Head coach Pablo Laso updated Real Madrid’s injury list heading to the next Turkish Airlines EuroLeague double-game week with the inclusion of Trey Thompkins and Carlos Alocen. After picking up injuries, both are considered questionable for tomorrow’s Regular Season Round 27 tilt opposite Khimki Moscow Region.

The Whites made the trip to Russia with 13 players, the 12 in action against Hereda San Pablo Burgos in Saturday’s ACB Regular Season Round 24 meeting plus Jeffery Taylor. The 31-year-old swingman is cleared to return ahead of the Khimki match and Thursday’s visit to Zenit Saint-Petersburg.

In complete contrast, Thompkins picked up his injury during the game versus Burgos, and Alocen was hurt in today’s practice. Rudy Fernandez, Sergio Llull, and Anthony Randolph remain sidelined.

The Spanish powerhouse is 16-10 tied with FC Bayern Munich in fourth place of Europe’s premier club continental competition.
