Olympiacos Piraeus returned to Greece from Moscow and the EuroLeague win over CSKA with three doubtful players ahead of the Round 6 game against Maccabi Tel Aviv at home Friday (11/1).

Per club sources, center Nikola Milutinov, forward/center Aug Rubit and forward Mindaugas Kuzminskas are suffering from gastroenteritis and may not play in the match vs. Maccabi. Kuzminskas has been hospitalized.

In the meantime, forward Kostas Papanikolaou underwent an MRI following his right-knee injury during the first half of the game vs. CSKA and the results came back clean. The Greek player will be out against the “Yellows”.

Olympiacos is 2-3 after the victory in Russia. Maccabi and former Reds coach Giannis Sfairopoulos will travel to Piraeus with a 3-2 record after beating Fenerbahce Beko and capturing its third straight EuroLeague win.
