Olympiacos captain Kostas Papanikolaou expected to miss Game 4 vs Panathinaikos

Olympiacos captain Kostas Papanikolaou is expected to miss Game 4 of the Greek Basket League Finals vs Panathinaikos on Thursday.

The Greek forward is dealing with a calf injury he sustained on Sunday’s Game 3 and didn’t play at all in the second half to avoid any re-aggravation.

After the game, Kostas Papanikolaou underwent an MRI, which revealed a first-degree calf concussion. Hence, he is doubtful for Thursday’s game and it is not likely he will play, given that the game will be played in 72 hours.
