Palermo could also lose Fabrizio Miccoli to injury tomorrow, leaving only Massimo Maccarone as an available forward.
The Sicilians make the trip to Chievo on Sunday afternoon and hope to continue the form shown in their 3-0 thrashing of Sampdoria.
However, Miccoli pulled up during training with a hardening of the left calf muscle and might not be risked.
As Abel Hernandez and Mauricio Pinilla are already sidelined by long-term injuries, it leaves only Maccarone available.
It is a curious twist for Maccarone, who had been ready to leave during the January transfer window due to a lack of playing time.
