Although Digne is only back-up to Jordi Alba the injury comes at a bad time with a packed fixture schedule and injuries starting to bite.
Barca also have injury concerns over key stars Lionel Messi, Sergio Busquets and Marc-Andre ter Stegen ahead of tough games against Sevilla and Roma.
The club will be preying Jordi Alba stays fit and he saw plenty of action with Spain, playing 79 minutes against Argentina and all 90 minutes against Germany.
