Maccabi Tel Aviv center Othello Hunter will miss the EuroLeague game of his team against Zalgiris Kaunas Thursday (25/3) due to leg pain.

While Maccabi is 11 – 17 and eliminated from playoffs contention, this upcoming match is crucial for Zalgiris since the Lithuanian side is currently sitting at a 15-15 record and the 11th place in the EuroLeague standings with four games remaining in the regular season. Zenit St. Petersburg, Baskonia and Valencia have one win more than Zalgiris and are tied for eighth place.

Hunter is averaging 8.2 points, 5.3 rebounds and 1.1 assists in the EuroLeague season so far.
