The defensive midfielder came off at half-time in Wednesday's 2-2 draw with Fortuna Düsseldorf because he was feeling ill and is still suffering from flu-like symptoms.
"You could see in the first half [against Fortuna Düsseldorf] that he had some problems and that he was feeling a bit ill," said RB Leipzig coach Julian Nagelsmann at the pre-match press conference and added:
"He had chills and fever after the game.
"He'll definitely be out because he's obviously suffering from a flu-like infection."
Yussuf Poulsen, Ethan Ampadu and Hannes Wolf will also be unavailable for Saturday's game at Red Bull Arena.
