www.dailymail.co.uk, September 8, 2022
Greece suffered a small scare after Giannis limped off the court in Milan with a mild ankle sprain. The 'Greek Freak' is racing against time to be fit to play the Czech Republic on Saturday. He scored 25 points in 19 minutes before exiting midway through the third quarter in the Group C finale for both teams, as Estonia crashed out along with Great Britain. 'It's all good,' Itoudis told reporters in a postgame interview, clarifying that his star player's injury involves his ankle, not his knee as initially reported.
