Diame's scans on his knee revealed tendonitis and he received a series of injections to help recover, reports the Hull Daily Mail. The club is hopeful that seeing a specialist will speed up the recovery. However, club manager, Steve Bruce, noted they will not rush the midfielder back into action for fear the injury will flare up again.

Hull have really struggled offensively of late, and Diame's goal streak back in October feels like it happened years ago. He is out for Saturday's match against West Brom and will likely miss the next weekend against Chelsea. The club is hopeful for his return during the holiday stretch, but that will depend on how well he responds to treatment.

Diame will have scans on his knee Thursday to determine the extent of the injury he suffered in Wednesday's match against Everton, and he could miss six weeks if he needs an injection, according to the Hull Daily Mail.

Hull have really struggled offensively of late, and Diame's goal streak back in October feels like it happened years ago. The club will reveal more after the scans are reviewed, but he certainly seems highly unlikely to face West Brom on Saturday or Chelsea the following week.

Diame was in Hull City's Starting XI for Wednesday's match against Everton, but was subbed off in the 53rd minute with an apparent knee injury.

Diame had attempted just one shot before exiting the match early. While the injury is a concern, so to is his drop in production since the return of Nikica Jelavic to the lineup.

Diame was fit enough to feature in Hull City's Starting XI for Saturday's match against Manchester United. He managed to play 75 minutes before being subbed off but was unable to contribute with any shots or created chances as the Tigers fell 3-0.

Since scoring four goals in five matches, Diame has struggled to get on the stat sheet. He has gone goalless in the teams last five matches (four appearances).

Diame, who missed last Sunday's loss to Tottenham because of a knee injury, is expected to play this Saturday against Manchester United, the Hull Daily Mail reports.

Diame has been an excellent source of fantasy production this season and will get to face a Manchester United defense that has struggled this season, though they have played better of late.

Diame had scans on his injured knee come back negative and will be assessed in the days leading up to Hull City's match against Manchester United on Saturday.

The fact that there was no serious damage to Diame's knee is great news for Hull City as well as Diame fantasy owners. However, a matchup at Manchester United could limit his fantasy value if his playing time does not do it already.

Diame will undergo a scan on his knee after sitting out Sunday's match against Tottenham. Diame picked up the injury in training during the week and was unable to play against Spurs.

Diame had been a good fantasy option since transferring to Hull City this summer. While it is uncertain how much time he will miss, if any, his fantasy value would be low the next two weeks with matches at Manchester United and at Everton.

For a third consecutive league match, Diame led Hull City in shot attempts. The Tiger midfielder attempt two shots but was unable to put either on target during Saturday's 0-1 loss to Southampton.

The Hull City attack has been very anemic the past two weeks, but both matches have come against top competition (Liverpool and Southampton). Since Nikica Jelavic went down with an injury, Diame has led Hull City in shot attempts. With Jelavic out for the team's next match against Burnley, Diame will have a very good opportunity to get the Tigers into the back of the net.
