suffered a medial knee ligament injury in the Stormers' Super Rugby victory against the Sharks in Durban on Saturday.
centre was taken for scans by the Springboks' medical team on Monday
morning and will be sidelined for between four and six weeks, ruling him
out of the Incoming Series.
De Allende's place in the squad has been taken by Lions flyhalf Marnitz Boshoff.
