Olympiacos forward Kostas Papanikolaou will be for Game 1 (18/4) of the EuroLeague playoffs against Zalgiris Kaunas.

Forwards Giorgos Printezis and Kim Tillie, along with guard Janis Strelnieks were cleared to play in the match.

Papanikolaou still feels some disturbance from a left-knee tendonitis that was bothering him during the previous days and today (18/4), he was ruled out for the first quarterfinal battle vs. the Lithuanian side.

The 27-year-old Greek player has been averaging 8.2 points, 4.5 rebounds, 2.2 assists plus one steal over 24:29 minutes per game this EuroLeague season. His last EuroLeague game was in a home win over Brose Bamberg, on March 9.
