Both Stones and Laporte have missed Man City's last three matches through injury, and the former is yet to play a single minute of first-team action for the Citizens this term.
There had been suggestions that both centre-backs would be available for Saturday's key Premier League match against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.
However, according to The Telegraph, Stones and Laporte are out for the next two weeks, meaning that they will miss the game against Chelsea, in addition to matches against Paris Saint-Germain and Liverpool in the Champions League and Premier League respectively.
Man City secured their spot in the fourth round of the EFL Cup courtesy of a 6-1 win over Wycombe Wanderers on Tuesday night. body check tags ::
