Oklahoma City Thunder PF Serge Ibaka says he is still not 100 percent after calf rupture.
Ibaka did cite progress in the healing, though, and still plans on playing for Spain in the World Cup of Basketball. However, expect the Thunder to get involved if he's not back at full health by the time the Cup rolls around in September. They're the ones who are paying him the big bucks, so they don;t want him doing anything that could jeopardize his season.ANALYST: Howard Bender
Tim Duncan (rest) will not play Friday against Denver.
The Spurs will take advantage of the holiday and give Duncan an extra day of rest and get ready for Saturday against the Hawks. The Spurs could go with LaMarcus Aldridge at center for Friday and use David West at power forward or they could just give Boris Diaw the start. Either way, those are the three players likely to see the extra work in Duncan's absence. Analysis: Howard Bender
