Greece suspended from Giannis Antetokounmpo exams

No Giannis Antetokounmpo at the Acropolis tournament this week. As Greece lost to Serbia and Italy, the “Greek Freak” is returned to the United States to have his knee, operated on this summer, examined by the medical staff of the Bucks. Giannis has still not trained with his teammates since the start of the preparation, and it is difficult to see how Milwaukee could give the green light to its participation in the World Cup.

“I think that soon, today or tomorrow, we will be a little better informed as a federation on the question of Giannis Antetokounmpo”, said Dimitris Itoudisthe national team coach.

The latter must already manage a new absence of size since Dimitris Agravanis left the group this week for “personal reasons”. The local press evokes a conflict with his coach, and Itoudis is not tender with his player.

“The departure of Agravanis does not change anything. Athletes come here of their own free will, we don’t put a gun to their head. He excluded himself from the national team. I will not reveal the details. I contacted 22 guys by phone or in person. Someone says “I’m coming” and someone says “I can’t”. It’s simple “.

Opponent of the United States in the group stage, Greece is clearly not at its best before the competition.
