After undergoing arthroscopic surgery on his knee, Wilson Palacios is set to miss the next three weeks for Tottenham Hotspur. The injury will keep him out of the English Premier League matches against West Ham United and Wigan Athletic, but Palacios should be healthy and available for selection when the UEFA Champions League quarterfinals hit. Of course, we don't know who our Champions League opponent is, since that draw is made on this coming Friday.
Honestly, Palacios was going to find it tough to crack the lineup with Sandro's form being what it is, but it still sucks to lose any body in midfield at this point in the season. We have no idea when Tom Huddlestone is supposed to return since his original return date was the first week of February, so Palacios going down leaves us a little thin. Hopefully, we don't have to endure Jermaine Jenas as a defensive midfielder or something along those lines.
