Serge Ibaka scored 20 points on 9-of-12 shooting vs. Chicago on Wednesday, with seven rebounds, two assists, two blocks and two 3-pointers.
Ibaka looked sharp throughout this game and did his damage in just 26 minutes -- he might have played more but it wasn't necessary in a lopsided road win. This was his highest-scoring game since Jan. 5 and owners can only hope that the extended break allows him to come back refreshed for Toronto's final 25 regular-season games. Feb 14 - 11:50 PM

Serge Ibaka was terrible yet again on Sunday, scoring seven points on 3-of-7 shooting to go with five rebounds, one 3-pointer and one block over 23 minutes.

Ibaka’s numbers have been steadily trending in the wrong direction since December, and he’s been fairly awful for a month now with meager contributions of 10.5 points, 6.0 boards, 1.0 trey, 1.2 blocks and 1.0 turnover per game on 44.6% shooting in 28.0 minutes per contest. There are just too many bigs in the rotation in for the Raptors, so it’ll be tough for Ibaka to crack the 30-minute mark on most nights. His rest-of-season outlook in Toronto isn’t great.
Feb 4 - 3:24 PM

Serge Ibaka posted just seven points, five rebounds and an assist across 23 minutes in Friday's 130-105 win against the Trail Blazers.

Ibaka managed three personal fouls and gave way to Pascal Siakam for a good chunk of minutes. With the Raptors up by a significant margin for most of the game, the starters ended up playing lighter minutes in the second half, so Ibaka never was able to get started and help his fantasy owners. He'll look for better results Monday when Memphis pays a visit, one of three games in the upcoming week.
Feb 2 - 10:50 PM

Serge Ibaka was good for 11 points, nine rebounds and three blocked shots over 24 minutes in Sunday's win against the Lakers.

Ibaka had been struggling on the offensive end lately, but he was solid in this one. His three swats were also his most since he had three blocks back on Jan. 8 in Brooklyn. Hopefully this game spurs him on and his shooting woes are a thing of the past. He'll look to carry over the momentum into Tuesday's game against the Timberwolves.
Jan 28 - 9:40 PM

Serge Ibaka was invisible in Friday's win over the Spurs, scoring just four points (2-of-7 FGs) with seven rebounds and two assists in 30 minutes.

Ibaka usually guards the opponent's best frontcourt player, but coach Dwane Casey switched Jonas Valanciunas onto LaMarcus Aldridge pretty early into this game because Ibaka wasn't giving the Raptors anything. You have to wonder if his knee is acting up again, as he hasn't blocked a shot in four straight games and is shooting 35.1% from the field in that span. After a strong December, his value is trending down in a hurry.
Jan 19 - 9:55 PM

Serge Ibaka was very quiet on Wednesday with two points on 1-of-5 shooting, three rebounds, one assist and one turnover in 24 minutes.

Aside from sporadic DNPs, Ibaka has been a sneaky value this season for 8-cat and 9-cat owners, but he's struggling lately -- in his past four games he's averaging 9.0 points on 37.5% shooting, 4.5 rebounds, 0.8 assists, 0.8 threes, 0.5 blocks and 0.0 steals. If you want blocks, boards and a big man who won't hurt you anywhere, this is a good time to make buy-low offers.
Jan 17 - 11:56 PM

Serge Ibaka played just 17 minutes during Monday's loss to the 76ers, finishing with 10 points, five rebounds, two assists and nothing else.

The minutes were a season-low for Ibaka, and this is just another example of Dwane Casey not being afraid to mess with his frontcourt rotations when the starting bigs aren't giving him the energy he'd like. That said, Ibaka's playing time was trending towards the 30s through the month of January, so hopefully, Serge's minutes will be back in that range on Wednesday against Detroit. Jonas Valanciunas finished with eight points, five boards, one assist and two turnovers in 14 minutes.
Jan 15 - 4:02 PM

Serge Ibaka returned from his one-game suspension on Saturday with 14 points on 5-of-12 shooting, five rebounds and two 3-pointers in 29 minutes.

