Olympiacos Piraeus will host ALBA Berlin at the Peace and Friendship Stadium with two of his core players dealing with injury issues.

The Greek team will line up for the EuroLeague Round 6 game without Hassan Martin. The American center is suffering from knee discomfort, which kept him out of last Sunday's Greek League game against Iraklis. After the tests, to which Martin has been submitted, fluid was found in his knee.

Olympiacos's coach Giorgos Bartzokas commented on the issue: "He will not be playing tomorrow and his condition needs attention because both his knees have been burdened.  One of our two centers being out is a problem for us, especially considering the number of games we have. It concerns me, but at the moment we don't have time to think about it, since the games are non-stop".

However, Martin might not be the only absentee for Olympiacos in the upcoming game. Kostas Papanikolaou got unlucky again and had to sit out almost through the entire game at Thessaloniki due to a knee injury. The first tests showed that his condition is not worrisome, but it remains doubtful whether the Greek international forward will be cleared to play against ALBA.
