There's potentially bad news for “Dancing With The Stars” fans who are rooting for Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Heather Morris. Maks is facing an injury that he got during rehearsals on Friday, and while the full extent of the problem isn't known, it seems that he'll be out at least for Week 2.

Chmerkovskiy's injury came on Friday

“Good Morning America” shared the news on Maksim Chmerkovskiy's injury and shared a clip of when the issue occurred while he was rehearsing with Heather Morris. He pulled up and stopped due to a problem with his calf muscle, noting that it felt as if something had hit it.

He immediately stopped putting any weight on it and was clearly in lots of pain, and “DWTS” fans are certainly hoping that this isn't an Achilles injury.

Lara Spencer shared via “GMA” that someone would be standing in for Chmerkovskiy during Monday's Week 2 performance with Heather Morris and that Maks would be sitting out until further notice. Of course, Maksim would have gotten a lot of additional information regarding his injury Friday and over the weekend, but the show will likely hold on to additional specifics until they can share the news during the next “Dancing With the Stars” broadcast.

The extent of Maks' injury is unknown

Maks hasn't shared anything about his injury via his Twitter page as of yet, and Heather did post one tweet about being excited for Monday nights now, but she didn't reference Chmerkovskiy's injury.

There has been a lot of buzz among “DWTS” fans regarding Morris' significant dance background and how that might be unfair to the other Season 24 contestants, but having her partner face an injury early on in the season like this could indeed become a game changer.

How serious is Maksim Chmerkovskiy's injury and how long will it keep him sidelined this spring on “DWTS”?

“Team Maksimum Heat” fans are anxious for additional details, and they'll be doing their best to cast their votes and keep Maksim and Heather Morris in the hunt for the Season 24 “Dancing With the Stars” mirror-ball trophy this spring regardless of this setback.
