Jean Clair Todibo dismissed doubts about a knock as he came off against Sevilla and is set to face Eibar in the next La Liga game.
The clash with Sevilla was his first appearance since the Joan Gamper and he could not finish it, but because of match fitness problems not an injury.
The defender said: "It's been a long time since playing and I felt tired. I'm a bit sad for not being able to finish the game but the change was because I was tired."
With Umtiti injured, Pique suspended and Ronald Araujo sent off, Todibo must face Eibar at Ipurua.
"I was really looking forward to playing in La Liga, because it's not the same playing in a friendly like the Gamper," said Todibo.
"It's an important win because we keep showing we are strong at home and it's key to fight for La Liga."
