“Unfortunately, we got some bad news about Strelnieks yesterday. He will remain out for the foreseeable future. He won’t be back anytime soon. Unfortunately,” the experienced coach said.

Olympiacos is on the brink of elimination and has to defeat the Turks at home in order to remain alive in the play-off race.
