheap shots but he claims this one was unintentional. Adam Silver and the folks at the league offices must have believed him as he'll receive no further punishment.
