The latest injury report is out for Los Angeles Football Club, ahead of their match on Saturday against FC Cincinnati at The Banc, and the big news is that Adama Diomande will be out for the match with a hamstring strain.
Diomande set up the opening goal in LAFC’s win over D.C. United, but was forced out in the 28th minute with the injury. At the time, it looked like it might keep him out for the next game, and so it has come to be. Hopefully the strain isn’t severe and he’ll be back in contention soon.
In addition to Diomande being added to the injury report this week, Andre Horta (quad strain) and Rodolfo Zelaya (calf injury) remain out, and Alejandro Guido (quad) and Lee Nguyen (calf) are listed as questionable. Nguyen is back in training, although word on the street is that he is unlikely to feature against Cincinnati.
Meanwhile, FC Cincy have been talking about a crisis of injuries, and Fanendo Adi is suspended after being arrested for driving while impaired. But their full official injury list has one long-term player out, in Jimmy McLaughlin, who tore his ACL in preseason, while Roland Lamah, Emmanuel Ledesma, Kekuta Manneh and Przemyslaw Tyton are all listed as questionable. They could be bluffing (remember, MLS teams do not have to release fully accurate injury reports) or some of their injured could be gearing up to come back. Stay tuned on Saturday.
