Kostas Papanikolaou: Signs on with Greek club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kostas 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 | Special to CBSSports.com

Papanikolaou was waived by the Nuggets on Thursday, Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports reports.

After serving as a fill-in starter for Danilo Gallinari (ankle) at small forward over a five-game stretch to close out December, Papanikolaou had assumed a bench role for the Nuggets' previous three games, and only appeared in two of those contests. Regardless of how he was been deployed in his 26 games with the Nuggets, Papanikolaou was rarely effective, averaging just 2.6 points while shooting 36.4 percent from the field. He may have to head back overseas before he gets another opportunity at the NBA level.

Nuggets' Kostas Papanikolaou: Not doing much with starting opportunity
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kostas 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 Denver 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 | RotoWire

Kostas 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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kostas 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.
