It has been revealed that influential Sheffield Wednesday midfielder Kieran Lee will visit a specialist again as he looks to solve his hip problem.
The 29-year old has been a key player for the Owls over the years and despite making 15 appearances this season, the hip injury has seriously impacted him.
Lee was one of nine senior players who missed the 1-0 defeat to Wolves on Friday night and according to the Sheffield Star he will see a specialist for the second time this season in order to try and cure the injury.
The former Oldham man had been involved in the previous five games so his absence was untimely, along with keeper Kieran Westwood and star man Barry Bannan who also missed out against the league leaders.
And, Carvalhal gave an update on the duo and seemed hopeful they wouldn’t face an extended spell out. “We will see what happens over the next few days. We will have some scans, and maybe they will be okay. Let’s see.”
The Owls return to action on Saturday when they host Middlesbrough, with their manager Garry Monk under extreme pressure as well.
This is very bad news for both Lee and Wednesday. The injuries that Carvalhal has had to contend with are something else and they seem to be to all his key players.
Westwood, Bannan and Lee joined Tom Lees, Fernando Forestieri, Sam Hutchinson and Steven Fletcher as important players who are missing.
Obviously there is a serious worry for Lee if he is having to see a specialist again as Carvalhal needs all of those quality players out there as soon as possible if they are to have any chance of saving this season.
