Lions centre Rohan Janse van Rensburg will undergo surgery on Friday and miss three months of action after suffering a ligament tear in his knee.
He will be out for approximately 12 weeks after being injured in last Saturday's Super Rugby win over the Stormers.
"He has a lateral collateral ligament tear and posterolateral corner injury," a club statement read.
The injury rules Janse van Rensbury out for the rest of Super Rugby's regular season but he could be back in time for the play-offs should the Lions qualify.
It also means the 22-year-old, who made his international debut for the Springboks against Wales in November, will miss the three-Test series against France in June.
