Serge Ibaka PF/C OKC 1 Month

Ibaka scored 25 points (11-14 FG, 3-6 3Pt) and grabbed 11 rebounds in 46 minutes against the Raptors Tuesday.

The Thunder are suffering through an almost unbelievable rash of injuries to start 2014-15, and Ibaka is being asked to carry a greater role as a result. Perhaps it it because of those increased offensive responsibilities that Ibaka's most well-known skill, his shot blocking, has declined to mere mortal levels. Ibaka has blocked two shots or more only twice in five games. Fortunately for his owners, and for the Thunder, Ibaka is continuing to produce in other areas, even if his shot blocking is not as prolific as it used to be.

Ibaka registered 15 points (7-11 FG, 1-2 3Pt), nine rebounds, one assist, one steal, and two blocked shots while turning the ball over once in 29 minutes of play.

Ibaka was very efficient tonight shooting 64% from the field. He is one of the few bright spots in an otherwise injury depleted Thunder roster. Continue to roll with him in all leagues.

Coach Scott Brooks limited his minutes, holding him to 21 against the Raptors and 25 against the T'Wolves. Ibaka struggled from the field (4-12 FG) Friday, finishing with eight points and six rebounds. He found his stride Sunday, however, connecting on 5-of-7 field goal attempts and finishing with 12 points, six rebounds and two blocks. Ibaka also converted his only three-point attempt.

Ibaka should be in line for an increase in offensive opportunities with Kevin Durant (foot) out up to two months

With Durant out, his shot attempts need to go to other players on the team until he returns. Ibaka is the team's best scoring big man, and should see a nice uptick in shots during the beginning of the season. Expect his numbers to be close to the stats he posted last year when Russell Westbrook missed time.
