Serge Ibaka stepped up after Marc Gasol's injury, posting a season-high 25 points along with 13 rebounds, a steal and a 3-pointer in Wednesday's win over the Pistons.
Ibaka shot 10-for-18 in his 31 minutes and should be looking at similarly hefty workloads going forward, as Gasol left after a non-contact hamstring injury. He's only been a late-round player this season but could have a nice run of middle-round numbers upcoming, as he's about to return to the starting center role that suited him so well last year. Ibaka should be a lineup fixture going forward.
