The Blackburn striker is struggling with a knee injury he picked up in last weekend's win over West Brom.
Bellamy visited a specialist about his knee earlier this week and although the injury is not as bad as first feared he will miss the trip to Belfast and looks likely to be absent for the game with Azerbaijan.
The former Newcastle man is expected to be sidelined for up to two weeks and his absence is a major blow for Wales boss John Toshack.
Toshack is also waiting on the fitness of Wolves defender Rob Edwards as he is struggling with a back problem.
Gillingham midfielder Andrew Crofts and Bristol City striker David Cotterill have been promoted from the Under-21 squad to the senior squad.
