Mirko Vucinic is a doubt for Juventus’ home game against Udinese in Serie A this weekend.
The summer signing from Roma missed Tuesday's Coppa Italia tie against his former club with injury.
Some sceptics questioned how serious the problem was amidst claims that he didn’t want to feature against the Giallorossi.
However, Vucinic is struggling with a left knee problem and reports from Turin are suggesting that he won’t be fit in time for Saturday.
Juventus boss Antonio Conte is already dealing with fitness concerns over Claudio Marchisio and Simone Pepe.
Both men picked up problems last weekend in the 2-0 win at Atalanta. They are on the mend, but they’ll have to prove their fitness for the Week 20 tie.
