Oklahoma City Thunder coach Scott Brooks says center Serge Ibaka will start for the team in Game 3 of the Western Conference finals, according to Royce Young of ESPN.

Ibaka said after Game 1 he would not be available at all this series due to a left calf injury he suffered in the final game of the team's Western Conference semifinal victory over the Los Angeles Clippers. However, the team later announced he recovered ahead of schedule, and would be available for Game 3.

Brooks also said the team had no playing time limits for Ibaka in his return, although the center would likely spend much of his off-court time on a training bike.
