After losing Kyle Kuric, Pierre Oriola and long-time injured Nick Calathes to covid-19, FC Barcelona will have some of their former absentees back in the upcoming game against Bitci Baskonia Vitoria-Gasteiz.

According to Spanish outlet El Mundo Deportivo, Sergi Martínez has traveled with the team to Vitoria for Thursday's clash and Sarunas Jasikevicius will decide whether to give him playing time or not, although the player is not at 100%.

The Catalan forward suffered an ankle sprain two weeks ago against Red Star and missed the last two games against Panathinaikos and UNICS Kazan. The last two games of Barca in the ACB against Manresa and Andorra have been postponed due to a Covid-19 outbreak on those teams.

Nigel Hayes-Davis, who spent ten-day confinement in Athens starting from his birthday, will also be available. With him and Martinez back, Saras will no more need to use as' 3 ' players like Mirotic and Smits. Apart from the three players infected, the EuroLeague leaders remain without Alex Abrines and Cory Higgins who have not recovered from their injuries.

In order to deal with absences, Jasikevicius has called three players from Barca's youth teams: forward Michael Caicedo, guard Agustin Ubal, and center James Nnaji.

Those three will join Nicolas Laprovittola, Rokas Jokubaitis, Dante Exum, Nigel Hayes-Davis, Sergi Martínez, Nikola Mirotic, Rolands Smits, Sertac Sanli and Brandon Davies to form the 12-man squad in the All-Spanish clash.
