The striker has picked up an Achilles tendon injury that will keep him on the sidelines.
Miccoli's scans showed a small tear that requires total rest for a fortnight in order to avoid a more serious problem.
Miccoli's absence gives coach Dino Zoff a major selection problem at a crucial juncture in the season.
Zoff is already without Valeri Bojinov and now faces crucial fixtures with a reduced strike-force.
Miccoli's absence will include the visit of his former club Juventus, a team against whom he has indicated his desire to show that discarding him was an error.
