Papadopoulos sidelined in Real?
Lazaros Papadopoulos(2.10-C) was one of the most expensive transfers in Real Madrid in the summer of 2007 but it seems that the greek center has not reached the desired standards of performance that many people thought he would.
According to statements of coach Plaza, Papadopoulos has not been sidelined and is still a player of Real and he will be playing when its needed from him. His stats however, are saying that his presence in the court is minimal and he has only played in 4 out of 8 games in the ACB league and didn't play at all against Bilbao. In the Euroleague his playing time is dropping as well. He has averaged 4 points and 2.3 rebounds in 4 games in the Euroleague playing on an average 13:46. In the spanish league he has averaged 3 points and 1.5 rebounds while playing a bit more than 13 minutes per game..
