After practice on Sunday, Spurs players said that they’re preparing for Thunder forward Serge Ibaka to play. The Thunder announced on Friday that Ibaka is expected to miss the rest of the Playoffs, but the Spurs are erring on the side of caution. From the San Antonio Express-News:
Tony Parker is calling conspiracy theory on Ibaka injury. “I’ll believe it when I see it.”

Leonard not convinced Ibaka is out, either. Sounds like the Spurs are preparing for him to play, regardless of reports of his injury.
