Schweinsteiger (knee) is expected to miss the remainder of the season but could return in time for this summer's European Championships.

Schweinsteiger's knee injury was initially thought to have knocked him out of this summer's competition, but it looks as if he might be available to play for Germany. If he has played his last match of the season for United, he'll finish with one goal and two assists across 31 matches in all competitions.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Schweinsteiger (knee) is likely out for the rest of this season and could miss this summer's Euro 2016. "Schweinsteiger is a tragic injury because the expectation is not so good for him in respect of of the European Championship [in the summer], but you never know," manager Louis van Gaal said.

Schweinsteiger has come in as an integral piece of United's midfield and his absence for the final eight matches could be a crushing blow to the team's top-four hopes as they currently sit just one point outside. In his first Premier League season, he has one goal and one assist in 18 matches.

Schweinsteiger will have a scan on his knee after injuring it during training while on international duty, the German FA announced Wednesday.

Schweinsteiger missed time recently with a knee injury, though it's unclear if the latest ailment is related. He's been a solid piece of the Manchester United holding midfield this season, though injuries have limited him. If he has to miss any time, Morgan Schneiderlin and/or Michael Carrick could get more playing time.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Schweinsteiger (knee) played 11 minutes off the bench in Thursday's Europa League tie against Liverpool.

The return of Schweinsteiger is going to bring depth and experience in United's depleted corps for the crucial final stages of Premier League. However, while he could have a key role in the Red Devil's midfield, he's not a big fantasy factor with only one goal and no assists in 17 league appearances (13 starts).

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Schweinsteiger (knee) could train with the first team next week.

As Manchester United's midfield continues to heal up, Schweinsteiger's place in the side looks murky, but a team can never have too much quality in the middle of the park. The 31-year-old has missed the past eight Premier League matches and hasn't made quite the impact the team hoped after bringing him over from Bayern Munich last summer.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Schweinsteiger has been given a two-week holiday while he recovers from his knee injury, and it is unclear when he'll be fit again, manager Louis van Gaal said Friday.

Schweinsteiger's absence isn't a huge hit right now, as Morgan Schneiderlin and Michael Carrick are fit, though they will need the German back as they compete for a top-four spot.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Schweinsteiger looks to have made minimal progress since injuring his knee almost a month ago and will be out for Sunday's match at Chelsea.

The older you get, the harder it is to come back from injuries and that's probably the case here. Schweinsteiger hadn't done much fantasy-wise this season as it is and Marouane Fellaini is expected to get the start again. Fellaini, with one goal and two assists this season, also has minimal value at Stamford Bridge.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Schweinsteiger (knee) has been ruled out of the Newcastle clash on Saturday.

The 31-year-old midfielder hasn't been a fantasy fire-power, so his absence won't affect too many roster. Marouane Fellaini will probably continue to start as defensive midfielder.
