Ignas Vaitkus has had a red-hot start to the Betsafe LKL campaign and has come away with the Player of the Month award for September despite a tough run of games for Siauliai.

In the first two games of the season against Juventus and Pieno Zvaigzdes, the forward averaged 18.0 points, 8.0 rebounds, 2.0 assists and 2.0 steals for a league-best efficiency index of 24.0.

However, Siauliai are still searching for their first win of the campaign after suffering two close defeats. They lost their two fixtures by a combined seven point margin.

Zalgiris guard Nate Wolters, Dominique Sutton of Rytas, Emmanuel Omogbo of Pieno Zvaigzdes and Juventus big man Vaidas Cepukaitis filled out the other slots in the Team of the Month.
