Chamakh has been ruled out for Saturday's match against West Ham, but he may be able to return from his hamstring injury March 14 against QPR, manager Alan Pardew said Thursday.

Palace are dealing with a number of issues up front, as Fraizer Campbell and Yaya Sanogo are also out with hamstring injuries, with the latter potentially also returning to face the Rs, but the former will be out for 5-to-6 weeks.

Chamakh (nose) should be able to play Saturday against Leicester despite suffering a broken nose, according to the Daily Mail.

Chamakh (nose) left Saturday's defeat against Everton early after colliding with the back of visiting defender Seamus Coleman's head and coming off worse. "He (Chamakh) wasn't concussed, but it was a heavy blow to the nose. I think he'll be okay for Leicester," manager Alan Pardew said. Chamakh has only just returned from six weeks out with a hamstring injury and has three goals so far this season in all competitions.

Chamakh bagged a brace in Saturday's 3-2 against Southampton in the FA Cup.

Chamakh returned to the starting XI after over a month out due to a hamstring injury and scored twice in the first half. It means the Moroccan striker now has three goals this season and will be involved next time out against Everton.

Chamakh (hamstring) is expected to miss "a couple of weeks", manager Neil Warnock told London 24.

Chamakh (hamstring) limped off in the later stages of Saturday's 1-1 draw with Stoke City and will go for a scan on Monday.

Chamakh (hamstring) was forced off in the 77th minute of Saturday's 1-1 draw against Stoke City.

Chamakh (hamstring) pulled up whilst chasing a ball and had to be replaced by Dwight Gayle. Chamakh has already missed large chunks of this season with hamstring trouble and his absence could last for as long as a month if past instances are taken into account.

Chamakh won a penalty in Saturday's 1-1 draw against Swansea City.

Chamakh was fouled by Swansea midfielder Jonjo Shelvey in the 25th minute and captain Mile Jedinak made no mistake from the spot. Chamakh moved to a central striker role after Dwight Gayle was taken off injured and caused the home defence problems for the entire time he was there. The Moroccan striker has still only scored once this season and may double that tally Tuesday against Aston Villa.

Chamakh was subbed-on in the 73rd minute of Saturday's 2-0 win against Leicester.

The Moroccan striker replaced Fraizer Campbell and had a couple of sniffs at goal in the closing minutes of the game. Chamakh could find himself on the bench once again for next week's trip to Hull as manager Neil Warnock may choose to play the same side that has given him two straight wins.

Chamakh (hamstring) is poised to return to the squad for this Saturday's match against Leicester, manager Neil Warnock told the Croydon Advertiser.

Chamakh has missed three games with the hamstring injury sustained in the 3-3 draw with Newcastle in August. The Moroccan striker is a pivotal part of Crystal Palace's attack and already a goal and an assist this season. When you take into consideration his injury problems, fantasy managers can expect five to six goals and a few assists from the striker this campaign.
