Prior to joining the German club, Hilliard spent a couple of EuroLeague seasons at CSKA and introduced himself through Baskonia in 2018-19. His pro career additionally features 91 NBA games played between the Detroit Pistons and San Antonio Spurs.

Leon Radosevic and Paul Zipser are also out for head coach Andrea Trinchieri. Zan Mark Sisko has been sidelined following coronavirus health and safety protocols but is set to be available for the EuroLeague Regular Season Round 13 home game opposite undermanned LDLC ASVEL Villeurbanne tonight (19:30 CET).

“We have a lot of respect for ASVEL,” noted the Italian boss, “They’re playing an outstanding season, so this will be a very, very difficult challenge for us.”

Bayern carries in a 5-7 record, a couple of wins short of ASVEL sitting at 7-5.
