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
Tigers are in discussions with Jordan Zimmermann.
There is nothing definite to this point, but reports have surfaced that Jordan Zimmermann is in "serious" discussions with the Tigers. Zimmermann would form a nice one-two punch with Justin Verlander atop the rotation in Detroit. Zimmermann was 13-10 in 2015 with a 3.66 ERA and 164 strikeouts in 201 2/3 innings pitched.
