Athanasiou (lower body) isn't expected to play Thursday versus Pittsburgh, Lisa Dillman of The Athletic reports.

Athanasiou will miss a 10th straight game with his lower-body issue and remains without a definite timetable for his return. The 27-year-old forward will need to be activated off injured reserve before rejoining the lineup, so look for that announcement to precede his return to game action.
