MADRID -- Looking desolate, Lionel Messi sat on the ground and slowly began rolling down his socks, knowing his night was over. Barcelona fans in the stands could not hide their apprehension, sensing the teams biggest star was in trouble.Messi had just pulled a muscle in Barcelonas 1-1 draw against Atletico Madrid at the Camp Nou on Wednesday, and tests showed he will be sidelined for three weeks with a groin strain.Although the injury leaves Barcelona facing the difficult task of playing without the star midfielder, it has no need to panic. The Catalan club has coped extremely well recently when playing without Messi, who was out for nearly two months last year with a knee injury.In the nine games he missed from September through November, Barcelona won seven, drawing one and losing another -- a 2-1 defeat at Sevilla. Coach Luis Enriques team outscored opponents 21-6 as Neymar and Luis Suarez stepped up to make up for their teammates absence. The two scored 18 goals between them with Messi sidelined.Last year, Messi had an even longer injury and we overcame it, said Luis Enrique, whose team still went on to win the Spanish league.Messi wont play in at least three games -- at Sporting Gijon and Celta Vigo in the Spanish league, and at Borussia Moenchengladbach in the Champions League. He is certain to miss Argentinas World Cup qualifiers against Peru on Oct. 6 and Paraguay on Oct. 11.We try to take care of him, but its complicated with this calendar, Luis Enrique said.The coach said Barcelona will remain strong enough without Messi but admitted that he will have to look for different solutions.The midfielder, who got hurt while sprinting for the ball in the 58th minute, was replaced by Arda Turan, who will be the likely starter in the next three games. Turan had also played when Neymar was away with Brazil during the Summer Olympics.Luis Enrique could also replace Messi with midfielder Rafinha, giving more freedom up front to Neymar and Suarez, or with newly signed forward Paco Alcacer, which would change the teams tactics. The coach may also pick between midfielders Denis Suarez and Andre Gomes.Barcelona trails Real Madrid by three points after five rounds in the Spanish league. It leads Group C in the Champions League thanks to its 7-0 rout of Celtic in the opener on Sept. 13 -- a game in which Messi scored three goals.If Messi recovers within the timeframe given by the team, he will be back in time for the highly anticipated Champions League match against Manchester City on Oct. 19.Messi had already endured similar injury problems earlier this season. He hurt a muscle while playing for Barcelona in the Spanish league and had a groin problem that kept him from playing for Argentina in a World Cup qualifier.He has scored eight goals with Barcelona this season.---Tales Azzoni on Twitter: http://twitter.com/tazzoni.

Paul Georges buzzer-beating 3-pointer at the end of the third quarter spurred a 21-4 run, finally sending Indiana past the Magic 97-87 in a tougher-than-expected opening night matchup. Womens Bucks Jerseys . Speaking to the Chicago Tribune at baseballs Winter Meetings in Lake Buena Vista, Florida, Boras called the former home of the Expos a "tremendous environment" for baseball. http://www.cheapbucksjerseyschina.com/malcolm-brogdon-jersey/ . Hey!" The lower tier of the School End of Queens Park Rangers Loftus Road was packed solid with a very festive-sounding Chelsea choral section in this particular part of South Africa Road London, W12. John Henson Jersey . After Mondays hard-fought loss, the wait seemed longer than usual. Getting set to go their separate ways for a short Christmas break, the Raptors coach credited his team for their effort on a seemingly impossible three-game road trip, urging them to build on that success when they get back to work at the end of the week. Discount Bucks Jerseys .J. -- Pitcher Carl Pavano is retiring after 14 major league seasons. Swedens Alex Noren moved into the worlds top 20 after holding his nerve to claim a remarkable third victory in his last eight events at the British Masters.Noren carded a final round of 69 at The Grove to finish 18 under par and two shots ahead of Austrias Bernd Wiesberger, with Lee Westwood a stroke further back in third.Ranked 110th in the world after missing the cut in the Irish Open in May, Noren will be 18th in Mondays updated standings after adding Sundays triumph - and the first prize of £500,000 - to victories in the Scottish Open and European Masters.Its very unreal, said the 34-year-old, who only played two events in 2014 due to career-threatening wrist injuries. I never thought about this going into this season.I just worked quite hard and sometimes you get lucky like this. You have to hit the right shots at the right times and Im very happy.I believe in myself, but the big thing is you dont have to play a perfect game. Just a few parts of your game need to be strong to get a win and I try to stay humble. I know golf is a tough game.Noren, whose win made certain of a Masters debut at Augusta next April, took a three-shot lead into the final round and birdied the first two holes, only for playing partner Richard Bland to do likewise.Blands bogey on the seventh left Noren four clear, but the Monaco-based Swede then bogeyed the eighth as Bland holed from 50 feet across the green for an unlikely birdie.Norens lead was down to a single shot when he bogeyed the 11th and Wiesberger briefly joined Noren in top spot with a birdie on the par-five 15th, only for Noren to do likewise in the group behind.With Wiesberger unable to birdie the par-five 18th Noren only needed a par to win, but a superb pitch to two feet set up a closing birdie.Unfortunately this was not quite my week on the greens, but to finish well in a strong field like this helps going into the final couple of events this year, Wiesberger said.I would have loved to squeeze another birdie in therre, give him something to think about coming up the last.dddddddddddd. But Im still very happy with my performance.Westwood feels he let down good friend and Ryder Cup captain Darren Clarke after failing to win any of his three matches as Europe suffered their heaviest defeat for 35 years at Hazeltine.The 43-year-old then missed the cut in last weeks Alfred Dunhill Links Championship, thanks largely to a second round of 82, but a closing 67 was enough to secure his best result since finishing runner-up to Danny Willett in the Masters.Obviously I think everybody was disappointed with the Ryder Cup and the Dunhill was a bit of a relapse from that, really, said Westwood, who will take over from Luke Donald as tournament host next year, with Close House in Northumberland expected to be the venue.This week everything was back together again so Im looking forward to the end of the season and to some big events coming up.Im really looking forward to the World Cup at the end of the year with Danny because Ive never played in it before and its on one of the best golf courses in the world, Kingston Heath.Bland, who was seeking a first European Tour title at the 395th attempt, dropped shots on the 16th and 17th and had to settle for a five-way tie for fourth alongside Graeme McDowell, Alexander Levy, Peter Hanson and Tommy Fleetwood.The 43-year-old has now recorded seven top-10 finishes in by far the best season of his career, but said: Its tough. I thought with six holes to play it was anybodys.I thought I hit a good shot at 16 and it just hit the wind a little bit and then I hit a poor chip. I didnt think I hit that poor a tee shot at 17 and you couldnt put it in a worse place. Its tough but Ill keep trying.Ive got the WGC-HSBC Champions event now and if someone had offered me that at the start of the year, Id have probably laughed at them.
