The news will be a cruel blow to the forward and boss Massimiliano Allegri with their huge game against Chelsea on Wednesday night.
Despite their domestic struggles, Juventus won their Champions League opener 3-0 away to Malmo.
But they know Chelsea will prove a much sterner test, with a double-header against Zenit St Petersburg to follow in the competition.
On Sunday though, Juventus clung on to edge a five-goal thriller 3-2.
Leonardo Bonucci had doubled the hosts’ lead late in the first-half before ex-Southampton star Maya Yoshida made it 2-1 seconds later.
