Raptors big Serge Ibaka tweets out frustrations with two second video

Serge Ibaka, Raptors

The 14-day self-isolation is slowly taking its toll on Toronto Raptors slotman Serge Ibaka.

Now halfway done on his coronavirus (COVID-19) quarantine, the Congolese-Spanish player made his frustrations known on social media on Monday.

Ibaka posted a two-second clip of himself rolling his eyes to the thought of spending seven more days holed up inside his home.

The Raptors, meanwhile, were among the five teams who played the Utah Jazz over the last 10 days prior to Rudy Gobert testing positive for COVID-19.

All Raptors players, coaches, and staff tested negative for the virus, but Ibaka was asked to self-quarantine as he spent a lot of time defending Gobert during their game last week.

The 30-year-old big man dropped 27 points, 13 rebounds, and three assists in 37 minutes of action in Toronto’s 101-92 win over Utah. He was lucky not to have obtained the virus from Gobert, who likely infected his teammate Donovan Mitchell and Detroit Pistons center Christian Wood.

Prior to the league-wide suspension, Ibaka was enjoying his best season in a Raptors uniform. In 50 games played, the seven-foot forward averaged 16.0 points and 8.3 rebounds while knocking down 51.8 percent of his field goals and 39.8 percent of his threes.

Apart from Ibaka, every NBA player has been advised to strictly follow social distancing and stay at home as much as possible. More and more players have been turning to video games and social media apps like TikTok to pass the time.

Serge Ibaka has been quite active on Twitter throughout his isolation, updating his followers about his daily routine. He even started a mini web series called “How Bored Are You?”, where he shared his home workout regime during the suspension.
