Zalgiris Kaunas lost another player due to an injury on Tuesday. Janis Strelnieks hurt his hamstring during the King Mindaugas Cup game against CBet Jonava.

Earlier on Tuesday, Arturas Milaknis, Tai Webster, and Paulius Jankunas were diagnosed with positive COVID-19 cases and were isolated from the team.

Zalgiris is traveling to Istanbul without Strelnieks on Wednesday, as EuroLeague Round 22 game against Fenerbahce is set to take place on Thursday.

After losing four main squad players Zalgiris will register three youngsters for the EuroLeague competition.

Titas Sargiunas and Liutauras Lelevicius, both 18-years-old, and 17-year-old Motiejus Krivas already had some practices with the main team this season but spent most of the time with the junior team playing in the second Lithuanian division.
