Real Madrid head coach Pablo Laso addressed the possibility of Panathinaikos leader Nick Calathes missing Game 3, due to injury.

“I’m more worried about Madrid, because I don’t believe these stories. We are talking about the playoffs and I am worried about my team. Tomorrow I expect the best Panathinaikos version.

Neither was Gist going to play the first one and he played. I try not to be misled by anything that we can’t control,” the experienced coach told reporters.

Calathes’ presence in the match is considered doubtful, after missing part of Sunday’s (21/04) practice, due to a leg soreness.

Game 3 will be played at the sold-out Olympic Athletic Sports Center in Athens on Tuesday (23/04).
