Serge Ibaka has been ruled out for the game against the Dallas Mavericks on Wednesday night, due to a back injury.

Ibaka is dealing with a lower back tightness and will miss his second straight game.

The versatile big man got injured a few days ago and it is still unknown whether he will be available for the game against the Charlotte Hornets on Saturday.
