Silva will not play in Manchester City's Champions League match against Bayern Munich on Tuesday because of a knee injury, the Manchester Evening News reports.

Samir Nasri and Frank Lampard could try to fill the minutes-void left by Silva, who may be able to return Sunday against Southampton, though he'll have to start training first.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Silva (knee) is back in training and is hoping to be fit for Wednesday's Champions League match against Bayern Munich, The Guardian reports.

Given the timeframe, Silva will not play this Saturday against Swansea City, with the club hopeful he does not suffer a setback before Wednesday's tilt.

Silva will be sidelined for up to three weeks after suffering knee ligament damage during Tuesday's Capital One Cup against Newcaslte, manager Manuel Pellegrini confirmed Friday.

It's a tough blow for fantasy owners, as Silva was really starting to come into form. The good news for Manchester City is that Samir Nasri has returned from injury and figures to start Sunday against Manchester United.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Silva suffered a knee injury during Wednesday's Capital One Cup match against Newcastle and he will be assessed Thursday to determine the severity of the ailment.

It's incredibly questionable why Silva was even playing in the match, and making matters worse for City, Yaya Toure also suffered a groin injury, though he played through it. The timing could not be worse, as the Citizens will host Manchester United this Sunday.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Silva scored in the 77th minute of Manchester City's 2-1 loss at West Ham on Saturday.

City were down 2-0 at the time and felt completely dominated until Silva's goal brought the Citizens back in it. The goal was just his second this season, which he's coupled with two assists, as he continues to be a significantly important part of the City attack, but it doesn't always translate to a plethora of fantasy points.

Silva, who was held out of Manchester City's Capital One Cup match against Bolton in midweek due to an ankle injury, picked up two assists in Saturday's 4-2 win over Hull City.

Silva has been a fairly quiet fantasy producer so far this season, as he scored in Man City's first Premier League game and hadn't been a part of any other score until Saturday's action. Nevertheless, he plays a vital role in an offense expected to score plenty of points this season, which keeps him very relevant in nearly all fantasy formats.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Silva, who was held out of Wednesday's Capital One Cup match against Sheffield Wednesday with an ankle issue, is fit for Saturday's Premier League match against Hull City, manager Manuel Pellegrini confirmed Friday.

The injury was never considered serious and was likely just a little cover to give Pellegrini a reason to sit him. Silva is expected to return to his usual spot in the starting XI, as he remains a solid fantasy option.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Silva will be held out of Manchester City's Capital One Cup match against Sheffield Wednesday on Wednesday due to an ankle issue but manager Manuel Pellegrini said he expects Silva to play in Saturday's Premier League match against Hull City.

The ankle issue is probably just an excuse to sit Silva in a game that doesn't mean much to City, allowing him some extra rest after last weekend's tough Premier League match against Chelsea.
