A pair of ALBA Berlin key contributors, forward Luke Sikma and swingman Niels Giffey will miss several weeks due to injuries, the club announced on Saturday. Sikma left the Round 16 loss against Zalgiris Kaunas with 9 minutes left after suffering a thigh injury. Sikma is the only ALBA player who started in each of the team's 16 games this season, and averages 9.8 points, 5.8 rebounds and 3.7 assists in a team-high 24:41 minutes per game. Giffey, who is ALBA's longest-tenured player, will miss action due to a foot injury, the club announced. He is posting 9.8 points on 45.7% three-point shooting and 3.3 rebounds this season. ALBA sits on a 6-10 record and has two home games this coming week, first a rescheduled Round 5 cash against TD Systems Baskonia Vitoria-Gasteiz on Tuesday, then a tilt with Maccabi Playtika Tel Aviv on Thursday.
