Ibrahimovic scored two goals during Paris Saint-Germain's 2-1 win over Nantes on Saturday.

Ibrahimovic was held out of Wednesday's match against Lille to rest a heel injury that has been bothering him all season, but he looked fully fit during his 90 full minutes Saturday. He now has eight goals in nine Ligue 1 matches, leaving him tied for third behind Marseille's Andre-Pierre Gignac and Lyon's Alexandre Lacazette, who are tied for first with 11 goals.

Paris Saint-Germain's team doctor said Thursday that Ibrahimovic's heel injury is likely to be an issue all season, and that he will not be able to play in every game, ESPN FC reports.

Ibrahmimovic was held out of Wednesday's draw with Lille, and he is a candidate to sit Saturday against Nantes in order to get him as fit as possible to face Barcelona in the Champions League next Wednesday. It's certainly not good news for fantasy owners, who may best be served going with Ibrahimovic's teammate Edinson Cavani for more consistent playing time.

Ibrahimovic slotted home a goal in the 78th minute of Tuesday's 3-1 Champions League victory over Ajax.

Ibrahimovic came on as a second-half sub in PSG's 2-0 win over Marseille on Sunday, taking two shots, both on goal, in 24 minutes.

Ibrahimovic has five goals in six appearances this season, and he looks poised to return to his scoring ways now that the heel injury is behind him. His return could hinder the progress of Edinson Cavani, who has scored a goal in five consecutive matches.

Ibrahimovic (heel) returned to first-team training this week and he could feature against Marseille on Sunday, ESPN FC reports.

Ibrahimovic has missed the last six Ligue 1 matches due to the injury and his return Sunday would be a huge boost against the Ligue 1 leaders. If he is unable to play this weekend, he is fully expected to play Nov. 22 against Metz following the international break.

Ibrahimovic (heel) is expected to return to training this week and might even be available for Sunday's game against Marseille, ESPN FC reports.

Ibrahimovic has been sidelined since Sept. 21 due to a heel injury, but has reportedly been without pain since last Wednesday. As a result, Ibrahimovic is expected to begin training again this week, though he will not play in Wednesday's Champions League tie versus APOEL. If anything, Ibrahimovic stands a chance of being ready for Sunday's top-heavy tie against first-place rivals Marseille, possibly representing a massive boost for second-place PSG.

Ibrahimovic has been ruled out of Paris Saint-Germain's Champions League match against Barcelona on Tuesday due to a heel injury.

This is a big blow to PSG, as Ibrahimovic currently leads them in goals (five) this season, sitting just three behind Andre-Pierre Gignac of Marseille. Jean-Christophe Bahebeck is expected to start in his place.
