Nottingham Forest are waiting to discover the extent of the wrist injury suffered by Paul Anderson in Friday night's FA Cup fourth round clash against Derby.
The on-loan Liverpool youngster impressed during a spell at Swansea last season and had just begun to show glimpses of his talent in recent weeks following the appointment of Billy Davies.
However, after receiving a bleak initial prognosis on the winger, Forest assistant manager David Kelly has moved to offer the club's support ahead of a potentially lengthy spell on the sidelines.
"We think he has suffered a fracture or dislocation of his right wrist. At this stage we are not too sure and we are not too sure how long he would be out for. He will go for scans and we will know more after that.
"We wish him well and a quick recovery because he has been absolutely brilliant for us over the last few weeks."
