Neymar suffered a contusion that caused an edema in the fourth metatarsal of his left foot during Wednesday's Copa del Rey final against Real Madrid, and he is expected to miss at least the next four weeks.

If Neymar is able to make it back in the four-week timetable, his first game back will be the La Liga finale against Atletico Madrid.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Neymar (ankle) came on for Pedro in the 62nd minute and scored in the 89th minute of Barcelona's 6-0 rout of Rayo Vallecano on Saturday.

Neymar injured his ankle back in mid-January and returned one day short of a month. It's a huge boost for Barca, who will travel to England to face Manchester City in the Champions League on Tuesday.

Neymar (ankle) returned to full team training Monday, ESPN FC reports.

Neymar has missed nearly a month with the ankle injury, and started training on his own last week. He will continue to sit out, which means he'll miss Wednesday's Copa del Rey semifinal at Real Sociedad, but his return should come soon enough.

Neymar continues to recover from his ankle injury and started doing field work with a ball Monday.

Neymar has been working in isolation, so as to not suffer any setbacks while he recovers. He's still a few weeks away from returning, but it's certainly encouraging news that he's on track.

Neymar is expected to be out for three-to-four weeks after injuring his ankle in Thursday's Copa del Rey match against Getafe.

The injury appeared very serious at first, so it's certainly good news that Neymar could return within a month. Lionel Messi has recently returned from a hamstring injury, so Barcelona still have plenty of power up front, although fans are still waiting to watch the two superstars together for more than just a couple games in a row.

Neymar sprained the peroneal tendon in his right ankle during Thursday's Copa del Rey match against Getafe.

Neymar was forced from the match after just 23 minutes and needed assistance getting off the pitch, as he couldn't put any weight on his right foot. He will undergo additional tests Friday to determine the severity of the injury, but it seems unlikely he plays in Sunday's La Liga match against Levante.

Neymar scored from the spot in the 30th minute and then in open play in the 68th minute of Barcelona's 2-1 win over Villarreal on Saturday.

Neymar has really stepped up as of late, with Lionel Messi still sidelined by a hamstring injury. The 21-year old has five goals in his last two matches, which includes a hat trick against Celtic in last Wednesday's Champions League match. The Brazilian now has six goals in La Liga action, plus a co-league-leading eight assists.

The Brazilian dynamo was a man on fire in Barca's 6-1 Champions League win against Celtic on Wednesday, as he scored his first hat-trick as a member of the Catalan club, Football Espana reports.

Neymar profited greatly from the absence of Lionel Messi (hamstring) Wednesday. He currently ranks as the top passer in La Liga with eight assists. His scoring hasn't been as remarkable in league play, but the skillful offensive show that he put on against Celtic may be a sign of things to come.
