Portland Timbers forward Felipe Mora is expected to be sidelined through early April after undergoing a successful arthroscopic debridement surgery of his left knee.
Mora’s recovery time is estimated to be six weeks, marking the Timbers’ April 3 match against the LA Galaxy a possible return date for the forward.
The player initially joined the Western Conference side in 2020 on loan from Liga MX’s Pumas UNAM before securing a permanent move one year later on January 19, 2021.
Mora has recorded 18 goals and seven assists across 48 appearances, and played an integral role in the team’s title race in 2021. During the MLS Cup final hosted by the Timbers, Mora scored a second-half stoppage time goal to give fans hope before ultimately falling to NYCFC on penalty kicks.
The player’s absence leaves head coach Giovanni Savarese to focus on Designated Player Jaroslaw Niezgoda. He joined Portland in 2020, scoring 10 goals and two assists in 30 appearances. His run was cut short after suffering a torn ACL in November 2020 and undergoing rehab.
