Vandermeer "suffered some innocuous knee pain. Scans have confirmed he did suffer some cartilage damage in his knee," per head of sports medicine Chris Bell. He's expected to miss 4-6 weeks.
ANALYSIS
Vandermeer doesn't have as much fantasy value to add with no more than 14 disposals recorded in a single game this season but injuries are never a great omen. He'll hope to return in a month at the earliest.
