Team: Zalgiris Kaunas
Position: PG
Age: 25
Height: 196 cm
Weight: 91 kg
Birth place: Kinshasa, Congo (Republic of the)

Team captain Paulius Jankunas will be ready to play despite missing practices this week. Zalgiris originally said that Mudiay is also ready to play, but an ailing knee changed the guard's plans, and Mudiay will have to sit this one out.

Mudiay suffered an injury on Sunday when Zalgiris faced off against Siauliai-7bet in the Lithuanian Basketball League. Meanwhile, Jankunas was out since October 13, when he injured his calf playing against Crvena Zvezda mts Belgrade.

The Lithuanian champions will play without Joffrey Lauvergne and Janis Strelnieks tonight though.

Mudiay is averaging 8.8 points, 2.8 assists, 2.3 rebounds, 2.3 turnovers, and 6.3 PIR this season in the EuroLeague.

Jankunas is accumulating 1.0 points, 3.5 rebounds, and 1.5 PIR.
