Drogba was unable to play last weekend against Orlando due to the injury, but if he is able to train this week, he could force his way back into the starting XI.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

A hip flexor injury picked up in Saturday's 1-1 home draw versus the Philadelphia Union is expected to leave Drogba sidelined for Montreal's home match against Orlando on Saturday, MLS Soccer reports.

Montreal's star striker did not practice Monday, leading to speculation the 38-year-old will likely be held out of his fifth game of the season. Should Drogba not be available, his absence will definitely be felt by both Impact supporters and fantasy owners alike, as the forward has scored in each of his last three appearances.

Drogba scored the lone goal for Montreal in the 1-1 draw against Philadelphia on Saturday.

Drogba continues to tear up the defenses of the MLS since his return from his knee injury scoring a goal in his third straight game. It was also his third consecutive game with over five shots. He will continue to be one of the best fantasy options going forward if he can stay healthy.

Drogba accounted for a single score on five shots and tallied a pair of assists Saturday as Montreal played Columbus to a 4-4 draw on the road.

Drogba punched in a penalty shot in the 57th minute of Saturday's contest that not only began closing a 4-1 deficit to the Crew, but also provided the forward with his third score of 2016. The 38-year-old from the Ivory Coast also finished this weekend's fixture with a career-high two assists, which leaves him now having collected three over the span of his last three appearances and tied with Harry Shipp for second-most on the club.

Drogba had one goal on seven shots, adding two crosses and interception as Montreal tied 2-2 with Colorado.

This was Drogba's third start of the season and his second goal. Expect the 38-year-old to start most matches that are played on grass.

Drogba may be used off the bench Wednesday against NYC FC, as Montreal are playing three games in eight days, the < a href="http://montrealgazette.com/sports/soccer/mls/montreal-impact/nyc-match-a-chance-to-test-our-depth-impact-coach-biello-says">Montreal Gazette reports.

Drogba dealt with knee swelling earlier this season, which kept him from playing on artificial turf, and given the condensed schedule, it's unsurprising that the team could limit his minutes. If he does not start, Dominic Oduro could lead the line.

Drogba scored within six minutes of being introduced at the start of the second half, as Montreal defeated Chicago by a score of 2-1. The Ivorian finished with three shots in 40 minutes.

This was the 38-year-old's first goal of the season, as he has just been limited to just two substitute appearances thus far. Despite this fact, Montreal find themselves atop the Eastern Conference.

Drogba is expected to play Saturday against the Fire, Goal.com reports.

Drogba, who missed five of Montreal's first six games of the season while rehabbing a long-standing knee injury, looks set to rejoin an Impact club that went 3-2 in his absence and is currently led in scoring by midfielder Ignacio Piatti.
