New Repsol Honda team-mate Jorge Lorenzo is also recovering from surgery  to treat a foot fracture.

Three-time champion Lorenzo, who is replacing retired compatriot Dani Pedrosa for Honda on the grid next year, fractured his foot at Aragon in September and had surgery on 2 weeks ago.

Both riders will now be looking to regain full fitness ahead of the Sepang Test weekend, which begins on February 6.
