Zlatan Ibrahimovic will be available for the LA Galaxy's first derby against LAFC on Saturday.
Ibrahimovic is scheduled to arrive in Los Angeles on Thursday and will train with the club on Friday.
"We'll see how he is when he arrives, obviously he gets here on Thursday and then we have to see how he is physically and everything else," Sigi Schmid said after training on Tuesday.
"I think there's a chance he can play a part in the [LAFC] game. I don't think he's going to play 90 minutes, but we have to evaluate once he gets here. It's a long flight and [we have to] see how he feels.
"Friday is a pretty easy practice the day before the game. We just expect him to be able to be a part of the group and start to introduce himself to the group."
