The 18-year-old was taking part in a friendly against Heracles' youngsters when he suffered a fractured cheekbone.
The forward has been informed he can return to training a couple of days after undergoing surgery, but will not be risked in competitive action for at least a month.
Owoeri is unlikely to lose much in terms of sharpness, so could be in contention as soon the medical team give him the green light.
Also on the sidelines is defender Tim Vincken, who is nursing a shoulder problem.
