Repsol Honda rider suffered the injury in a crash at the Qatar GP last weekend and will take three to four weeks to recover.
After a CAT scan, Repsol Honda Team and Jorge Lorenzo have confirmed that the rider has suffered a fissure to the first rib on the right side.
The five-time World Champion suffered a nasty highside at Turn 6 in FP3 and despite being declared fit for the rest of the weekend, a scan on Tuesday revealed his most recent injury setback.
The injury will take three to four weeks to heal, with Lorenzo vowing to fight at the Argentina GP, which takes place in just over two weeks’ time.
