This morning Leo Messi underwent some medical tests to determine if he was injured after being unable to play the secon half of the Liga match against Athletic Club. The club reported that there's no injury: "It turns out that the Argentinian has not got a hamstring injury and has just taken a bit of a knock. It is uncertain whether or not he will be available for future matches, but there is nothing major to worry about," said FC Barcelona in a statement.

So the club didn't assure he will be ready to face Athletic Club this Wednesday in La Copa, a match which is going to be played in Bilbao. Messi didn't participate in this morning's recovery session with the other mates. Luis Enrique said some days ago that they would not take risks with a player with discomfort.
