Berlin – German basketball players could fall to NBA pro Franz Wagner in the quarterfinals of the European Championships.
The 21-year-old player from Orlando Magic is part of the German team for the match in Berlin (20.30 / Magentasport and RTL). Wagner’s use was uncertain until the end due to an ankle injury.
Nick Weiler-Babb (shoulder injury) and Johannes Voigtmann (cold) are also available to national team coach Gordon Herbert for the match with NBA star Giannis Antetokounmpo.
Former basketball superstar Dirk Nowitzki is happy with the current enthusiasm for his sport. “I’m a bit excited. It’s huge for our sport. It’s going to be a great night,” said the 44-year-old on RTL before the match against Greece. Cologne’s private broadcaster was given the right to show the game on free TV at short notice.
Nowitzki, who won the 2002 World Championship bronze and the 2005 European Championship silver, is the ambassador of the tournament in Cologne and Berlin. “The team is doing very, very well. We played great games. Dennis Schröder has the game under control,” said Nowitzki about his successor on the national team.
