The player would liked to help the team, he traveled to Athens and was included in the pre-selection roster, but due to plantar fasciitis he will not be able to play. Sloukas needs rest, the plan of the Greek team was for him to have only therapy and play only in the possible semifinal or final of the tournament, however even this can’t be possible.
After the latest medical exams, it became evident that Sloukas wouldn’t be able to do not even that, he informed the coaching staff about his condition and he is out of the roster, which now stands at 14 players. His absence is confirmed by a press release of the Greek basketball federation.
