Orlando Pirates have revealed that three international players will miss Saturday's PSL match at Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium, which hosted the 2010 FIFA World Cup.
According to the club's official website, the Bafana Bafana attacker will be out for three to four months due to a shoulder injury.
"The news was confirmed by the medical department, who revealed that the 28-year-old was involved in a strange accident while at home, prompting Nyoso to undergo shoulder surgery," the club said in a statement.
"An injury of this sort is likely to take 3 to 4 months to heal from."
Ofori is still recovering from an injury he sustained while on national duty for Ghana's Black Stars earlier this month, according to the website.
"In the meanwhile, Orlandopiratesfc.com can announce that Richard Ofori will miss the PSL match against Chippa United," read another statement.
"The Ghanaian international, who was injured while on international duty for the Black Stars, is still in pain at the injury location."
The 27-year-old goalkeeper started all three of Pirates' competitive matches this season, including last month's MTN8 quarter-final against Swallows FC.
In addition, the Pirates confirmed that Zakhele Lepasa's fracture is still being treated.
The 24-year-old striker has been out of action since December 2020, after appearing in seven league games and scoring one for the Buccaneers previous season.
Innocent Maela has been out of action for two weeks due to an adductor longus injury, but the Bafana Bafana international is anticipated to return to full training in three months.
