Origi will not require surgery on his injured ankle, which could allow him to return to fitness in time for this summer's Euro tournament, according to the Daily Mail.

Additional scans have revealed that only one ligament was damaged, and it could heal with rest and rehabilitation alone. Origi will still be out for four weeks and miss Liverpool's season finale, but may be able to return in time to help Belgium in this summer's tournament.

Divock Origi: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Origi may not be done for the season, according to manager Jurgen Klopp. "We will try everything, everything, [to make sure] the season is not over without taking any risks for the player," Klopp said.

Origi was stretchered off against Everton after a sinister challenge from Ramiro Funes Mori. Origi has been the team's best player of late, scoring in both legs against Borussia Dortmund and in two of the past three Premier League matches. While Klopp seems optimistic about Origi's chances of return, with less than a month to play in the season, the Reds will likely be without the services of their star center forward for the foreseeable future.

Origi is not expected to play again this season due to the ankle injury he suffered Wednesday against Everton, the Daily Mirror reports.

Origi had to be stretchered off the pitch after getting stomped on by Ramiro Funes Mori, and the subsequent ligament damage is not only serious enough to end his Premier League season but may also put his chances of playing for Belgium in the European Championship this summer in doubt. Daniel Sturridge is likely to get more starts up front for the Reds, with Christian Benteke also a possibility.

Origi was taken off the pitch in a stretcher following a late challenge, the Liverpool Echo reports.

The extent of Origi's injury was not immediately clear, but his lower leg was in a split as he was taken off after the tackle by Ramiro Funes Mori who was given a red card for the challenge. The striker netted the opening goal of the match, but could be out long term. Look for the Reds to update his status heading into Saturday's clash with Newcastle United.

Origi (back) is starting Wednesday against Everton.

Origi's back issue was not considered overly serious, though it's still a bit surprising to see him starting over Daniel Sturridge in such a big match. Unfortunately, that could certainly mean he doesn't play the full 90 minutes, limiting his fantasy chances.

Origi is fit to play Everton on Wednesday despite a back issue suffered Sunday against Bournemouth, manager Jurgen Klopp said Tuesday.

Origi has been excellent for the Reds of late, and while he is fit to play, he continues to have plenty of competition for playing time with the likes of Daniel Sturridge, Roberto Firmino and Adam Lallana on the wing.

Origi scored two goals off the bench in Sunday's 4-1 victory over Stoke City.

Getting the start over Daniel Sturridge in Thursday's Europa League tie, that decision paid dividends as he scored Liverpool's only goal of the match. Coming on at halftime for Sheyi Ojo, Origi needed just 20 minutes to put his rubber stamp on the match, netting in the 50th minute and then again in the 65th for his third and fourth goals of the Premier League season. The Belgian international has put a strong push for playing time moving forward; however, as of now, he's being blocked by the strong play of Sturridge in most cases.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp may choose to start Origi over Sturridge in Thursday's Europa League match, according to the Daily Mail.

Sturridge has been in excellent form for Liverpool, but Klopp knows Dortmund's style of play better than most others. If he does start Origi it will be a tactical move versus one that was forced by health or fitness, which could force the German side to adjust their match plan.
