Leicester City boss Nigel Pearson is hoping Richie Wellens can return in pre-season from his knee injury.
The midfielder had to be replaced during the first half of Monday's 2-1 home defeat by West Ham and an initial diagnosis has revealed a partial tear of his cruciate ligament.
While he will definitely miss Saturday's final-day trip to Leeds, Pearson hopes the 32-year-old will not need surgery and he can get back for pre-season.
The Foxes boss told the club's official website: "Richie has had his scan and he has a partial tear of his cruciate, which is a bit of a disappointment.
"We're still waiting for a bit more detail in terms of how we progress it, but his knee is fairly stable.
"We'll have to wait a little bit longer to get the final prognosis on how we take it further, but it's a shame because he's a player that very rarely gets injured.
"With cruciate injuries, if surgery is involved you're potentially looking at September or October, but if we feel it is treatable conservatively then he could be back for pre-season, so let's hope it's the latter."
