Iniesta will not face Villarreal on Sunday after picking up a left knee injury in training.

Iniesta will undergo additional scans to determine the extent of the injury, although he's never been a huge fantasy producer despite his vital importance on the pitch for Barcelona.

Iniesta assisted on Fernando Torres' 69th minute goal during Spain's 3-0 win over Australia at the World Cup on Monday.

With Spain already eliminated from knockout round contention, Iniesta will get a little bit of a summer break before rejoining Barcelona for the next La Liga season.

Iniesta scored from the spot in the 20th minute of Barcelona's 4-0 win over Granada on Saturday.

The goal was Iniesta's first of the season in all competitions and he likely got the opportunity from the spot because Lionel Messi is out through the end of 2013 with a hamstring injury.

Iniesta is expected to sign a new five-year contract with Barcelona, ESPN FC reports.

Iniesta's current contract runs out in 2015 and club vice president Josep Bartomeu intimated that the new deal will make him one of the highest paid players in Europe. While he's a vitally important part of the Barca attack, he's a relatively weak fantasy player, failing to score a goal or record an assist through nine La Liga appearances this year.

Iniesta is expected to sign a contract extension with Barcelona in the next few weeks, Sky Sports reports.

Iniesta's current deal expires in 2015, so the club is looking to make sure he sticks around longer. He has already made 305 appearances with the club, which he debuted with back in 2002. He scored three Liga goals last season, to go along with 16 assists, although he hasn't done nearly as much this year in three matches, registering two shots, no goals and no assists so far.

Iniesta will be unavailable for Barcelona for two weeks due to a thigh injury according to Fox Sports.

This could develop into a major concern if Iniesta is not back early in the new year. Although for now, the amount of talent on the Barca squad should help fill in for the time being.
