PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - Portland Timbers midfielder Diego Chara is expected to miss two weeks because of a fractured bone in his left hand.

Chara was injured during Sunday’s 1-1 tie with the Los Angeles Galaxy. A procedure to stabilize the fractured third metacarpal bone was performed Monday.

Chara, in his fourth season with the Timbers, has started each of Portland’s 10 games this season.

The Timbers also announced Tuesday that the team has acquired forward Fanendo Adi on loan from Danish first-division team FC Copenhagen.

The 23-year-old Nigerian had three goals in nine matches for Copenhagen during the 2013-14 Danish Super Ligaen season.
