Ramires (kidney) has been ruled out for the final two games of the season.

Ramires was left out of Chelsea's recent matches and it was unclear what the issue was until he posted about having a kidney issue on Instagram. While the issue will hold him out, he's likely to be fully fit this summer and be fine for the start of next season.

Ramires will miss multiple weeks because of a kidney problem, the BBC reports.

Ramires was held out of last weekend's title-clinching victory over Crystal Palace due to the ailment, but it wasn't until he announced the issue on Instagram on Thursday that the cause of his absence was known. It's unclear if he'll play again this season, given that Chelsea have already won the title and are far removed from Champions League play.

Ramires picked up his fourth assist of the season by setting up Eden Hazard in the 22nd minute of Wednesday's 1-0 win over West Ham.

Ramires got the start as part of Jose Mourinho's squad rotation, so he's not necessarily locking himself into a consistent starting spot. With Nemanja Matic's three-match ban now over, it's likely Ramires could move back to a reserve role.

Ramires, who has been battling a thigh issue of late, played nine minutes off the bench in Saturday's win over Hull City, finishing with five passes.

John Obi Mikel got the start in place of the suspended Cesc Fabregas, one game after he started in place of the suspended Nemanja Matic. The two starts surely don't play well into Ramires' fantasy prospects, though it's more likely because his thigh isn't 100 percent as opposed to Mikel passing him on the depth chart. With the condensed holiday schedule coming up, Ramires will be needed as healthy as possible.

Ramires (groin) came on for Willian in the 86th minute of Saturday's match against West Brom, finishing with 10 touches.

Chelsea were comfortably up 2-0 for the entire second half, and Ramires was brought on to make sure it stayed that way. He's been a decent fantasy producer this season when healthy, though he continues to play a more defensive role, which will limit his upside in most formats.
