Bucks' Serge Ibaka: Not listed on injury report

Ibaka (illness) isn't listed on the team's injury report ahead of Wednesday's Game 5 in Boston. Ibaka was a healthy DNP during Game 3 and was sidelined for Game 4 due to a non-COVID illness. He's played just 3.8 minutes per contest during the playoffs, so while he'll be available, he's unlikely to garner a substantial role.

Bucks' Serge Ibaka: Scores 11 points in blowout win

Ibaka recorded 11 points (4-5 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 1-1 FT), five rebounds, two assists and one steal over 17 minutes during Thursday's 114-102 win over the Wizards. Ibaka scored 11 points for the second straight game, taking advantage of an inexperienced Wizards frontcourt. The veteran has been able to carve out a consistent role for himself since arriving in Milwaukee, albeit one that is not conducive to elite fantasy production. The return of Brook Lopez only complicates matters further, making Ibaka nothing more than a deeper league consideration.

Tristan Thompson and Serge Ibaka nearly come to blows during Bulls-Bucks

Tempers flared between Tristan Thompson and Serge Ibaka as the Milwaukee Bucks waxed the Chicago Bulls at Fiserv Forum. There wasn’t much of a game for Chicago Bulls fans to enjoy after the six-minute mark of the first quarter on Tuesday night. The game went from tied at 22 to a 43-24 Bucks lead in a blink of an eye. The Bucks dominated the game in the paint and from 3-point range in addition to controlling the tempo by holding the Bulls to zero fast break points.

Milwaukee Bucks: How Brook Lopez’s return impacts Serge Ibaka

Brook Lopez is scheduled to return on Monday for the Milwaukee Bucks. Lopez played in the team’s first game this season but has been out ever since with a back injury.

Serge Ibaka is showing why the Milwaukee Bucks acquired him

I’ll be honest, I was a little skeptical when Serge Ibaka was announced as the return in the Donte DiVincenzo trade for the Milwaukee Bucks at the trade deadline. Ibaka hadn’t looked great with the Los Angeles Clippers this season after coming back from offseason back surgery and that was to be expected. After some of the potential names that were being thrown around as a potential return for DiVincenzo, I was a little underwhelmed.

Bucks' Serge Ibaka: Drops 15 off bench

Ibaka accumulated 15 points (6-9 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 1-1 FT) and six rebounds across 17 minutes during Saturday's 122-109 loss to the Warriors. The veteran big man is starting to find his form with the Bucks, scoring in double digits in three of the last four games after a sluggish start to his Milwaukee tenure. Ibaka is averaging 11.3 points, 7.0 boards, 1.3 threes and 1.0 blocks in only 18.8 minutes a night over that stretch, and while he'll likely need more court time to maintain that pace, the production is similar to what he gave the Clippers last season.

The veteran played nine minutes in the first half, scoring 11 points (4-5 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 1-1 FT) and grabbing four boards.
