The Toronto Raptors will be without forward Serge Ibaka for Friday night’s game against the Atlanta Hawks. The team suspended the 28-year-old after he was involved in an altercation with a staff member.

The team sent out a press release detailing their decision. It did not get into specifics about the altercation, but said both sides have apologized.


Ibaka and the staff member got into it following Wednesday’s 124-107 loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Ibaka is averaging 13.8 points and 6.0 rebounds per game. He’ll be eligible to return when the Raptors take on the Milwaukee Bucks on Monday.
