BARCELONA, Spain (AP) -- Barcelona star Neymar will be sidelined three to four weeks because of a sprained right ankle.

The Brazil striker was hurt Thursday in a Copa del Rey match at Getafe while attempting to extend his dribble and falling under his own weight.

The team says medical scans Friday revealed the extent of the injury.

Neymar has 10 goals in all competitions for Barcelona since his summer transfer from Santos.
