Juventus have welcomed the news that an injury sustained by Diego at the weekend is not as serious as first feared.
The Brazilian playmaker was forced off in Saturday's 2-0 victory over Lazio after tweaking a muscle.
There had been suggestions that he had aggravated a niggling thigh complaint carried over from his time in Germany with Werder Bremen.
However, scans have shown no lasting damage and he is expected to make a speedy recovery.
Diego will require a week's rest in order to fully shake off the problem, while he will continue to undergo treatment on the problem area.
He will now miss Juve's UEFA Champions League clash with Bordeaux on Tuesday as a result, but he could come back into contention for Saturday's Serie A clash with Livorno.
