Fiorentina striker Mario Gomez has avoided another lengthy lay-off after injuring his ankle in the 2-1 Coppa Italia victory at Juventus on Thursday.
Gomez has been blighted with injuries since moving from Bayern Munich in 2013 – missing much of his debut season with a knee ligament problem.
A thigh issue sidelined the Germany international earlier this season and there were fears the problem could lead to a further prolonged spell out of action.
However, the Serie A outfit confirmed on Friday that Gomez will only be out for two weeks.
The 29-year-old is now likely to miss league fixtures against Lazio and Milan, as well as the UEFA Europa League last-16 first-leg clash at home to Roma.
