Mitchell Marsh will miss the first ODI between Australia and India on Saturday after an illness forced him to spend two days in hospital.
The selectors have drafted in his Perth Scorchers team-mate Ashton Turner as a replacement, and Marsh’s availability for the other two ODIs is also doubtful.
"We'll see how he goes, but he certainly won't (play) this first game and we will wait and see how he recovers," said coach Justin Langer.
Turner is in a rich vein of form for the Scorchers having scored 60*, 47 and 43* in his last three Big Bash innings.

"I remember when Mike Hussey came into Australian cricket, the thing that almost got him a shot in the one-day side was his running between his wickets," Langer added.
"That might sound like the dumbest thing you've ever heard but you watch Ashton Turner, the way he runs between wickets is unbelievable.
"He's such a great athlete, it puts so much pressure (on the opposition)."
If he does make the starting XI, it would be his ODI debut. He has, however, played three T20Is for his country back in 2017 against Sri Lanka.
