Berlin – The German basketball player could fall against the NBA professional Franz Wagner in the quarterfinals of the European Championship.

The 21-year-old from Orlando Magic is part of the German team for the game in Berlin (8.30 pm / Magentasport and RTL). Wagner’s use is uncertain until the end due to an ankle injury.

Nick Weiler-Babb (shoulder injury) and Johannes Voigtmann (cold) are also available to Nationals coach Gordon Herbert for the game against potential NBA star Giannis Antetokounmpo.

Former basketball superstar Dirk Nowitzki is happy with the current enthusiasm for his sport. “I’m a little excited. It’s a big thing for our sport. It’s going to be a great evening,” the 44-year-old said on RTL ahead of the game against Greece. A private radio station from Cologne has secured the rights to show the game on free TV at short notice.

Nowitzki, who won gold at the 2002 World Championships and silver at the 2005 European Championships, is a tournament ambassador in Cologne and Berlin. “The team did very well, we played a great game. Dennis Schröder had the game under control,” Nowitzki said of his successor in the national team.
