Kamara out for several weeks
The Vancouver Whitecaps will have to pull themselves out of a two-game losing skid without the services of star striker Kei Kamara. Head coach Carl Robinson said Kamara will miss at least the next three Major League Soccer games due to a groin injury. Kamara suffered the injury with about five minutes left in training last Thursday. Venezuelan striker Anthony Blondell, who missed the last game due to concussion, is expected to replace Kamara when the Whitecaps play Sporting Kansas City on the road Friday.
Martinez injured during training
Atlanta United striker Josef Martinez left Wednesday's training session with an apparent injury to his left arm. The 24-year-old Venezuelan stayed on the ground for several minutes after the collision with a teammate. A team spokesman said it's too early for a diagnosis or prognosis. Martinez already has five goals this season.
Impact lose midfielder Choiniere
Montreal Impact midfielder David Choiniere will be out five to six months after having surgery on his left ankle. The 21-year-old missed all but three games last season with the same injury. Choiniere has played five Major League Soccer games since joining the Impact in 2016, including one appearance this season.

Pomykal undergoes meniscus surgery

Ring out 4 weeks with knee injury
New York City announced prior to Saturday's match at the New England Revolution that midfielder Alex Ring is expected to miss four weeks with a right knee injury.

Ibrahimovic has made only seven appearances for United this season after suffering a serious knee injury last April. He is the highest profile player to have joined an MLS club since Kaka in 2014.

League format : Soccer / Football : MLS 2018
MLS awards the regular season winners with the Supporters' Shield and a direct berth in the CONCACAF Champions League, the continental tournament. The MLS post-season tournament involve 12 clubs. The top six teams in points from each conference at the end of the regular season will qualify for the playoffs. The third-place team in each conference will host the sixth seed in one single-elimination game while No. 4 hosts No. 5 in the other. The four conference semifinalists then will be reseeded to ensure the first-place finisher faces off against the lowest-ranked knockout round survivor.
The four Conference Semifinals will be decided by two-game aggregate series, with the lower-seeded team hosts the first game. The winners of those four series advance to the home-and-away, total-goals Conference Championships that will determine the MLS Cup finalists. In this round the lower-seeded team also hosts the first game. The MLS Cup is a single championship match hosted at the home venue of the participating team with a higher regular-season point total.
