Panathinaikos swingman Matt Lojeski suffered a muscle strain on his left biceps during the EuroLeague game vs. Fenerbahce Friday (9/2), per information by the club.
According to Panathinaikos head coach Rick Pitino, Lojeski will be out for three to four weeks. Pitino joked on Twitter that he might need to play himself in light of his team’s many injury issues.
“Might need to suit up and get up to my Five Star days,” Pitino tweeted.
Apart from Lojeski, who will miss next Thursday’s (14/2) Panathinaikos’ Greek Cup semifinal against archrival Olympiacos, guards Keith Langford and Nikos Pappas are also out for the Greens.
Lojeski is averaging 7.3 points and 2.5 rebounds over 17:26 minutes per game in EuroLeague.
