According to ISU rule 579, the 49 competitors will be split into two sessions, the top 25 men in the ISU World Standings "skating later", and then the lower 24 men "skating earlier", as they call it. Rule 548 determines that the warm-up groups will be 6/6/6/6 men in the earlier session, and 5/5/5/5/5 men in the later session. The final two groups (10 skaters) will consist of the 10 highest-ranked men in the ISU World Standings. The other 15 men in the later session will be those skaters ranked 11th through 25th highest in the ISU World Standings. All other men will draw for skate order in the earlier session, and those with no ISU World Standing will be drawn for the first spots of the skating order.


So, if you followed through all of that, you get:

The first and second warm-up groups will include all of the unranked men, plus one skater from the "lower half" skating last in the second warm-up (12 skaters total). They will include the following:

Unranked Sarkis Hairapetyan ARM
Unranked Damjan Ostojic BIH
Unranked Georgi Kenchadze BUL

Unranked Saulius Ambrulevicius LTU
Unranked Joffrey Bourdon MNE
