LA Clippers’ Serge Ibaka undergoes back surgery, to miss rest of playoffs

LA Clippers big man Serge Ibaka will miss the rest of the playoffs after undergoing back surgery Thursday, the team announced.

Ibaka has not played since Game 2 of the first round due to his back issues. The 31-year-old had been a key offseason acquisition for the Clippers but was limited because of his back, missing 30 straight games near the end of the regular season and LA’s past seven playoff games.

He averaged 11.1 points and 6.7 rebounds per game in the regular season.

The Clippers trail the Utah Jazz 2-0 in their second-round series, with Game 3 on Saturday (8:30 p.m. ET, ABC).
