Neymar out for 10 weeks, misses United clash

Neymar out for 10 weeks, misses United clash

Neymar will not have to undergo surgery on a metatarsal injury in his foot, instead opting for more conservative treatment, which will rule him out for 10 weeks.

Neymar will miss Paris Saint-Germain's Champions League round of 16 matchup against Manchester United, the club announced on Wednesday.

The Brazilian, who has a fractured metatarsal, will miss the Ligue 1 side's last-16 tie against Manchester United, although he could be fit for a potential quarterfinal in April.

The Brazilian will go through some additional medical procedures in Spain before returning to Paris, where PSG are expected to manage his treatment.

The forward picked up a foot injury in the French Cup match with Strasbourg on January 23 and had scans and further assessment at PSG's Ooredoo Training Center.

Injury sidelines All-Star Oladipo
The Pacers now hold the No. 3 seed in the Eastern Conference and are 17 games above.500 for the first time in 4½ years. The Pacers would go on to beat the Raptors 110-106 to move a season-high 17 games over the.500 mark.

"Paris Saint-Germain sends its strongest support and encouragement to Neymar Jr to overcome this injury, with the courage and determination that the player has always shown".

Neymar damaged the same foot towards the end of last season and battled to be fit for Brazil's World Cup campaign in Russian Federation, where he looked short of fitness during the group stages.

An operation would have put Neymar's participation in that tournament at risk, as well as effectively ending his club season.

But while previous year the Brazilian national team's influence proved crucial in persuading Neymar to go under the knife, this time PSG were determined to play the deciding role in the treatment of their record signing. Although he recovered in time for the World Cup, he was not at his best in Russian Federation.

It is not only the goals they are shipping, but the injuries have taken a toil for Unai Emery's men who have the third worst defensive record in the top ten.
