The 28-year-old has been informed he will need to undergo surgery on the knee injury he sustained earlier in the season.
Knopper had hoped to avoid an operation, but the knee failed to respond to treatment and he is now set to head under the surgeon's knife.
The news will come as a blow to Vitesse who have made a sticky start to the new season and will want to avoid slipping back into relegation trouble, having turned their form around last term.
