Ibrahimovic's four-match ban for referee abuse has been reduced to three, ESPN FC reports.

Ibrahmovic's absence is obviously a huge blow for PSG, as he is third in Ligue 1 with 17 goals. He also missed out on PSG's Champions League match against Barcelona after picking up a red card against Chelsea in the Round of 16. Ibrahimovic has dropped hints recently that his time in France may be coming to an end, and he will likely be a popular transfer rumor name this summer.

Ibrahimovic has been suspended four games for criticizing a referee last month, the Associated Press reports.

Ibrahimovic scored twice in PSG's 3-2 loss to Bordeaux on Sunday.

Ibra has been on a tear in domestic play of late, netting six goals in his last seven Ligue 1 games to bring his total to 14 on the season. He was apparently unphased by last week's red card versus Chelsea and will look to add to his totals against Lorient on Friday.

Ibrahimovic scored two goals during Paris Saint-Germain's 2-1 win over Nantes on Saturday.

Ibrahimovic was held out of Wednesday's match against Lille to rest a heel injury that has been bothering him all season, but he looked fully fit during his 90 full minutes Saturday. He now has eight goals in nine Ligue 1 matches, leaving him tied for third behind Marseille's Andre-Pierre Gignac and Lyon's Alexandre Lacazette, who are tied for first with 11 goals.

Paris Saint-Germain's team doctor said Thursday that Ibrahimovic's heel injury is likely to be an issue all season, and that he will not be able to play in every game, ESPN FC reports.

Ibrahmimovic was held out of Wednesday's draw with Lille, and he is a candidate to sit Saturday against Nantes in order to get him as fit as possible to face Barcelona in the Champions League next Wednesday. It's certainly not good news for fantasy owners, who may best be served going with Ibrahimovic's teammate Edinson Cavani for more consistent playing time.
