Ibaka good to go for Raptors' must-win playoff game tonight

Sep 9 2020, 2:51 pm

A day after he was listed as “questionable” with a left ankle sprain, Serge Ibaka will indeed play for the Toronto Raptors today.

Ibaka’s status has been officially upgraded to “available” by the Raptors ahead of a must-win playoff game. It remains to be seen how effective Ibaka can be, given he was wearing an ankle boot yesterday. The Raptors big man contributed just seven points and four rebounds in only 19 minutes of action in Game 5.

The season is on the line for the defending champions, who trail 3-2 in their series against the Boston Celtics after losing badly in Game 5. They’ll try to extend the series tonight at 6:30 pm ET/3:30 pm PT on Sportsnet.
