Serge Ibaka will miss the remainder of the 2014 postseason with a left calf injury.
The Thunder eliminated the Clippers (4-2) from the playoffs with their Game 6 victory Thursday night, but unfortunately it came at the expense of their starting power forward who has been diagnosed with a Grade 2 calf strain. OKC will now be forced to face a Spurs team who finished with the best record in the Western Conference without Ibaka, who lead the NBA in total blocked shots for the fourth consecutive season, and instead will lean on offensively challenged veteran Nick Collins and rookie Steven Adams to pick up the slack, good luck with that against arguably the best power forward ever in Spurs Tim Duncan.ANALYST: Michael Pichan
Yankees grant RHP Scott Baker his unconditional release.
Baker was enjoying a serviceable career when he was with the Twins, but Tommy John surgery in 2012 derailed his career. He has yet to return to that form he exhibited when he was a starter in Minnesota and the Yankees have released the 33-year old. Baker could get signed by a team who believes that they can jump start his spiraling career. Analysis: Colby Conway
