Sasha Djordjevic added the James Gist to his injured list, Gist suffered a fracture and would be out of action for two weeks. The American power forward had an MRI after returning from Barcelona and found to have suffered a fracture in the posterior thigh of his right leg and will be forced to spend 15 days in the "pits". Of course, the timing of his injury is the worst possible for Panathinaikos.
That's because Panathinaikos already have Nikos Pappas and Lefteris Bochoridis knocked out, while injury problems face Jankovic and Kuzmic. So ... another headache came along for coach Djordjevic.
Moreover, the timing is bad, because the 29-year old power forward had found a rhythm and started positive this season. After last year's punishing Gist returned at a high level and had great contribution to the game of Panathinaikos, indicating that he is in great shape.
