‘Ironman’ Calathes has 120 Euroleague matches in a row: will he play the final today?

Nick calathes continues between cottons with the hope that he can dispute the final this afternoon (20.30) between the Barça and the Anadolu efes that will grant the title of the Euroleague 2020-21. The Greek guard, who suffered a ankle sprain in the last minutes of Friday’s semi-final match against him Armani milan, continues to receive treatment from the team’s doctor and physiotherapists but his presence in the game will not be known until the prolegomena of it.

Calathes attended yesterday Saturday Barça training late in the afternoon and was on the track but working outside the group. Today he was also in the shooting session this afternoon, in which the recovery work continued. According to TV3, the player is willing to play as the final is, although the final decision will be made by the coach Sarunas Jasikevicius.

If he finally missed today’s final, it would be real bad luck for the Greek guard, a player who is injured very little and who haven’t missed a Euroleague game in the last three and a half years.

The last Euroleague match that was lost was a Valencia-Panathinaikos played on December 28, 2017. Since then the current Barça base has played 120 Euroleague matches in a row.
