    Kostas Papanikolaou: Signs on with Greek club

    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

    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.

    Nuggets' Kostas Papanikolaou: Not doing much with starting opportunity

    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

    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.

    Nuggets' Kostas Papanikolaou: Scores nine points in start

    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.

    Nuggets' Kostas Papanikolaou: Will get the start Tuesday

    Papanikolaou is in the starting lineup for Tuesday' game against the Lakers, Chris Dempsey of the Denver Post reports. Papanikolaou moves into the starting lineup, as Danilo Gallinari will sit out with an ankle injury. Many believed Will Barton would be the starter, but it looks as if coach Michael Malone wanted to keep him in a bench role due to the amount of success he's had there recently. With that being said, the start marks Papanikolaou's first of the year and second of his career, so look for him to see an increase in minutes from the nine he's averaged so far this season. Barton and Darrell Arthur should see plenty of time at the three as well behind him.

    Nuggets' Kostas Papanikolaou: Reappears in rotation

    Papanikolaou saw 14 minutes off the bench in Monday's 114-106 win over the Nuggets, producing five points (2-4 FG, 1-2 3Pt), one rebound, one block, and one steal. It was the first time in December that coach Michael Malone turned to Papanikolaou, who had went unused in the previous five games. It's likely that the absence of Darrell Arthur, who missed Monday's game with a knee issue, was largely responsible for why Papanikolaou got off the bench. It doesn't appear that Arthur's injury is a long-term concern, so Papanikolaou shouldn't see many minutes beyond Monday's game.

    Nuggets' Kostas Papanikolaou: Plays two minutes Sunday

    Papanikolaou failed to score in his two minutes of action for Denver in their 118-105 loss Sunday to the Warriors. Papanikolaou has played in every game for the Nuggets since signing with the team on Nov. 5th. However, he's only averaging 7.2 minutes per game in that span. Papanikolaou has managed to score 2.1 points along with 1.2 rebounds per game. His opportunities will continue to be limited behind Kenneth Faried and Darrell Arthur.

    Kostas Papanikolaou: Signing with Nuggets

    Papanikolaou is expected to sign with the Nuggets on Thursday, Chris Dempsey of the Denver Post reports. The Nuggets released guard Erick Green on Thursday, clearing a roster spot, which they're expected to use on Papanikolaou, who was with the team briefly in the offseason. The Greece native came over from Houston in the Ty Lawson deal, but the Nuggets waived him in late-September prior to camp. With the Nuggets currently dealing with a slew of frontcourt injuries, Papanikolaou will return and could step into a meaningful role, at least in the short-term. He appeared in 43 games for Houston last season, averaging 4.2 points and 2.7 rebounds in 18.5 minutes.

    Report: Nuggets waive F Kostas Papanikolaou

    The Nuggets have waived forward Kostas Papanikolaou, according to Marc Stein of ESPN. Papanikolaou was due to make close to $5 million this season, and rather than pay him, the Nuggets will remove him from the roster prior to training camp. He spent last season in Houston, appearing in 43 games and averaging 4.2 points while shooting just 35 percent from the field. Houston opted to decline his team option in June.
