Panathinaikos Athens guard Stefan Jovic suffered a muscle sprain and will miss at least the upcoming EuroLeague game against his former team Crvena Zvezda Friday (25/2).

Jovic was hurt during the Greek Cup Final loss to Olympiacos Piraeus Sunday (20/2). The Serbian guard felt discomfort after the game and the medical examinations revealed a strain on his adductor.

While Panathinaikos comes from a defeat in the Cup, Zvezda travels to Greece carrying the momentum of a rout over archrival Partizan Belgrade in the Serbian Korac Cup Final.

Zvezda had won the first-leg game vs. Panathinaikos 81 – 48 in the biggest loss for the Greens in EuroLeague, margin-wise. The Serbian club is 9 – 14 and 13th in the EuroLeague standings while their opponents stand at the 17th spot with a 6 – 17 record.
