No, Darren Mattocks is not injured. Mattocks was named to the preliminary 30-man roster for Jamaica's Copa America team. The final 23-man roster will be announced by June 1st, with the tournament set to take place June 11th until July 4th.

With how Mattocks has performed for the Jamaican national team, and for the Vancouver Whitecaps, I expect him to be a part of  the Copa America team. However, in addition to the Copa America, we have to remember that the Gold Cup will commence on July 7th, and run until July 26th. With teams being required to release their players for June 1st (for Copa America), expect to be missing Mattocks from the lineup for all of June and July. Good thing there is depth hey?

Again, congrats to Darren Mattocks. Certainly a well deserved call-up.
