The 21-year-old youth academy graduate, who has been used as cover during the absences through injury of Carles Puyol and Gerard Pique, will be out for between 15 and 20 days, Barca said in a statement.
Puyol and Pique played together in central defence for only the third time this season in Saturday's 3-1 La Liga win at home to Real Zaragoza.
Pique returned recently from a foot injury, while Puyol was back after 45 days out with a dislocated elbow.
