Montreal Impact Injury Report: May 23rd edition

Here is your latest Montreal Impact injury report as of the morning of May 23rd 2012

Sinisa Ubiparipovic (Left groin strain)


The attacking midfielder has picked a groin injury and his absence against his former team, the New York Red Bulls, was apparent at least statistically. The Montreal Impact have won every game in which Ubiparipovic has played in (as a starter or coming in a sub). He might be the key to the Montreal Impact's offensive play as he can play behind strikers or on the sides.

Felipe Martins (Left groin strain)


The most important player of the team, Felipe Martins has picked up the '' groin strain '' bug that all players (pro or amateur) know very well. No details on the extent of the injury but the holding midfielder is Probable for the game against the Colorado Rapids which means he should be playing unless he aggravates his injury in practice. The upcoming 3-week break will be more than welcomed by the hard working Italo-Brazilian who has played every minute of every official game for the Montreal Impact: 1080 minutes.

More after the jump

Zarek Valentin (right calf contusion)

The right back / center back is still suffering from a calf contusion but looked better recently. He participated in yesterday's practice and should be available for the next game against the Rapids but might be rested as not to risk another injury before the international break.


Josh Gardner (hamstring tendinitis)

The offensive left back has not played since the Impact's hard-fought loss against Real Salt Lake and seems to still be bothered by a hamstring injury.


Evan James (nose fracture)

The Canadian U23 international has not had a chance to play with the first team but logged some minutes with the reserve team. His unfortunate accident in practice


Justin Mapp (right calf strain)

After being rested against Sporting Kansas City and initially sidelined by an earlier injury, the left-footed midfielder/winger has not shown as much pep as the fans are used to but still has not lost his magical touch. Arguably the most technical player on the team, his impact (no pun intended) is obvious after a slow start to the season. A 3-week break between the Colorado Rapids (26/05/2012) game and the Stade Saputo home opener against the Seattle Sounders (16/06/2012) will be enjoyed by the MLS veteran.
