Ibaka a ‘no comment’ on Jackson statements

If we are going to hear anything from Oklahoma City Thunder big man Serge Ibaka regarding San Antonio Spurs forward Stephen Jackson's comments towards him on Twitter recently, it'll have to wait for next Monday at Chesapeake Energy Arena in Oklahoma City where Ibaka's Thunder will matchup with Jackson's Spurs.

Thunder beat writer Darnell Mayberry said Ibaka declined to discuss Jackson's comments recently. 

As we reported on Project Spurs, Jackson has been fined $25,000 for his comments and threat to Ibaka.

While Jackson could still be sidelined due to injury with the original prognosis having him out until late this month, it could certainly make for must-see TV if Jackson makes an earlier return in time for the Thunder game.

However, knowing everything that has been said, I would be surprised if Jackson is activated for the game even if he is considered "probable."

The Spurs will look to put this behind them as they take on the Rockets in Houston tonight
