  • Kostas Papanikolaou: Signs on with Greek club
    By RotoWire Staff

    Papanikolaou agreed to a contract with Olympiacos of Greece that will run through June 2019, Sportando reports. After being waived by the Nuggets earlier this month, Papanikolaou will head back to his home country, and could very well remain overseas for the remainder of his career. He failed to make much of an impression in his two seasons in the NBA, averaging 3.6 points on 35.4 percent shooting over a combined 69 games with the Rockets and Nuggets.

  • Kostas Papanikolaou: Cut by the Nuggets
    By RotoWire Staff

    League sources say that Papanikolaou has been released by the Nuggets, Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical reports. Papanikolaou has started in a few games as of late, filling in for an injured Danilo Gallinari. Despite his increased minutes, Papanikolaou averaged just 4.6 points, 2.8 rebounds, 1.8 assists, and 1.2 three-pointers as a starter. He was much less valuable off the bench.

  • Papanikolaou failed to score (0-3 FG, 0-2 3Pt) and collected five rebounds and one assist across 22 minutes in Tuesday's 93-87 loss to the Nuggets. Papanikolaou has picked up five starts in a row with Danilo Gallinari (ankle) unavailable, among a number of other players, but he's been unable to do much with his increased minutes. Over those five games, he's averaging just 4.6 points, 2.8 rebounds, 1.8 assists, and 1.2 three-pointers. He's safe to ignore in most formats until he supplies a few notable stat lines.

  • Nuggets' Kostas Papanikolaou: Starts Wednesday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Papanikolaou will start Wednesday against Phoenix, broadcaster Jason Kosmicki reports. Denver has a whole host of injured players which will allow Papanikolaou to see added minutes and the start Wednesday. He'll be starting at power forward while Kenneth Faried shifts over to center, while both are backed by Darrell Arthur, Joffrey Lauvergne, and J.J. Hickson.

  • Papanikolaou contributed nine points (3-5 FG, 3-4 3Pt) and one steal over 11 minutes in Tuesday's 111-107 loss to the Lakers. Papanikolaou showed a nice stroke from outside to make the most of his time on the court, but the allotment of playing time he received was still disappointing in what was his first start of the season. While Papanikolaou figures to hold down a regular rotation spot while Danilo Gallinari (ankle) remains hobbled, it appears second-unit stud Will Barton, who scored 25 points in 38 minutes Tuesday, will absorb most of Gallinari's playing time.
