Olympiacos welcomes back some key players but sees another one getting sidelined.

After fully recovering from their respective injuries, forward Giorgos Printezis, center Nikola Milutinov and guard Vangelis Mantzaris are back in Olympiacos practices and cleared to play in the EuroLeague against Olimpia Milano, Friday.

These “happy returns” however are contrasted by the new injury problem that the Reds will have to cope with since guard Brian Roberts strained his bicep muscle and will stay out of the match vs the Italian team.

Olympiacos will look to get back on a winning track after losing to Zalgiris Kaunas last week. They are second in the standings with 11-4.

In the meantime, Olimpia Milano will travel to Piraeus with newly acquired Mindaugas Kuzminskas in the squad and will look to bounce back from the horrid 1 – 6 record in the last seven games that has dropped them to the last place of the standings with 4 – 11.
