News Team

Nikola Milutinov, a key player for Olympiacos, might not be able to play in the upcoming match against Real Madrid due to an injury he sustained during a game against Panathinaikos. He had to leave the game early and will undergo medical tests to determine the severity of his injury.

The injury occurred when Milutinov sprained his left ankle while defending and accidentally stepped on his teammate Kostas Papanikolau. He was in obvious pain and had to be helped off the court. It is suspected that he may have a sprain, and depending on the severity, he may or may not be able to play in the upcoming match at the WiZink Center.

Milutinov had just played an outstanding game, scoring 20 points, 20 rebounds, and achieving a PIR of 40 against Maccabi. This performance made him the MVP of the day and put him in the company of only three other players who have achieved such a double-double in the history of the Euroleague.

In addition to Milutinov’s potential absence, Olympiacos may also be missing other key players due to injuries. Real Madrid will be without Walter Tavares and Sergio Llull, who are both dealing with their own injuries.

The absence of Milutinov would be a significant blow to Olympiacos, as he is a star center for the team. His presence on the court is crucial for their performance, and his potential absence could impact the outcome of the match against Real Madrid.

It remains to be seen what the results of Milutinov’s medical tests will reveal and whether he will be able to recover in time for the match. Olympiacos will be hoping for a positive outcome, as they face a tough challenge against Real Madrid and will need all their key players available for the game.
