The club does not specify in its statement on Thursday how long Suarez might be sidelined, saying the "evolution of his treatment" will determine when he returns to training.

Suarez forms part of Barcelona's attacking trio that includes Neymar on the left flank and Lionel Messi on the right.

Barcelona is going for a treble in the next three weeks. There's the Champions League final against Juventus next month, two rounds left in the Spanish league it leads by four points, and the Copa del Rey final against Athletic Bilbao on May 30.
