RDS' Patrick Friolet has reported that Ignacio Piatti is out with a hip/groin injury for Saturday's game vs the Chicago Fire.
Nacho Piatti pas disponible pour le match de samedi à Chicago. Blessure entre la hanche et l'aine. Ballou pourrait le remplacer#IMFC— Patrick Friolet (@PFrioletRDS) March 29, 2017
Piatti is another huge loss with Laurent Ciman and midfielder Patrice Bernier questionable for Saturday's game. Ciman hurt himself in a World Cup qualifier with Belguim and his loss in the back could be deadly for the Impact.
Patrick Friolet added that maybe Ballou can replace Piatti in his position. Ballou hasn't started a game for the Impact so far this season, so maybe more time of Ballou can be a test and see how he plays in a full match.
