Serge Ibaka will not be available for the Los Angeles Clippers in the road game against the Dallas Mavericks on Monday night.

Ibaka is dealing with a back injury and has been ruled out for the second game of the Clippers back-to-back set.

Ibaka was forced to exit the game against the New Orleans Pelicans on Sunday due to a lower back tightness and didn’t return.

Clippers head coach Tyronn Lue said Ivica Zubac will replace Ibaka in the starting lineup.
