Higuain is on the bench Saturday against the Galaxy.

Higuain missed last weekend's match due to mild inflammation, and while he's fit enough to make the game-day squad, he's apparently not ready to play 90 minutes. Mohammed Saeid will start in his place.

Federico Higuain: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

August 28, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Higuain was held out of Saturday's match against the Earthquakes due to "mild inflammation," the Columbus Dispatch reports.

While the issue was called mild, it's possible Higuain was simply being rested, as the Crew were playing three games in eight days. His next opportunity to return comes Sept. 3 against the Galaxy.

August 21, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Higuain scored the second goal in Saturday's 2-0 win at New England.

Higuain scored for the first time since May and made his first attacking contribution since returning from injury. The win gives new life to Crew SC's playoff hopes and Higuain will continue to fuel the attack as they make their late-season push.

July 25, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Higuain returned to the pitch for the first time since June 1 Saturday as Columbus played Orlando City to a 2-2 draw at home.

Higuain, who has missed the last month and a half due to sports hernia surgery, returned to the pitch in the 71st minute of Saturday's fixtxure, coming off the bench as a substitute for Mohammed Saeid. The forward finished the match with three shots and having created several chances in the waning moments of the second period, leaving head coach Gregg Berhalter to tell The Columbus Dispatch, "You see what we've been missing since June. [Higuain] can make it happen. He's very smart, very good with his passing."

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Higuain (groin) is available off the bench Saturday against Orlando.

Higuain has missed the last six games with the injury, but he is finally healthy enough to be available off the bench. If he can get into the game he is a threat to have an impact on offense, but he will likely not make a start for another week, until he regains his match fitness.

July 20, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Higuain (groin) has trained this week, but it is unclear if he will be made available to play Saturday against Orlando City, the Columbus Dispatch reports.

Higuain underwent surgery on a sports hernia in the middle of June, and while he has returned to first-team training, it'll likely take some time to get his match fitness back, making him a fairly unreliable fantasy option in the short term.

June 16, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Higuain underwent surgery for a sports hernia Wednesday, and will miss five to seven weeks.

Higuain suffered the injury in the June 1 game against Philadelphia, but it was unclear how severe the injury was until now. He will likely be replaced by Cedrick Mabwati in the starting lineup, who should be returning from international duty with the Democratic Republic of the Congo this weekend.

May 29, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Higuain assisted on one goal in the 4-3 win over Salt Lake on Saturday.

Higuain now has three assists on the season, to go along with his three goals. He has been crucial to the offense of Columbus, and he will need to continue to make produce if he is going to keep his fantasy value up.
