PAN vs BCK Dream11 Team News:
BC Khimki News:
Egor Vialtsev is sidelined with a knee injury that could keep him out until mid-November. He joins Chris Kramer, Timofey Mozgov, Stefan Jovic and Evgeny Valiev on his team's injury list.
Head coach Georgios Bartzokas is unlikely to tinker with the formula which has brought success in the last few weeks.
Alexey Shved will be the key player for Khimki once again. His pick and roll play and the skills beyond the arc and inside the paint will be the key factor in deciding whether Khimki takes home all the points.
Anthony Gill and Janis Timma will be taking care of the frontcourt.
Ian Vougioukas missed last week's match due to illness and remains a doubt ahead of this match.
Nick Calathes is the team's most creative player and will be doing the exact job that Shved does for Khimki.
