Steve Smith has been ruled out for a period of the Bangladesh Premier League with an elbow injury.
The former Australian captain is to fly home for assessment after sustaining the problem during his time with Comilla Victorians.
He is due to undergo a scan in the next 48 hours to evaluate the extent of the issue, a Cricket Australia spokesperson confirmed.
"We are not sure how he picked it up, but the last two days he could not bat in training due to the problem," Victorians head coach Mohammad Salahuddin told AFP.
"He had an MRI test here but the result was not very clear. He sent the report to Australian physicians who advised him to return home immediately."
Smith, whose one-year international ban for ball-tampering expires in April, has managed 13 runs in two games for Comilla so far this season.
Depending on the outcome of the scan, his club expect him to return and take some further part in the competition.
