Gibbs is unlikely to play against Hull City on Sunday due to his ankle injury, the club's official web site reports.

Gibbs was able to come off the bench of last weekend's FA Cup semifinal against Wigan, but he was held out of Tuesday's Premier League match against West Ham. It is unclear when he is set to return, as he unfortunately missed a decent clean sheet opportunity this weekend.

Gibbs (ankle) faces a late fitness test ahead of Saturday's FA Cup semifinal against Wigan, the club's official web site reports.

Gibbs has not played since March 29 against Manchester City, but would be a helpful boost Saturday, especially with Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain (groin) and Tomas Rosicky (thigh) also facing late fitness tests.

Gibbs was unable to play in Sunday's match against Everton due to his ankle injury, although he is expected to play in the FA Cup semifinal against Wigan on Saturday.

Arsenal were dominated by Everton on Sunday, and while Gibbs may have been able to help, it was unlikely to be enough to put the Gunners ahead.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Gibbs has a slight ankle injury and is questionable for Sunday's match at Everton, according to Arsenal's official web site.

Arsenal are absolutely riddled with injuries right now and Gibbs' absence in the back four would certainly hurt further, as Laurient Koscielny (calf) is out as well.

The FA transferred the red card Gibbs was given during last weekend's match against Chelsea that should have gone to Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain on Monday.

With Arsenal playing Tuesday against Swansea, an quick meeting was held to sort out the issues with the red card. A case of mistaken identity was cited for Gibbs getting the punishment, and Oxlade-Chamberlain's appeal of the red card was upheld, allowing both players to be active for Tuesday's tilt.

Gibbs was given a straight red card in the 15th minute of Arsenal's loss at Chelsea on Saturday, although it will likely be transferred to Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, who stopped a goal with his hand.

It was downright baffling to see Gibbs sent off, given that Oxlade-Chamberlain even told the referee that he was the one who touched the ball. Gibbs wasn't producing much for fantasy owners anyway, but missing 75 minutes of potential time didn't help.

Gibbs (ankle) started and played all 90 minutes of Arsenal's 1-0 over Tottenham on Sunday.

Gibbs was held out of last week's Champions League match against Bayern Munich and had to pass a late fitness test to play Sunday. It's a significant boost for Arsenal, who play Chelsea at Stamford Bridge this Saturday.

Gibbs (ankle) will face a fitness test Friday to determine whether he can play in Sunday's game against Tottenham.

Gibbs played 87 minutes of last Sunday's FA Cup win over Everton but was held out of Tuesday's Champions League match against Bayern Munich. He'll be needed with Arsenal facing nothing short of an injury crisis.
