Some critics have chastised the Arsenal captain not just for his results so far this season, but also for his lack of participation in the matches.
Aubameyang has 14 goals this season and six in his last seven games across all competitions.
At the time, Aubameyang was at the top of his career, having scored 31 goals in his first full season at Arsenal and two in his first two games of his second.
Recently, Aubameyang has not supported himself in his quest for rhythm.
The Gabonese striker has not scored since been substituted in both of Arsenal's Premier League matches since being dropped for the North London Derby victory over Tottenham Hotspur last month due to disciplinary issues.
His success has dipped since signing his now notorious £350,000 a week contract extension.
Aubameyang contracted the disease while on international duty with Gabon in late March, and he featured in Arsenal's first two games after the break before becoming ill.
Arsenal will play Fulham and Everton in their next two Premier League games before facing Villarreal in the first leg of their Europa League semi-final on April 29. Arteta is uncertain when Aubameyang will be fit enough to return, but is optimistic that his captain will be back in action soon.
"We'll see how he recovers." "I believe he will need a few days to heal. He mentioned to me that he wants to return as soon as possible. But I'm not sure. It shouldn't take long if the treatment is successful."
