The Itaian international has strained knee ligaments and faces up to a month out of action.
Pirlo sustained the injury in training last week and missed last weekend's win over city rivals Internazionale.
The news is a blow to Milan's hopes of capturing the Serie A title and the Champions League.
Pirlo will be joined on the sidelines by Rivaldo for Tuesday's Coppa Italia semi-final with Perugia as the Brazilian has failed to shake off a leg injury.
Good news on the injury front for the Rossoneri is Serginho's knee he sustained against Inter is not as serious as feared and that he could feature against Perugia.