Ibaka contributed to Toronto's incredible second-half comeback, cutting what was once a 27-point deficit to just one point late in the fourth quarter, but they couldn't get over the hump. He didn't have any assists, steals or blocks tonight -- it's the fourth time all season that's happened, so owners can expect better vs. Philly on Monday.
Jan 13 - 11:18 PM

Serge Ibaka and James Johnson have each received a one-game suspension as a result of their altercation Tuesday night.

This was the expected outcome after the two players exchanged punches Tuesday in Toronto. Assuming Ibaka doesn't appeal his suspension, he will serve his suspension Thursday night vs. Cleveland. Pascal Siakam will likely draw the start in place of Ibaka and is an intriguing DFS option. Jakob Poeltl and Lucas Nogueira could also see additional minutes off the bench on Thursday.
Jan 10 - 4:12 PM

Serge Ibaka and James Johnson were both ejected on Tuesday.

Ibaka gave a little shove to Johnson and both players threw a punch just a moment after. It's possible that the NBA will suspend Ibaka, so consider him questionable for Thursday's game vs. the Cavaliers. If he does miss time, Pascal Siakam will see a bump in minutes and Jonas Valanciunas would benefit as well.
Jan 9 - 9:01 PM

Serge Ibaka double-doubled with 11 points, 12 rebounds, two steals, one triple and a season-high six blocks in 39 minutes against the Nets on Monday.

His five blocks were his most since he had six back on April 2, 2017. Ibaka didn’t have it going offensively and missed a couple easy looks, but we’re not about to complain about this line. He’s been flirting with top-30 value in 9-category leagues over the past month and is showing some bounce that he didn’t have earlier in the season. He gets a matchup with the Heat on Wednesday.
Jan 8 - 11:14 PM

Serge Ibaka posted 21 points with five rebounds and a steal across 29 minutes in Friday's 129-110 win at Milwaukee.

Ibaka had a very efficient shooting night, going 8-of-12 from the field and 4-of-4 from the free-throw stripe. The only complaint from fantasy owners might be his lack of blocked shots. He finished with an impressive plus-35 rating and played sparingly into the fourth quarter with a lopsided score on the board. Next up is a favorable matchup on the road Monday against the defensively-challenged Nets.
Jan 5 - 10:45 PM

Serge Ibaka returned from a one-game suspension on Monday, posting 11 points on 5-of-19 shooting, eight rebounds, four blocks, two assists and two steals in 38 minutes.

Ibaka's rhythm was off all night offensively and he went 0-of-5 from deep, including some wide-open misses. The opposite was true on defense, however, as he came up with multiple key plays to fend off the Bucks in an eventual 131-127 home win. He played center down the stretch due to the Bucks' small lineups, and that versatility is partly why his minutes rose to 29.4 per game in December (from 26.8 in November).
Jan 1 - 10:55 PM

Serge Ibaka has been suspended for one game after a violation of team rules and will not play Friday vs. Atlanta.

This is because of an altercation with a Raptors staff member, but both the staff member and Ibaka have apologized. With him out tonight, we could see Pascal Siakam get into the starting lineup, or the Raptors did use C.J. Miles in the last game without Ibaka on Dec. 17. Siakam makes sense as a streamer or in DFS while Miles, Norman Powell and even Delon Wright will pick up some extra minutes with the Raptors going smaller.
Fri, Dec 29, 2017 05:07:00 PM

Serge Ibaka hit just 4-of-13 shots but still finished Tuesday's loss with 11 points, 12 rebounds and three blocks in 31 minutes.

He missed a 3-pointer that would have tied the game late, but it was close, going in and out. He was 0-for-4 from downtown tonight, making him 1-of-9 from deep over his last three games. Ibaka's having a fine season for the Raptors despite tonight's struggles.
