Walker missed a rare game for The Foxes on Saturday as the persistent problem kept him out of the 2-0 success at Rotherham United.
The England international has been relieved of training duties for the next four weeks in an attempt to finally cure the complaint.
Foxes manager Micky Adams admits he may have to raid the loan market if Walker's injury shows no signs of improvement.
"Ian has had a problem with his knee for a number of weeks and we are trying to settle it down," Adams told the club's official website.
"We possibly need to look at bringing a loan keeper in if we can't do that.
"At the moment, we have decided to give him four weeks off in terms of the work that he is doing to see if we can settle it down. If that doesn't happen, he will need an operation."
Another Leicester player carrying a niggling injury is Matt Heath, with the defender being hampered by a hamstring complaint.
Adams added: "Matt Heath injured his hamstring on the Thursday before the Rotherham game.
"Matt has got a persistent hamstring problem at the moment and we need to sort it out."
