Serge Ibaka made 8-of-11 from the field for 23 points with 12 rebounds, one assist, two blocks and three 3-pointers in 33 minutes against the Wizards on Saturday.
He did a little bit of everything to help him get extra minutes, including closing next to Bebe Noguiera. Ibaka's 33 minutes today are the most he's played in a game that ended in regular since Feb. 1 against these Wizards. If the Raptors get a strong series from Serge this could be a quick round.

Serge Ibaka is fine and he will be available for Game 1 against the Wizards.

He got the night off on Wednesday, but did take a shot to his mouth earlier this week. Ibaka's minutes have come down because of the emergence of Pascal Siakam and Jakob Poeltl. It'll be interesting to see how coach Dwane Casey handles the minutes.
Apr 12 - 6:47 PM

Serge Ibaka (rest), Fred VanVleet (rest, back) and Lucas Nogueira (hamstring) will not play Monday against the Pistons.

Ibaka will be receiving a rest day on the second leg of this back-to-back set, but the Raptors should be getting DeMar DeRozan and Jonas Valanciunas back tonight. Pascal Siakam could be looking at a spot-start sans Ibaka, and there will be more minutes available for Jakob Poeltl with Bebe watching from the sidelines. Ibaka and FVV should be back in action for the Raptors' regular-season finale on Wednesday.

Serge Ibaka finished with a game-high 25 points over just 27 minutes in Friday's 93-72 rout of the Pacers.

Ibaka was a very efficient 10-of-13 from the field, including 5-of-7 from downtown, and he added eight rebounds with a steal and just one turnover for a plus-25 rating. It was his highest-scoring game as a member of the Raptors, too. All Toronto starters were plus-16 or better, leading to plenty of rest for the starters in the second half. Next up is a home date with the Magic on Sunday evening.
Apr 6 - 10:23 PM

Serge Ibaka scored 15 points on 7-of-13 shooting in Wednesday's easy win over the Celtics, adding six rebounds, one 3-pointer, two assists, one steal, two blocks and one turnover in 29 minutes.

Ibaka has been on a roll over the past five games, flirting with top-40 value in 9-cat leagues behind averages of 14.2 points, 8.4 rebounds, 1.8 triples, 1.8 blocks and 1.2 turnovers per game on 50.9% shooting. He's heating up at the right time in fantasy hoops, so hopefully, he can avoid getting randomly yanked by Dwane Casey over the final four games of the season.
Apr 5 - 12:03 AM

Serge Ibaka scored 15 points to go along with 10 rebounds and a blocked shot across 32 minutes in Saturday's 110-99 loss in Boston.

Ibaka was tremendously efficient from the field, going 5-of-7, including a perfect 3-of-3 from behind the arc. He also had an assist with just two turnovers and might have done more if not for five personal fouls keeping him on the pine for longer stretches in the second half. The outing marked just his second double-double in 20 games dating back to Feb. 14. He hasn't had back-to-back double-doubles all season. He'll look to remedy that situation on Tuesday in Cleveland.
Mar 31 - 10:11 PM

Kyle Lowry, DeMar DeRozan, OG Anunoby, Serge Ibaka and Jonas Valanciunas are listed as the starters for Wednesday against the Cavs on Wednesday.

This is a little bit of a surprise for Ibaka, who hasn't had a game off recently unlike Lowry and DeRozan. For now, plan on the Raptors giving their first unit decent work, but there's some risk in using them in DFS.
Mar 21 - 6:20 PM

Serge Ibaka couldn't get his shot to drop on Sunday, going 2-of-11 from the field and 2-of-2 from the line on his way to seven points over 29 minutes.

Ibaka added one 3-pointer, six rebounds, two assists, two steals and three turnovers while he was out there, but he really struggled to get anything going against OKC's defense. Jonas Valanciunas (who struggled with foul trouble) wasn't much better, finishing with 10 points, two boards, two assists, three turnovers and nothing else across 22 minutes, but we'd expect a bit of a bounce-back performance from both these guys on Tuesday in Orlando.
Mar 18 - 5:14 PM

Serge Ibaka was ejected in the second quarter on Wednesday, finishing with four points, two rebounds and three personal fouls in 12 minutes.

Ibaka and Blake Griffin were getting physical throughout the first half, and Ibaka took exception to a foul called on him. He didn't do anything demonstrative enough to warrant further punishment, though, and could even have a technical rescinded upon further review. On the plus side, he'll be very well rested for Friday's showdown with the visiting Rockets.
Mar 7 - 9:02 PM

Serge Ibaka had 17 points, eight rebounds, three blocks and one steal on Sunday, making 6-of-9 with three 3-pointers and zero turnovers.

Ibaka played 30 minutes tonight and this was a welcome sight after two single-digit scoring performances. Part of the problem is that Toronto's bench is thriving and they're blowing out teams on a routine basis, but Ibaka is still holding mid-round roto value for the past month. With four games on the schedule this week, he's an obvious lock in active lineups.
Mar 4 - 9:06 PM

Serge Ibaka finished Wednesday's game with nine points on 4-of-8 shooting, two rebounds, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer in 23 minutes.

Ibaka was red-hot over his previous five games, averaging 16.2 points (60.4% FGs, 100.0% FTs), 1.4 triples, 8.0 rebounds and 1.6 blocks. That pace was unsustainable, but owners still have to be encouraged. "[Ibaka] is stepping into his shot," said coach Dwane Casey. "He’s [also] doing a better job getting into the paint, making plays and spraying it out and finding people when they do run him off [the 3-point line]. That’s the next evolution of his game." Toronto has a nice rest-of-season schedule, with the exception of a two-game Week 24, and Ibaka is heating up at just the right time.

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.
