Los Angeles Clippers Center Serge Ibaka underwent back surgery in Los Angeles on Thursday, June 10. He will miss the remainder of the NBA after the season ends.
Ibaka has played 41 games for the Clippers this regular season, starting 39 times, averaging 11.1 points, 6.7 rebounds, and 1.8 assists in limited movement: 23.3 minutes per game. He missed two months of play, from mid-March through mid-May, but played just six minutes in the first round of Game Two against the Mavericks on May 25, and hasn’t been on the field since.
The Clippers are currently 0-2 behind to the Utah Jazz in the second-round playoff series.
