OKLAHOMA CITY – Oklahoma City Thunder forward Serge Ibaka reportedly underwent a successful surgery Tuesday.
Thunder officials say Ibaka underwent arthroscopic surgery to address soreness in his right knee.
“After monitoring the soreness in Serge’s knee and having taken several intermediate steps to assess and manage the discomfort, it was determined that the necessary next step in the evaluation was to see a specialist to discuss options to help alleviate the soreness and swelling he had been experiencing,” said Presti. “During the consultation with Dr. David Altchek, his recommendation, in agreement with Thunder medical personnel, Serge and his representatives, was for Serge to have arthroscopic surgery to remedy the problematic area.”
Officials say Ibaka will be out approximately four to six weeks.
