Robertas Javtokas - EuroBasket 2013 Profile

Team 2012-13: Zalgiris Kaunas (Lithuania-LKL)
Career: Siauliai (Lithuania-LKL, 1996-97); Arizona (USA-NCAA, 1999); Lietuvos Rytas (Lithuania-LKL, 2000-06); Panathinaikos (Greece-ESAKE, 2006-07); Dynamo Moscow (Russia-Superleague, 2007-09); Khimki Moscow Region (Russia-Superleague, 2009-10); Power Electronics Valencia (Spain-ACB, 2010-11); Zalgiris Kaunas (Lithuania-LKL, 2011-13)


Robertas Javtokas, the captain of the national team, will return to the squad after missing the Olympic Games with an injury he picked up in the Olympic Qualifying Tournament in Venezuela. The stress fracture in his foot forced the powerful center to miss the first half of the 2012-13 season with Zalgiris Kaunas as well. However, by the time of the LKL Finals, Javtokas was once again a force under the basket, grabbing rebounds, setting solid screens and playing excellent defence. Although the role of the 33-year-old big man in EuroBasket might be smaller than in past tournaments, he will throw in his leadership and wealth of experience, to lead the Lithuanian team both in the locker room and on the court.
