UPDATE: Ibaka probable to play in Game 3

UPDATE: Ibaka probable to play in Game 3

Serge Ibaka could return as early as Game 3, as reports surfaced on Thursday confirming his calf is healing ahead of schedule. Ibaka’s injury has been upgraded to day-to-day.

The following statement was issued today by Thunder Executive Vice President and General Manager Sam Presti:

“The abundance of blood and therefore swelling in Serge’s calf has reduced substantially and unexpectedly, allowing a level of movement and stability not thought possible after the initial diagnosis. Based on both imaging and physical exam, the considerable swelling in the calf indicated the likelihood of a certain degree of injury, and that established the original time frame for recovery.

At present, Serge has yet to complete a full basketball workout, but is walking and doing light basketball drills. With this new information, and in an effort to keep his status current, we are now listing him as day-to-day with the understanding that there is a possibility for him to play in this series.”
