Milutinov injured his knee during CSKA Moscow's first game at the Turkish Airlines EuroLeague against AX Armani Exchange Milan. Meanwhile, Grigonis has been out of the lineup due to back pain.

In CSKA's special show Match TV, the team president Andrey Vatutin revealed when the two players would return on the floor.

"The injury situation is not good, but now it's important to work hard and not listen to the critics, even though there are a lot of them. We are waiting for the return of our injured players," Vatutin explained.

"Tornike Shengelia has already appeared in two games, and his condition is improving. Milutinov and Grigonis will join the team in the coming days."

However, Vatutin thinks fans should not expect great results from them right off the bat.

"We should not look at the returning guys as messiahs. They will need time to get in shape".

CSKA will host Maccabi Playtika Tel Aviv in their next EuroLeague game on Thursday.
