Date:

Serge Ibaka stayed hot on Sunday, making 8-of-13 shots with four 3-pointers en route to 20 points, four rebounds, one assist and one block.

After a lull in early/mid November, the 28-year-old Ibaka is quietly re-establishing himself as a mid-round PF with upside. The quality of competition has been part of his recent success, but over the past four games he's averaging 18.8 points on 60.4% shooting, 3.3 triples, 5.0 rebounds and 1.8 blocks. Ibaka's swats are particularly nice to see, given that they've declined for seven consecutive seasons.
Dec 10 - 6:48 PM

Serge Ibaka finished with 21 points, two rebounds, an assist, a steal and a blocked shot in 27 minutes Friday in Memphis.

Ibaka was very efficient from the field, hitting 7-of-12, including 4-of-5 from behind the arc. He has been feeling it from the perimeter since flipping the calendar from November to December, hitting 9-of-14 (64.3 percent) on 3-pointers over the past three outings. He also has at least one blocked shot in eight straight contests.
Dec 9 - 12:18 AM

Serge Ibaka hit 8-of-13 shots and two 3-pointers for 19 points, six rebounds, one steal and three blocks in 33 minutes of Tuesday's win over the Suns.

It wasn't a season high for Ibaka, but it was close, as his best two scoring games prior were a 21-point effort way back on Oct. 21, and another 19-point game back on Nov. 9. Ibaka went six straight games with a total of one 3-pointer to end the month of November, but looks better in December, averaging 17 points, 7.0 rebounds, 2.5 blocks and 2.5 3-pointers on 14-of-23 shooting in his two games. Hopefully this is a sign that he's about ready to go on a hot run.
Dec 5 - 10:35 PM

Serge Ibaka posted 15 points with eight rebounds and two blocked shots across 25 minutes in Friday's 120-115 win against Indiana.

Ibaka was a very efficient 6-of-10 from the field, including 3-of-4 from long distance. The three triples were his most since he hit five 3-pointers against Philadelphia back on Oct. 21. It was a very nice game, but he'll have to do this a lot more frequently to live up to his 51.7 ADP.
Dec 1 - 11:43 PM

Serge Ibaka finished with 10 points, seven rebounds, one steal, and one block on 5-of-10 shooting in 27 minutes on Friday.

Ibaka also had five fouls and zero contributions from distance, so this is a pretty hollow line. Unfortunately, that's become more of an expectation than a surprise for some period of time now, and there is no evidence to suggest that's about to change anytime in the near future. Drafting Ibaka over names like Victor Oladipo, Clint Capela, and Aaron Gordon is already a regrettable move.
Nov 24 - 11:16 PM

Serge Ibaka (knee) returned from a one-game absence on Sunday, scoring nine points on 4-of-10 shooting to go with eight rebounds, one 3-pointer, one block and one turnover in 26 minutes.

The Raptors' frontcourt is an absolute mess, with Ibaka, Jonas Valanciunas, Pascal Siakam, Lucas Nogueira and Jakob Poeltl all vying for minutes, and it's beginning to look like a five-way timeshare with minutes falling to whoever happens to be performing best on that day. This was an okay, low-end line for Ibaka, but based on his 51.7 ADP, he's probably leaving a lot of his owners very frustrated this season.
Nov 19 - 6:39 PM

Serge Ibaka (swollen left knee) will play on Sunday vs. the Wizards.

He's back after a one-game absence. Ibaka said he hasn't been 100 percent since banging his knee against Boston on Nov. 12, but hopefully the time off helped. Season-long owners can get him active and there's no word of any restrictions. Pascal Siakam is likely headed back to the bench, but he'll be worth deploying in the future if/when Ibaka needs to miss a game.
Nov 19 - 1:49 PM

Serge Ibaka (swollen left knee) has been ruled out for Friday's game vs. the Knicks.

Ibaka has been experiencing soreness since banging his knee on Nov. 12 vs. Boston. He did play through the pain against the Pelicans and Rockets, but he didn't look right. With Ibaka sitting this one out, Paskal Siakam is worth a look if you need short-term help with averages of 14.7 points, 4.0 rebounds, 1.3 assists and 1.3 steals in three fill-in starts, while we should see more of OG Anunoby, and C.J. Miles as well.
Nov 17 - 6:32 PM

Serge Ibaka (swollen left knee) is not expected to play on Friday vs. the Knicks.

Ibaka banged his knee in a fall against Boston and has been sore ever since -- this may explain his poor play against the Pelicans and Rockets. With Ibaka likely to sit, Paskal Siakam is probably the biggest winner and has put up averages of 14.7 points, 4.0 rebounds, 1.3 assists and 1.3 steals in three fill-in starts.
Nov 17 - 6:16 PM

Serge Ibaka (swollen left knee) is questionable for Friday's game against the Knicks.

Ibaka missed one game earlier this season due to swelling his right knee, but this is the first time he's popped up on the injury report for an issue with his left knee. Pascal Siakam started in place of Ibaka that one game Serge missed. Norman Powell (hip) is doubtful, and Delon Wright (shoulder) has been ruled out for Friday, so the Raps will really have to shake up their lineup if Ibaka is unable to play. Siakam, OG Anunoby, and C.J. Miles would all see additional minutes.
Nov 17 - 12:26 PM

Serge Ibaka hit just 2-of-5 shots and a 3-pointer for five points, five rebounds and two blocks in 25 minutes of Tuesday's win over the Rockets.

Ibaka had just eight points, six boards, a steal, a block and a 3-pointer on Sunday, and has been a bit disappointing this season. He's averaging 11 points, 6.8 rebounds, 1.2 blocks and 1.8 3-pointers on 52 percent shooting over his last five games, meaning he's worth holding in all leagues. But he's a far cry from the fantasy beast he was a few years ago in OKC.
Nov 14 - 10:42 PM

Serge Ibaka was quiet in his 30 minutes of floor time on Sunday, scoring eight points on 3-of-4 shooting to go with six rebounds, one 3-pointer, one assist, one steal, one block and two turnovers.

The offense in Toronto runs through Kyle Lowry and DeMar DeRozan, leaving Ibaka and Jonas Valanciunas to fight over the scraps, and that's how things will continue to be for the Raptors as long as Dwane Casey is at the helm. Valanciunas finished with just six points, three boards and one turnover in his 18 minutes of action, and it's looking like top-75 value will be a best-case scenario for either of these guys.
Nov 12 - 7:00 PM

Serge Ibaka scored 19 points with eight rebounds, three assists, two blocks and three 3-pointers in 31 minutes against the Pelicans on Thursday.

It was one of his best games in the box score and in reality with some terrific defense against Anthony Davis. Ibaka has cleared the 30- minute mark just once on the season prior to his game, but he did play 29 minutes in each of his previous two games. He's not going to play 30 minutes often because the Raptors second unit is one of the best in basketball, but Ibaka is still flirting with mid-round value. He should be a fine hold all year as long as you're not expecting many lines like this gem.
Nov 9 - 10:25 PM

Serge Ibaka scored 11 points with three rebounds, one assist and one 3-pointer in 18 minutes against the Nuggets on Wednesday.

He missed one game for a minor knee issue, but garbage time explains the light playing time. Ibaka has surprisingly played 27.2 minutes per game in his previous outings, so he's been a small bargain in standard leagues.
