Was nice to spend time with @Serge Ibaka last month - he's a special guy. Also, VERY fun to talk hoops with him. Super-smart about the game.

Spencer Hawes

Watching #SonoftheCongo, an incredible story about @Serge Ibaka giving back. We have so much to be thankful for that we take for granted.

Lang Greene

How long has this Serge Ibaka short been out? The way he is hit up for $$$ when he goes back home ... man ...

Serge Ibaka said he was aiming to play in Game 3 of the first round.

Randy Renner

#Thunder forward Serge Ibaka says he was hoping "to play in game three," of the first round had his team made it in http://t.co/3NjKfqkBES

Anthony Slater

Kevin Durant on OKC's defensive woes with him/Ibaka out: "I look at myself as an elite defender, even if that's not my reputation."

Anthony Slater

Scott Brooks said Serge Ibaka wouldn't have been able to play the first few playoff games and likely not the entire first round.

Ethan Strauss

Obviously the Ibaka-less stretch factored in, but illustrative of value that the Thunder were sub-500 without Durant

Anthony Slater

The AD buzzer-beater overrated in its impact on Thunder. OT if he misses. Not a sure thing. Ibaka/Jackson missed 3 GWs in opening month.

Royce Young

Kevin Durant missed 55 games, Russell Westbrook 15 and Serge Ibaka 18 and the Thunder still won 45 games in the West.

Anthony Slater

Final tally: 220 missed games due to injury by the Thunder this season. Durant missed 54, Westbrook missed 15, Ibaka missed 17.

Anthony Slater

Today is the four week mark of Serge Ibaka's arthroscopic surgery, which came with 4-6 week timetable. What we know: He won't play tomorrow.

Jason Jones

But while we're at it ... what if the Thunder offers Durant AND Westbrook AND Ibaka for Cousins, J.T. and a second round pick?

Darnell Mayberry

Steven Adams out here looking like Serge Ibaka. Blocking everything at the rim.

Kurt Helin

Tom Haberstroh

Since Ibaka got hurt, OKC has hemorrhaged 110.2 points per 100 possessions. 2nd-worst in the league. Russ's ballhogging ain't the culprit.

Anthony Slater

Serge Ibaka ruled out for the rest of the regular season: newsok.com/article/5409677

Greg Rappaport

Scott Brooks clarifies that Serge Ibaka will not play for the remainder of the regular season.

Anthony Slater

Serge Ibaka is for sure out for the rest of the regular season, per Scott Brooks.

Royce Young

Scott Brooks just ruled Serge Ibaka out for the rest of the regular season games.

Mark Montieth

Easily overlooked detail: Serge Ibaka out today for OKC. He had 23 points (9-of-11 fg) and 10 rebounds in earlier meeting in February.

Anthony Slater

Scott Brooks asked about Serge Ibaka's increased court work, said he hasn't practiced and "I can guarantee he’s not playing next game.”

Royce Young

Serge Ibaka doing some pregame shooting. Brooks says he hasn't practiced yet and is definitely out both tonight and Sunday.

Nick Collison will go through a workout tomorrow and the Thunder will "see how he feels," per Scott Brooks. Serge Ibaka (knee) isn't close.

Tom Haberstroh

Habbie recipients include Russ, Harden, Kobe, CP3, Hassan Whiteside, Z-Bo, Wiggins, Ibaka, Nerlens, Dirk, etc. es.pn/1ydkauP [in]

Darnell Mayberry

Who do y'all think has a better roster: Houston without Dwight Howard, or OKC without Durant and Ibaka?

Andrew A. McNeill

Via @SBNation and @_MarcusD, so glad Serge Ibaka didn't wear this jacket to his @Grantland33 premiere at #SXsports: http://t.co/lsSWI7rMQ9

Jorge Sierra

I like Serge Ibaka's jacket better than the Thunder's play so far.

Randy Renner

A little bit more lift on that Serge Ibaka jumper. Most I've seen him do with that right leg http://t.co/2PsiGfbiiv

#Thunder coach Scott Brooks says Andre Roberson participated in some of practice today, so he's getting close. Ibaka and Collison did not
