Olympiacos Piraeus is facing severe injury problems before its Turkish Airlines EuroLeague Regular Season Round 2 showdown against FC Barcelona.
Olympiacos loses Sikma, McKissic, two more questionable
Power forward Luke Sikma and swingman Shaquielle McKissic are expected to miss significant playing time while two other players, playmaker Nigel Williams-Goss and center Moustapha Fall, are questionable.<br> <br> Sikma is out for two weeks due to a left leg injury, a gastrocnemius haematoma. McKissic is set to be sidelined for at least three weeks due to a bone bruise in the femoral condyle with damage to the quadriceps tendon. Both of them would miss three EuroLeague games against Barca, EA7 Emporio Armani Milan and Partizan Mozzart Bet Belgrade. McKissic may miss two more, against Anadolu Efes Istanbul on October 26 and Fenerbahce Beko Istanbul on November 6 (Round 6).
Williams-Goss is questionable due to a muscle spasm, and Moustapha Fall may not play due to a knee injury. Just like McKissic, Sikma and Williams-Goss helped Olympiacos beat Panathinaikos 77-88 in overtime in the Greek derby last week. McKissic got injured in that game while Sikma and Williams-Goss went down in the Reds' Greek League opener against Aris Midea Thessaloniki. Fall already missed that Round 1 showdown and is practicing individually.
