Zalgiris captain Jankunas injured, out 2 weeks

Zalgiris Kaunas will be without team captain and veteran leader Paulius Jankunas for at least a couple of weeks due to injury, the club confirmed on Tuesday. Jankunas, 34, pulled a pelvic muscle in practice on Monday and did not travel with the team for its road game against CSKA Moscow on Wednesday. He is expected to miss subsequent home games against Khimki Moscow Region and AX Armani Exchange Olimpia Milan, as well. Jankunas, an All-EuroLeague Second Team last season, when he helped lead Zalgiris to the Final Four, is averaging 7.9 points and 3.3 rebounds in 18 minutes per game so far this season.
