    Now, Serge Ibaka Could Miss Some Time for the Thunder Too

    And still no telling how soon Durant will be back, although it could be next week.

    Serge Ibaka needs a procedure on his right knee and will be out for an undetermined amount of time, sources told ESPN.com.

    Ibaka, who has missed the last two games, will visit a specialist "with the expectation for him to have a clean-out procedure in order to be ready for the postseason." The Thunder have confirmed Ibaka will see a specialist in New York, but the team has not updated his status beyond that.

    Serge Ibaka will miss the next 4-6 weeks of action after undergoing arthroscopic surgery to help eliminate persistent soreness in his right knee.

    Enes Kanter, Steven Adams, Mitch McGary, and Nick Collison will all be asked to help fill the void with Ibaka sidelined, and Russell Westbrook will somehow be asked to do more than what he's already been doing. For what it's worth, Thunder GM Sam Presti said an MRI revealed no structural damage to Serge’s knee, and there aren't expected to be any long-term consequences with this procedure.

    basketball players in the NBA are the biggest pussies on the face of the earth. Every other game someone is "resting" they need to go back to paying these guys per game.

    it will certainly hurt them defensively. Whatever touches he did get will just go to the black holes of possession that are westbrook, kanter, waiters and durant when he returns.

    Thunder dropping like flies:

    Enes Kanter (ankle) had a bad limp following Wednesday's game against the Celtics.

    He was using a team employee as a crutch and couldn't put much weight on his left foot. At this point, it looks like Kanter is going to miss Friday's game, so there will be a ton of minutes going to Steven Adams. Besides him, there are not really many adds to make with Kevin Durant (foot) likely back for Friday.

    Such a bummer with Durant being shut down for the season. Could be his last season in OKC coming up.

    Ibaka is a cheap shot artist. Him on the sideline means less overall injuries for the NBA.
