Panathinaikos OPAP Athens game against Zalgiris Kaunas on Thursday will go ahead as scheduled, as the Greek powerhouse will have 9 available players.

Zalgiris head coach Jure Zdovc had a press conference before the game, where he revealed that the Lithuanians champions will fly to Greece, adding which Panathinaikos players will be missing.

"Nemanja Nedovic, Leonidas Kaselakis and Jeremy Evans. Howard Sant-Roos (should miss the game as well), but maybe he can show up, but he's the player who hasn't played for ten days or so," Zdovc said.

Nedovic averages 10.8 points, 1.3 rebounds, 2.7 assists, and 9.2 PIR. Meanwhile, Sant-Roos contributes 7.4 points, 2.6 rebounds, 1.6 assists, and 8.3 PIR per game.

Soon after the Zdovc press conference, Panathinaikos announced that another staff member tested positive.

Including all Panathinaikos players and staff members, the total number of positive cases increased to seven.

Speaking of Zalgiris, the Lithuanian powerhouse welcomed back their captain Paulius Jankunas, who recovered after meniscus surgery. Joffrey Lauvergne and Regimantas Miniotas continue their rehab with long-term injuries.

However, Zoran Dragic is not in the 12-man roster and will miss the second consecutive game, and as Zdovc said himself, it was his decision.

"Zoran is not in the 12-man roster," Zdovc said. "It was my decision, we didn't take him to the game against Utena Juventus, because it was a preparation match for the game against Panathinaikos. He is still with the team and practices well."
