Olympiacos missing two key players for Baskonia clash

Olympiacos will be without two of its main contributors for their EuroLeague season opener against Baskonia.

The Liga Endesa side though will be at full strength for the EuroLeague opener.

Via Eurohoops:

Thursday’s (12/10) game between Olympiacos and Baskonia for Round 1 of the EuroLeague regular season won’t feature Vassilis Spanoulis.

Spanoulis has yet to recover from a left knee disturbance that also kept him out of the Greek League derby vs Panathinaikos. Thus he won’t travel to Heraklion, Crete, where the match will take place since Olympiacos had been sanctioned by EuroLeague to play one home game behind closed doors.

Brian Roberts, who also missed the clash with Panathinaikos, covered a section of today’s practice program but his status ahead of Baskonia remains questionable.
