The trade-deadline acquisition rolled his left ankle when he landed on Giannis Antetokounmpo’s foot during the third quarter of the Raptors’ Game 1 loss. Ibaka remained in the game on Saturday and is optimistic about his chances to play tonight.
“It happened to me before, against Memphis [in the playoffs],” Ibaka said yesterday. “I played through it.”
