Josef Martinez endured a potential season-ending injury during the weekend, after colliding with teammate 'Pity' Martinez in the game against San Jose Earthquakes.

Latest reports have set Josef's injury as weeks rather than months with Atlanta United coach, Frank de Boer, mentioning the striker is working "day-to-day," and with the game against New York City FC this Wednesday, the Five Stripes have categorized Martinez as "questionable" in its notes.

Frank de Boer said on Monday, Josef Martinez would likely miss at least one game, but the striker questionable status could mean he could miss more than just one game.

Wednesday's game has massive implication for both sides, with the Five Stripes hoping to set themselves atop the Eastern Conference standings ahead of NYCFC for a first-round playoff bye besides clinching home-field advantage throughout the East bracket.
