Toronto Raptors centre Serge Ibaka builds home gym to stay in shape while in self-quarantine | Canada


Serge Ibaka is doing the most he can to stay in shape while he and the rest of the Toronto Raptors are in self-quarantine because of the coronavirus pandemic.

The 30-year-old shared two videos on social media over the weekend, the first of which showed him bringing a number of packages into his home.

The second revealed that he has built his “own little gym,” which includes a bike, bands and weights.

“I have to be home for 14 days, so for the next 14 days I can’t go out,” Ibaka said in the video. “In the meantime, I have to stay in shape, so I made my little gym here at my place.”

The Raptors released an updated statement on Saturday to announce that all members of the organization have tested negative for COVID-19. It was reported two days prior that the Raptors had informed their players to self-quarantine for the next 14 days. The Raptors said in the updated statement that “those who have been told to self-isolate will continue to do so.”

Before the season was suspended, Ibaka was averaging 16.0 points, 8.3 rebounds, 1.5 assists and 0.8 blocks per game. He was having a career year from the 3-point line, having made 39.8 percent of his shot attempts from the perimeter.
