Espindola (hamstring) was initially expected to be out 2-to-4 weeks, but after an MRI he will miss just 1-to-2 weeks, according to Steven Goff of the Washington Post.

Even with the good news, the loss of Espindola will hurt the attack of D.C. Until he comes back Alvaro Saborio will likely start in Espindola's place.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Espindola is expected to be sidelined for 2-to-4 weeks because of the hamstring injury he suffered Saturday against the Revolution, the Washington Post reports.

The team will reportedly get Espindola's MRI results back Tuesday, which will help narrow down his possible return date, but it's still a fairly significant blow to their attack. Alvaro Saborio will likely start in his absence.

Espindola was removed from Saturday's match against the Revolution after suffering a right hamstring strain, according to Kyle McCarthy of the Boston Herald.

Espindola has been an excellent fantasy option of late, and his absence will be a big void to fill. Alvaro Saborio came on to replace him Saturday and would presumably start for him if he has to miss any additional time.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Espindola netted two goals in Saturday's 4-0 win against Vancouver.

Espindola put away two goals on his six shots, all of which were on goal. He was a crucial part of D.C. United's attack and scored on either side of the break in the 39th and 54th minutes. This was his third goal of the season and his third start of the season. Looking ahead he'll try to continue this goal scoring form and be an important part of their attack.

Espindola had seven shots, only one on goal, and had a penalty kick saved in Saturday's 0-3 loss to Dallas.

Espindola was in the starting lineup following a solid performance off the bench against Colorado last week. His 66th minute penalty kick was easily saved by Chris Seitz and although he had seven shots, only the penalty kick was on target. It remains to be seen whether he retains the starting spot or we see the return of Luciano Acosta in the starting lineup against San Jose on Saturday.

Espindola came on as a substitute in the 60th minute and had five shots, one on target, and a goal in a 1-1 draw with Colorado on Sunday.

Espindola was available off the bench after missing time with a hamstring injury, and he made the most of his substitution with an important equalizing goal for D.C. United. If he is fully fit, he may break into the starting lineup against Dallas on Saturday.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Espindola (hamstring) is available off the bench Sunday against Colorado.

The return to fitness is surely a plus, though Espindola's fantasy upside is of course limited off the bench.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Espindola is expected to return from his hamstring injury Sunday against the Rapids, the Washington Post reports.

Espindola was held out of last weekend's match due to the ailment, and while he missed training Tuesday to be with his wife, who gave birth Monday, he is expected back soon and should feature this weekend.
