Lucas Nogueira returned to the court today for Estudiantes in an 86-80 win over Bilbao Basket

Lucas Nogueira returned to action on Sunday for Estudiantes and helped lead them to an 86-80 win over Bilbao Basket.

Nogueira hit all four of his field goal attempts to finish with eight points, five rebounds, two blocks and a steal in 14 minutes off the bench. With the win, Estudiantes improved to 6-15 on the season.

It was the first action for Nogueira since December. He's appeared in seven games this season and is averaging 6.0 points and 4.3 rebounds in 17 minutes per game. Nogueira left the team after complaining of soreness in his knees. He traveled to Los Angeles and Atlanta to have his knees examined where he was diagnosed with a severe case of tendinitis.

Mike Muscala will be in an Atlanta Hawks uniform Sunday night but his former club was in action on Sunday. Rio Natura Monbus extended their winning streak to six games with a 60-53 win over Gran Canaria.
