Euroleague Basketball announced that the Disciplinary Judge has decided that Zenit St. Petersburg will lose Round 3 and 4 games against Baskonia and Valencia with a 0-20 score. Zenit didn’t have enough healthy players and, due to the big number of positive COVID-19 cases, the Russian club didn’t travel to Spain.

These are the first games this season that have not been held due to COVID-19.

Per Euroleague Basketball:

“The Euroleague Basketball Disciplinary Judge has declared that Zenit St. Petersburg loses by the result of zero to twenty (0-20) its Turkish Airlines EuroLeague Regular Season Round 3 and 4 games against TD Systems Baskonia Vitoria-Gasteiz and Valencia Basket, which were scheduled to be played on October 13 and 15, respectively.

The Disciplinary Judge has followed the 2020–21 Euroleague Basketball Special Regulations due to COVID-19 after Zenit St. Petersburg didn’t have at least eight players on the Authorisation List fit to play as a consequence of multiple players having tested positive for COVID-19.”
